I wanted the remastered version for my IPOD and I wanted a decent vinyl copy for my collection. This ticked all the boxes. There is a card in the box with the web address to download the mp3 version. Once received I immediately downloaded and simply added to my Itunes library by playing a bit of each track. The remastered version sounds great, so clear. There are things going on in there I was not aware of. I also have an immaculate vinyl copy to look at while I listen (as I always had in the 70's). Wish I could do this with all the music I buy these days.

5.0 out of 5 stars He danced his way out of the womb 27 Jan 2010
By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Marc the man, marc the demi god, he strutted and he preened into the 70's with the panache of a white Little Richard. Whilst the Zeus of the 20th C connected to an intense orgasmic rush, Marc introduced tease to his audience. The music shifts to a sleeze of a beat that had the young women of the early 70's entering a male bisexual planet where the past was rock and roll and the future was forever bright. The perfect antidote to the unrest and civil strife that marked the the 70's. Marc danced to his own cosmic beat, a teeny bop idol cast adrift as he sold his rock and roll to mammon, bereft when his fickle fans deserted him for ersatz and chintz. In 77 Marc became "punk".

I never appreciated Marc at the time. He was the teeny boppers idol, something your younger sister might be into and in the macho world of the 70's saying you like Marc Bolan would induce a boot between the legs so you could check your own manhood. David Bowie was acceptable for some reason but MArc was off limits. Slade were the mans band I remember having the badges. No one would question anyone's sexuality with a picture of Dave Hill in a tightfitting jumpsuit with his buck teeth, mascara coated eyes and lipstick pout staring from your lapel.

As per usual a friend turned me onto Marc. He was a big fan and dragged me to a convention where we watched Born to Boogie. After the experience I began to see what he was exploring, the purrr of a lovely white sleek slickbacked 70's sportcar with legs astride a Gibson Les Paul thrusting his sweat stained body into the collective memories of everyone who remembers the 70's. Marc sang at length about cars and sex, almost predicting his own demise.

This album is one of the best, a lost magical world which disappeared when punk erased the daydream and exposed the reality. Acid House and Hip Hop never ventured near planet Marc. This album is a beam of light from another time and another place, I am a convert and I ask you to let it in.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is T.Rex! 6 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
Marc Bolan,Mickey Finn,Steve Currie and Bill Legend,this is the ultimate 'Rex C.D. to buy,from 1967 'till 1977..Marc and his mate/s..gradually went from strength to strength..the follow up to this waas 'TANX'..also a top album..but the real top Two are 'Electric Warrior' 1971 and this 'The Slider'..T.rextasy!!...for hard core fans don't forget Marc's early accoustic partner 'Steve Took'that played major part in the early sound and the first Three L.P.s...From the single 'Debora' 1967 until the L.P. 'Dandy in the underworld' 1977.. the man was a funky sounding genius!
My all time fave track has to be 'Telegram Sam'1972. Please note that the four C.D. Hard back booklet '20th Century Supertar' is also available..perfect!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all time favourite albums! 6 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
The first time I ever saw T.Rex was on Top of the Pops and they were singing Telegram Sam. The following Saturday I rushed out and spent my pocket money on that single. My copy has gone grey - its been played that often. As soon as The Slider came out I bought it. I love it and all these years later it still sounds like it could have been recorded today. Bolan was light years ahead of his time! All the tracks are great - I suppose my favourite track is Ball rooms of Mars. What a title for a song!
I recently bought Electric Warrior on SACD - its mixed by Visconti in 5.1. I wish that Visconti and crew would remix all the albums on T.Rex Hot Wax in 5.1 - that would be truely awsome!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb remaster of a classic T.Rex album 5 Aug 2013
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
By 1972, Marc Bolan was a star. And he knew it too. Fronting his band T.Rex, he would beam at the tv cameras, winking, waving and poking his tongue out as they performed their latest hit.
The previous year had seen the beginnings of what was to be dubbed 'T.Rextasy' with the release of 'Electric Warrior', a majestic artful, groovy and fey record. Own that and 'The Slider' and you've a taste of T.Rex in its pomp.
This release is highly recommended for both music and vinyl fans. The vinyl is heavy and thick and the artwork is minimal and classy, replicating the original release.
And what a sound Tony Visconti has awoken in the recordings. Instruments have an amazing clarity, its like hearing the original with an amazing top and bottom end. The kick drum on Bill Legend's drums is like hearing his drums in a different light. There's a real power to the songs, but the vitality is bristling too. You can almost touch the sound. Thank you Sir Tony of Visconti. I doff my cap to thee.
The final cherry on the cake is the vinyl comes with a card inside, with a code, where you can download this remaster in MP3 format (320kbs), allowing you to have digital and vinyl pleasure as you see fit. A brilliant idea.
Only downside was that my vinyl was dusty and had fingermarks all over it. More glove use in the warehouse please.
