Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
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.

I WALKED A TEN MILE ROUND TRIP WITH JUST ENOUGH MONEY ON THE DAY THIS CAME OUT AND I HAVE CHERISHED IT EVER SINCE. THE PINACLE OF MARC'S CAREER ALONG WITH ELECTRIC WARRIOR A FABULOUS ALBUM WITH NO FILLERS, A CRACKING TIMELESS IMAGE ON THE COVER AND A SOUND STILL AS FRESH AS EVER. PLEASE BUY IT IF YOU DON'T OWN IT AND BUY IT AGAIN IF YOU DO.

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!

Format: Audio CD
Having had their appetites whetted in May 1972 with the compilation album on Fly Records "Bolan Boogie" (which hit Number 1) – by July 1972 the wait was over. And on the 23rd of the month T.Rex and Marc Bolan fans got what they wanted - "The Slider" album hit the record shops and burnt its way into UK consciousness. Even now in 2014 (42 years later) it still gives me a thrill just to look at it (the same applies to "Electric Warrior" from 1971). And this stunning May 2002 2CD DELUXE EDITION from Edsel (reissued in 2014) gives me the same tingles. Here are the Golden Nose Slim and Jungle Face Jakes…

Originally released May 2002 - Edsel MEDCD 715 is a 2CD set (use Barcode 740155171520 to get the right issue) and breaks down as follows:

Disc 1 (53:54 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 13 are the album "The Slider" – originally released on vinyl in the UK on 23 July 1972 on EMI BLN 5001
Tracks 14, 15 and 16 are Extended Play – "Cadillac" (14) is a non-album track - it was one of the B-sides to "Telegram Sam" (January 1972 on EMI/T.Rex Wax Co. Label T-REX 101). The other B-side was album track "Baby Strange". "Thunderwing" and "Lady" (15 and 16) were both non-album track B-sides to the UK 7” single of "Metal Guru" (May 1972 on EMI/T.Rex Wax Co. Label MARC 1).

Disc 2 (53:00 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 13 are "The Alternate Slider ("Rabbit Fighter")" – alternate versions of almost every track with similar sounding tracks where alternates could not be found (the initial album title was going to be "Rabbit Fighter").

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!!!

"Metal guru" was the song back in the 70's that inspired a lot of bands of the 80's.

I was totally overwhelmed by this song, although it wasn't a hit in my native country (Holland) Marc never liked to come to Holland, because the press didn't seem to like his music. (They only liked his acoustic material)

"Electric Warrior" may have given Marc and T. Rex a lot of success, it still reminds a lot to the old Tyrannosaurus Rex. On "The Slider" that feeling is gone: it is totally glam rock ! On this CD there are also some B-sides of the singles, like the hilarious "Lady". This album is a pop standard. Although there were lots of glamrock acts in the 70's, like Sweet, Gary Glitter, etc. etc., they cannot compare with the Bolansound of T. Rex. Lots of punkrock and newwave bands and 80's bands like Duran Duran were inspired by T. Rex.

Tony Visconti is responsible for the very clear sound on this album. And don't forget the "Turtles" Flo & Eddie for their background vocals. The follow up LP was a real album when it was released on vinyl ! It didn't contain any singles ! The song "Rapids" from that album is my all-time favourite song from Marc.

The Slider and Tanx are a must for music lovers.
