5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST T-REX "GREATEST HITS" AROUND 25 July 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A collection with a suitable name. There are loads of T-Rex compilations around, but this is the only one available now that manages to include all the hits from Bolan and T-Rex's entire career, spanning from the days of Tyrannosaurus Rex to Bolan's untimely death in 1977.
Emphasis is wisely put on the 1970-73 period, which was Bolan's artistic and commercial peak, and all the hits are included: Hot Love, Get It On, Metal Guru, Children of the Revolution, 20th Century Boy etc.
This serves as a good introduction to T-Rex, even if it would have been more satisfying with a double CD with a few more album tracks.
However, if you buy one Bolan album, this is a very good option.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic for T Rex fans.. and more 18 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
T Rex are a band from my youth. Imagine my surprise when I put this on in the car and the kids started singing along.
How could they have even heard of Marc Bolan. Then it hit me.... Just how many of these
great songs are used in adverts or as background music in films and TV programmes.
Great album... a must for any Bolan or T Rex fans.. old and young.

Ater growing up with a mother who was a T-Rex fan and madly in love with Marc Bolan,it was pretty obvious that I was going to be the same. The Essential Collection has a varied content which will cater for all Marc Bolan fans.From songs like The Groover to classics such as Get it On,Jeepster and Hot Love. I sat and listened with a smile on my face thinking of my mad mother who still even now adores Marc Bolan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great T Rex Compilation 15 Dec 2010
By Rob
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I originally bought the "Ultimate Collection" hits compilation by Marc Bolan and T. Rex (containing Soul Of My Suit and Plateau Skull) which is still available, but when that CD got damaged I bought this one instead because I find it more consistent and enjoyable to listen to. The track listing is much the same, but in a different and more listenable order and, for me, the sound is better. Plus a more arresting CD cover! This CD has more of his early work and includes the original version of Debora, thus we have a potent mix of the unique Bolan vocals on folky hippy rock, pop rock, glam rock, hard rock and even disco!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect condition 21 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD
Very pleased with this item. I was a little wary of ordering as it is used but the disc itself is perfect, a small scratch on the case but that's all. I would be happy to order from this seller again.
