Product Description

Product Description

* Between 1994 and 1996, Edsel released eight full-length CDs of Marc Bolan's previously unreleased demos, alternate
takes, unused and abandoned songs, and unfinished recordings. These CDs were deleted in 2001.

* Since then, copies of the rare original individual releases have changed hands for foolish amounts of money, and sellers on Ebay have offered to pirate the entire set!

* Edsel is now proud to announce the re-issue of all 8 CDs in a limited edition bound book set, with extensive brand new annotation by Mojo writer Mark Paytress, author of the acknowledged definitive Bolan biography "Bolan: The Rise and Fall of a 20th Century Superstar".

3.0 out of 5 stars Songs that never made the cut! 2 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Marc Bolan has been my Main Man for 40 years and I have all his "stuff" many times over. This collection is what amounts to what was left on the "cutting room floor". Interesting as it is to the hard core Bolanites much of it will be lost on the more general listener.

There are a few songs which perhaps should've been further developed and formally released at the time with Mr. Motion and Down Home Lady being personal favourites.

This is a very interesting collection but is not a good entry level to Marc Bolan / T.Rex.

I absolutely love T.Rex!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope this helps!!

By Stephen Lloyd VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
So says the very marvelous Mark Paytress, author of the seminal Bolan biography and the liner notes to this mammoth 8 disc collection.
Paytress should be given a knighthood for his work on behalf of the Bolan cause. His intelligent, insightful and objective writings on Bolan have done much to give credence to this largely undervalued and maligned artist. Paytress knows his Bolan and his work on the man is truly enticing. It is, in fact, one of the main reasons that I bought this collection.

The music on these discs consists, for the most part, of rough and unfinished demos. Quality varies throughout the discs but it's generally good. However, if you're expecting hi-fi Sonics then prepare to be disappointed. But oh the actual music!! What beauty there is to be found within! Seriously, if you're serious about Bolan then you need this box set in your life. Discs 1 and 2 are truly essential loads of bluesy guitar work outs and Dylan/Kerouac wordplay. Later discs are less consistent but there's still enough goodness within to warrant a lengthy playlist for the iPod.

I love this collection because much of the music is new to me (having previously only owned `the best' of unchained) and I have always favored the minimal sounds of Bolan's delicious warblings and acoustic guitar.

At the time of this review this box set is shockingly cheap. Surely no further incentive is required to promote investment in this trove of Bolan delights!

4.0 out of 5 stars Marc Bolan T. Rex Unchained 5 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD
Great to hear material that has never been released before. Some of it is demo some outtakes and alternative versions. This CD package is well worth the money to any Marc Bolan fan. The recording quality can vary but it's 8 CD's of pure joy.Unchained: Unreleased Recordings 1972 - 1977
