March 12th 2017 – and I’m reviewing ‘The Slider’ whilst prepping Sunday lunch for our family. The album has been released on 180g vinyl by Demon Records, and this I quickly note, is a limited edition release – so grab a copy whilst you can.
First thing I learnt – the photo on the front cover – the sleeve notes tell me the picture was taken by Ringo Starr. I love useless trivia like that, could well come up in a quiz one day.
The album kicks off with ‘Metal Guru’ – which sounds as if it could be been recorded yesterday, but unbelievably it’s 45 years old now! ‘Telegram Sam’ is another recognisable hit on this album.
