Record label of Australian release:
Skweeze Me, Pleeze Me by Slade was written by lead vocalist Noddy Holder and bassist Jim Lea, and produced by Chas Chandler. Lea originally had the idea for the chorus after visiting the band’s regular pub, The Trumpet in Bilston, where he saw local pianist Reg Kierle performing there.
During the release of the song, drummer Don Powell was involved in a near-fatal car crash in July, briefly throwing the band’s existence into doubt. Despite his critical condition, Powell was able to make a recovery and the band entered the studio to record material for their next album Old New Borrowed and Blue later in the year.
