About this product

Following on from the critical and commercial success of 2012’s 40th anniversary edition of “Electric Warrior’ and 2013’s ‘Marc Bolan At The BBC’ box set, comes this staggering new edition of ‘T.Rex’ – the first album Bolan released under his new T.Rex incarnation. ‘A Beard Of Stars’, the last record released as ‘Tyrannosaurus Rex’ will be released in the same formats on the same day.

Available as a new 2CD Deluxe Edition complete with new sleeve notes from Mark Paytress, ‘T.Rex’, along with its follow-up ‘A Beard Of Stars’ captures the fascinating transitional moment between Marc’s star child and boppin’ elf periods. On Disc One, the original album, comprehensively remastered contains many Bolan aficionados favourites including ‘Jewel’, ‘One Inch Rock’ and ‘The Children Of Rarn’ plus Marc’s first bona fide smash hit, ‘Ride A White Swan’. Disc Two features 18 songs including 3 Previously Unreleased Home Demos and 14 Previously Unreleased Alternate Takes from the original recording sessions at Trident Studios between June and August 1970.

Also included is the audio from the band’s first Top of the Pops appearance with ‘Ride A White Swan’ on November 10th 1970 which, while the video has been lost for many years, we have managed to track down an off-air recording which is something of a ”Holy Grail” for Marc Bolan fanatics.
