Three Unique CDs. One FREE!
All played, sung and recorded by Julian’s brother, Adrian Slade.
‘The Funny Side of Slade’
When Julian Slade died in 2006 his brother Adrian decided to make a recording of 12 of his funniest lyrics and songs, as a tribute to his wit. The technical quality of the recording is not perfect because it was originally made on tape at home and then re-mastered digitally for CD. Nevertheless the words of the songs are clear and the fun is appreciable. Get a flavour of the CD by clicking Listen below.
‘Late Night Slade’
A studio recorded CD that features 21 of the cabaret songs and monologues of Adrian Slade, written and performed by him in BAOR, Cambridge, and London venues and at social/charitable occasions across the country between 1955 and 1963. Here is a unique commentary in words and song on those social and political times of transition before the swinging ‘60s kicked in.
Many of the songs were performed in Cambridge Footlights cabarets between 1957 and 1959 when Adrian’s cabaret partners were John Drummond and Joe Melia, followed by Geoffrey Pattie and Peter Cook. Get a flavour of the CD by clicking Listen below.
