I actually like Slade a lot too, I need to get some old albums by both bands.

I have a compilation called "Hard Centres-The Rock Years", which if you really want to taste the power that would be the place to start. That or the "Live at The Rainbow 1973" which I mentioned previously. A general compilation just won't do.

and for Slade: "Slade on Stage"
"What Ever Happened To?"
"Til Deaf Do Us Part"

That Rainbow '73 album is fun as hell. They just blast through those songs - Steve Priest's backing vocals are insane. Brian Connoly screwing up the lyrics in the pre-chorus of Ballroom Blitz is pretty damn funny. I've never heard of that compilation you mentioned - will definitely have to check it out.

Slade on stage is a killer live album. 'When I'm Dancing...' wins the favourite song choice for me (still haven't heard the studio version though - I don't have We'll Bring the House Down yet). I love what the re-issuers did in recently packaging all of Slade's live stuff on to that two-disc live anthology.

How in THEE Hell did I not know that all these great songs were Sweet? I'd heard a bunch of these over the years, but just didn't know it was a band named Sweet. I need to get a one-stop-shop greatest hits of them.

I had this disc at one time...
http://www.amazon.com/Best-Sweet/dp/B000002UQF/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1454445467&sr=1-1&keywords=sweet

It's a pretty decent comp if you're looking for a cheapy hits package to get you started.

That sucks!

I love Sweet.  Desolation Boulevard is still a frequent spinner for me even after all these decades.

RIP sir.

RIP, sir. I have always joked that I have more Sweet songs in my collection as covers than originals. Talk about a testament to their influence of a lot of our faves.

I know exactly what you mean. I was never a big Thin Lizzy fan, but I have tons of TL covers in my collection. Or bands that sound like Thin Lizzy. That I'll listen to. But actual Thin Lizzy? Meh.

On paper, Sweet should have been a slam dunk for me. I like a good power-pop rock band. But a greatest hits comp was all I ever desired.
