At this point in the mid-1970s, Slade were certainly hitting high gear musically. The songwritting is more complex than before, with some nice changes of pace. The guitar sounds wonderfully gritty. Loud lead vocals. of course !!
The CD has 3 bonus tracks including the popular UK-only single "Raining in my Champayne".
The highly under-rated original release quickly hit the cut-out bins and marked Warner Brothers Records last effort to break the band big in America. Ironically, it was also the start of several years of massive Slade popularity on the European mainland.
The title track and "Do the Dirty" show Slade at it's hard rocking best while "Get on Up" and "L.A. Jinx" reflect the more complex arranging skills. Still, there are songs like "In for a Penny" that illustrate why Slade was always "too Brittish" for massive USA sales.
