Fifth album by the British rock group Slade released on 29 November 1974. The album contained songs from the film of the same name.
The album reached #6 on the UK album chart and produced two hit singles, "Far Far Away", which reached #2 on the UK Singles chart and "How Does it Feel". The band tried to give the album a "sixties" feel, as its eponymous film was set in 1966.
Though the record was lauded by critics, the response of the general public was somewhat muted, and the album did not sell as well as expected. In February 1975, "How Does It Feel" was released as a single. Reaching #15 on the charts it ended a run of 12 consecutive Top 4 hits. However, the song has since become regarded as one of the band's finest.
The album was released in the United States on the Warner Bros. label, with "The Bangin' Man" replacing "Summer Song (Wishing You Were Here)" & "Thanks for the Memory" replacing "Heaven Knows".
In October 2007, Classic Rock Magazine listed "Slade in Flame" at #18 in the "49 Best Soundtrack Albums" list.
In 1981, drummer Don Powell was asked in a fan club interview for his three favourite Slade songs. Powell stated "Far Far Away", "Standin' on the Corner" and "Gudbuy T'Jane" as his favourites.
Before the album's release, the album itself was awarded with a Silver and Gold Disc based on pre-order sales.
