Bundle: T Rex 1970, 1971 and "Slider" Print

T Rex
Following the success of the 2LP set “1972”, Demon Records is proud to announce two new releases in the Marc Bolan “Songwriter” series . This is a vinyl only, intimate series that focuses on the private and creative Marc Bolan , with the emphasis on how that affected his songwriting .

 

The first of these new releases is “ 1970”, which takes us to the year in which Tyrannosaurus Rex metamorphosed into T. Rex . This 18 track selection commences with six tracks by Tyrannosaurus Rex, where songs like “Woodland Bop” point the way to the duo’s future sound. 

On side two, the electric T. Rex sound emerges with songs like “Beltane and the hit “Ride A White As the sleevenote says, “ By late 1970 , Bolan was on his feet and sending fans home with his revival of Eddie Cochran’s teen anthem ‘Summertime Blues’. It was now time to write some teen anthems of his own ”.

This release has been compiled and fully annotated by Mark Paytress , author of the definitive biography “Marc Bolan: The Rise And Fall of a 20 th Century Superstar” and the recently published “Glam! When Superstars Rocked The World, 1970 74”.
