It was released 1 November 1980 and reached No. 21 on the UK charts. The album was issued by Polydor in the wake of new interest in the band following their successful appearance at the 1980 Reading Festival, filling in for Ozzy Osbourne. The album featured most of the band’s big hits from their early and mid 1970s heyday in the UK as well as three of the band’s singles from post-1977. This collection, alongside the band’s subsequent 1981 studio release We’ll Bring the House Down, further cemented Slade’s comeback in the UK and Europe.

The compilation was compiled by Polydor and has little input from the band. According to the Slade fan club, Polydor spent £250,000 on promotion of Slade Smashes!.[1] The album was a success in the UK, reaching No. 21 and gaining a Gold certification in December for selling 200,000 copies.[2][3]

In a 1980 fan club interview, lead vocalist Noddy Holder commented of the compilation’s release: “It’s not been the Reading Festival that has prompted the release of the album – they had already made plans to release the album before we decided to do the show.[4] In a 1980 interview with Sounds, Holder further added: “This compilation will be great for the fans, a chance to get all the hits on one record. But we don’t relate to them in the same way any more, the way we play them now is bugger all like the records anyway.

this 20 track LP will serve well those who have only recently caught up with Slade. They will find this set useful and satisfying reminder of the joy and exuberance of this Birmingham quartet. Those who have yet to find out had better start here and then grasp the opportunity to ‘feel the noize’ at the first chance.”
Sounds described the album as a “mighty meaty big and bouncy collection of twenty timeless Slade faves”. They added: “This collection is a perfect reminder of the glories that were, marrying raucous rock and singalong pop in a superb celebration of unpretentious good times. They’re all here, the rowdy faultless chart-toppers.”

Slade are one of the most successful rock acts of all time. Of that there can be no argument. Noddy Holder, Dave Hill, Jim Lea and Don Powell rose from their Black Country beginnings in England’s industrial heartland to light up the world with their anthemic rock n’ roll and made us all feel the ‘noize’ .

During their long journey to the top they honed their live act by playing hundreds of gigs, playing anywhere and everywhere that would have them. There was no instant overnight success because you appeared on a TV talent show. Slade did it the hard way in a world devoid of the modern technology we all take for granted today. They paid their dues, learned their trade and bludgeoned their way into the national psyche’, a place still occupied by those that were there and the generations since that know them from their annual Christmas hit ‘Merry Xmas Everybody‘.
