140gm Classic Black Vinyl Import

Double vinyl LP pressing. This is a vinyl-only, intimate series that focuses on the private and creative Marc Bolan, with an emphasis on how that affected his songwriting. The second of these new releases is 1971, which takes us to the year in which T. Rex became a chart-topping phenomenon. This 19-track selection includes full-length versions of the hits "Hot Love" and "Get It On", along with the single version of "Jeepster". But also included are many other recordings from 1971: B-sides, working versions of "Telegram Sam" and "Life's A Gas", and demos like the 15-minute Complete Acoustic Demo of "Children Of Rarn". 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"
