Rocking Slade collection wins best box

slade_rockedtheworld

Congratulations go to Salvo Music, since their Slade box set from last year – When Slade Rocked The World 1971-1975 – won Special Catalogue Release of the Year at last night’s AIM awards (AIM is the trade body for independent labels)…

The Slade set contains four LPs pressed on coloured vinyl, four seven-inch singles, a flexi-disc, two CDs and various books. In fact we made an SDEtv unboxing video which you can view below:

Noddy Holder took to the stage to collect the award. He told journalists “In those days, never did you think 45 years down the line people would be buying the albums.”

The box was produced for Salvo by Key Production, although ironically, this particular award was sponsored by one of their manufacturing competitors Modo.

When Slade Ruled The World was originally exclusive to PledgeMusic, although it quickly became available via other channels, including Amazon.

    My favorite band from the 80’s! Used to love the mirrors on Noddy’s top hat. They should be in the RRHOF.

    • Fabrice Dray says:

      I don t like corecting very much so I m sorry but even if they still existed in the 80scalling them an 80 s band is a bit of a stretch. Even that box set is from the 71-75 period

  2. Jake says:

    Like a lot of people in the U.S., I only discovered Slade after the Quiet Riot cover on Metal Health. But I became a huge fan of all their work after that. Slade on Stage is still one of my favorite live albums.

    I agree about being in the RRHOF. Under what criteria wouldn’t they be eligible? They had hits, and they influenced other bands. Their big failing was apparently not being really popular in the states.

  3. baward says:

    Drat, I was hoping that this box might be starting to drop in price. Now it’ll be more expensive than ever :-)

  4. Alexander says:

    Great box, great albums, got my box via PledgeMusic with lobby cards.

  5. Simon F says:

    Picked this up last November as a Black Friday deal from Amazon for 60 of your Earth pounds. Terrific box. Well done Salvo Music!

  6. Joachim says:

    Isn’t it time to launch an SDE.com award for the best SDE box of the year? Hey, we can’t leave this to business. This is a very nice box, but it wouldn’t be in my top 10 list.

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      The worst was Classic Pop’s 2014 awards. “Best box set” went to that The The Soul Mining vinyl box. This was the year Songs From The Big Chair was reissued as a six-disc set.

  7. Jim H. says:

    as SOON as I saw this box listed, I HAD to get it! And as a graphic designer as well, Liam a sucker for a cool package design!! A really nicely done package indeed. Here in the USA, I kept reading abut them in various US music magazines whilst in high school in the late 70s, and I think the first LP i found was “Nobody’s Fool” which, admittedly, was not their best, but a start for me!!!

  8. P C says:

    “AIM is the trade boy”. Is that something like being a whipping boy?

  9. Ian Gilchrist says:

    Just to be clear (and also slightly pedantic) – Key Productions manufactured the box, they weren’t involved in any of the creative decisions. It was effectively produced by me and was designed by the hardest working Scouse in showbusiness, design marvel #MickRimmer (who also worked with me on the great Associates reissues that were released in June, my last gasp before I left USM/BMG).

    Pledge were great promotional partners, and the best reissue PR in the UK, #StuartKirkham, ensured that When Slade Rocked The World received reams of coverage.
