This Single-Layer SHM-SACD can only be played on a Super Audio CD Player!

SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high resolution format such as SACD.

Welcome to the brilliant T.Rex featuring the enigmatic and elfin-like Marc Bolan with partner Mickey Finn. The former folky-rock John Peel darlings Tyrannosaurus Rex suddenly threw away their woodwind instruments, dumped the long album titles, shortened their name, said goodbye to hippydom, found some electric guitars and re-invented Rock n’ Roll!

David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust and this cosmic 1971 classic are the twin totems of glam-rock. With Marc Bolan’s T. Rex, the blues got its first pair of platforms since Little Richard. Uniting lust, fantasy, and the 12-bar shuffle within the slickest of production packages, Electric Warrior forged a teen-friendly sound that would long prosper as “glam.” Seeing U.S. chart action courtesy of the timeless “Get It On (Bang A Gong),” the album would serve more as an oracle from which rockers far and wide would glean chops and style. Bowie would make use of the sonic sheen; punk rockers would employ its musical primitivism; and ’80s hair bands would take Bolan’s glitzy persona as a model for performance excess.
