Highlights From The Year Of T. Rextasy On White Vinyl 2LP!
A Thrilling Snapshot Of Bolan's T. Rex At The Height Of Their Powers!
Includes Live Tracks, Radio Sessions, Soundtrack Music, B-Sides & "T. Rextras"!

This item not eligible for any further discount offers!

Having risen to superstardom through 1971, 1972 saw Marc Bolan attain the heights of "T. Rexmania," or "T. Rextasy," as the press dubbed the frenzy that took over the UK's music scene.

This 2LP set features highlights from that year. It brings together the 1972 Tony Visconti-produced studio recordings, broadcasts and performances made by Bolan and his band, T. Rex, putting the listener into the shoes of a T. Rex fan that year, with selections from singles, albums, live concerts, radio broadcasts, a film soundtrack and more.

The collection charts Bolan's manic year mirabilis as he toured the world; he was a ubiquitous figure in concert halls, at press conferences, on radio stations, television and throughout the press. Now, 50 years since his commercial peak, the full breadth of his artistry is revealed via classic hits, contemplative ballads and rare recordings - with a dash of Elton and Ringo thrown in for good measure.

This 2 LP set contains selections from:

"Live At Wembley" - historic T. Rex concert from 18 March 1972
"Born To Boogie" The Soundtrack Album, featuring Elton John and Ringo Starr
Marc Bolan and T. Rex's US and UK Radio Sessions
1972 album tracks and B-sides, plus a "lost" version of "Telegram Sam" from the Christmas Top Of The Pops
