On September 9th, BMG issue All The World Is A Stage, a new 5CD box set of Slade live albums, including three previously unreleased shows.
Live At The New Victoria, recorded on April 24 1975, captures the band during the UK tour to promote their film, Flame.
Live At The Hucknall Miner’s Welfare Club, recorded on June 26 1980, features songs from their then-latest studio album, 'We’ll Bring The House Down', along with classics ‘Take Me Bak ’Ome’, ‘Gudbuy T’Jane’, ‘Everyday’ and the perennial ‘Merry Xmas Everybody’
Alive! At Reading, the third unreleased live set, captures the highlights from the band's sensational live performance to over 80,000 people in 1980. As last-minute replacements for Ozzy Osbourne, their set was arguably the highlight of the festival, and the sheer power of their act effectively silenced their critics and led to Slade enjoying a renaissance in the Eighties. A 3-track EP was issued from this performance at the time and further tracks appeared on a second EP.
Completing this box are Slade Alive!, the classic 1972 live album that brought Slade to prominence around most of the world, and also their excellent 1982 Slade On Stage album, which documents their 18 December 1981 Newcastle City Hall show.
All The World Is A Stage comes in a clamshell box with a 16-page booklet.
