AMBROSE SLADE (SLADE) – BEGINNINGS / 1969

Slade could rock in 1969 is proven, too, in their cover of Steppenwolf’s “Born To Be Wild”, which sounds more ferocious than the original to me.

When Holder wraps his tongue around lyrics such as “like a true nature’s child, we were born, born to be wild”, you believe him, as Powell’s drum kit explodes with energetic pounding and ringing high hat sounds, while Lea’s bass throbs with menace as Hill windmill slashes his guitar strings. Great stuff.

Tracks are:
1. Genesis
2. Everybody’s Next One
3. Knocking Nails Into My House
4. Roach Daddy
5. Ain’t Got No Heart
6. Pity The Mother
7. Mad Dog Cole
8. Fly Me High
9. If This World Were Mine
10. Martha My Dear
11. Born To Be Wild
12. Journey To The Centre Of Your Mind
