Slade in Flame is a soundtrack album by the British rock group Slade, released on 29 November 1974. It contains songs featured in the film of the same name. The album reached on the UK album chart and produced two hit singles, "Far Far Away", which reached 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
Slade in Flame is a tough album to judge. It marks the end of Slade's rule over the British charts - the album went to number six (the band's previous four LPs reached number one), but it would be nearly ten years before the band would return to the top of the pops. Made as an accompanying piece to the movie of the same name, Slade in Flame was different than the group's other records. It's an artistic tour de force for a band that was looked on as "just a good time. Although Slade was that, the band had a lot more in its bag of tricks, and this album shows i. .
The Slade in Flame album followed in November, peaking at No. 6. Though the record was lauded by critics, the album did not sell as well as expected, particularly as the band's previous three albums had all reached number on.In January 1975, the Slade in Flame film was released. Although it later received recognition as one of the greatest rock films, the initial reception towards the film was less positive, particularly from fans. Slade's audience did not expect the band to produce a film with a bleak and sour atmosphere.
