Raging Slab - Black Belt In Boogie (1995)



I previously posted 'From A Southern Space' and 'Freeburden'. 'Black Belt In Boogie' is the last unreleased album of Raging Slab.
What can I say about Raging Slab that hasn't been said already? They're one of the best kept secrets of Southern Rock. They're raunchy, they rock hard and they sure do boogie! Some of these songs wound up, re-recorded, on the 'Sing Monkey Sing' album. This album is a lot better, though...
If you need a sample of what the band is like, check out the video below.

Hey Skydoog...It's been a while since I've been around. I see that you posted two more Raging Slab albums. With your 3 albums and my 5 albums that makes 8 albums. Is that all the albums they recorded? Also, I have a live show from 2001 that I found in space. Do you have/want? Can upload and post link here.

Hey Skydogg... Doh, I forget sometimes that I'm on the internet when I ask these questions. :-) It looks like I'm only missing Assmaster. I'll have to look around and I'm sure its out there somewhere.

Here's the link for the Chicago 2001 show:

Thanks a lot. Did you find the Assmaster yet? I'm still looking myself. Cheers!

ogmonster said...

Not yet.

I was going thru my mess of a collection and found this 2 in 1 "Slabbage". It is basically Assmaster + the True Death 12". It's minus Shiny Mama (which is on the S/T '89), + Earache My Eye & In Contempt. Not the same order as Assmaster but no big deal, right? I will upload for you in a day or so. Cool?

Hi Ogmonster,
Thanks, but no need to bother. I have that one too. I was curious about the Assmaster album, maybe the mixes would be different and the missing track I need, of course. But thanks a lot anyway!
Take care,
Skydogg

Hi there. I love RAGING SLAB. I got the Assmaster album on vinyl with a comic book included. Is not a great album I think. SLABBAGE contains most of the tracks but not all, two are missed.
The leader Greg Strzempka have played with BACKDRAFT, a great scandinavian-southern band. Don't miss their great album HERE TO SAVE YOU ALL!!!
