Product Notes

Limited vinyl LP pressing. 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 Walk" and the hit "Ride A White Swan". 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 20th Century Superstar", and the recently-published "Glam! When Superstars Rocked The World, 1970-74".
