Also in 1975, another double A-sided Flexi-Disc was released, this time by The Slade Fan Club, who reissued both of the "Talk" giveaways from Melanie and 19 magazines!
These were a "must-have" for anybody who missed either or both of them the first time around!

This flexi-disc was reissued as a "square" disc in the 2015 "When Slade Rocked The World 1971 - 1975" Box Set! :-

March, 1984

In 1984, "An Interview With Slade" 7" Picture-Disc Single was released in the UK, as a Limited Edition of 2,000, with no discernable label!
