5.0 out of 5 stars Not so Futuristic, 19 Nov 2005
The deceptive title of this album aludes to a concept album.It is with great wisdom that it was never to be a concept.It is merely the gold galatic raver giving us a handful of well constructed and well produced studio gems.Master of the instant song.Stand out tracks are All alone, My little Baby, New York City sees Marc in New York with the line(Did you ever see a woman coming out of New York City with a frog in her hand)The wonderful backing vocals of Gloria Jones ad to the atmosphere of this album.The extended play of Disc 1includes the disappionting single London Boys and the Marc gem Laser Love with a great guitar riff no doubt stolen from a Hendrix record.The bonus Disc 2 is works in progress and out takes Do buy it and wonder in amazment at the master of Bolan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tanxs for the memory, 19 Nov 2005
This review is from: Tanx (Audio CD)
From the opening of Tenament Lady to the closing bars of Left hand Luke ,Marc takes us on a rock and roll journey.On Country Honey Bolan grooves as much as ever,He blows us away on Shock Rock.Marc is smooth in his groove on The Street and Babe Shadow.The extended play acts as a bonus and includes 20th Centrury boy a Bolan classic and the much slated Solid Gold Easy Action.The bonus disc sees the master at work in a series of out-takes and works in progress.This is not for the faint hearted but, 4 the Children of the Revolution.Listen if u dare.

3.0 out of 5 stars MARC BOLAN A 1970S LATE RETROSPECTIVE, 19 Nov 2005
The album title is to say the least misleading.This is a good package generally but, by no means an introduction to Marc bolan.The true introduction lies in the main with the begining of doves.An introduction to TRex see Electric Warrior.This a a overview of the later T Rex .Worth a listen in the main.

5.0 out of 5 stars GOD SO LOVED TO BOOGIE THAT HE GAVE SLIDER, 13 Nov 2005
This review is from: The Slider: Remastered (Audio CD)
You thought that electric warrior was the bees knees then comes The Slider.A piece of cosmic rock heaven with a hard line boogie beat.Groove with Telegram Sam and glide away in the Ballroom of Mars.Head bang on a chariot and freak with Buick.No moment or stone forsaken a solid Bolan gem and a classic as ever from the gold galactic raver.BUY IT OR MISS OUT PURE MAGIC.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fun but could live without, 12 Nov 2005
This review is from: Bolan Boogie (Audio CD)
This early 1970s compilation is far from representative or needed.It was better left as a never ever to re-released.Fans 4get it everyone else make for the hills.There are many better releases.This was just a cash in at the time.Do buy MARC BOLAN 20TH CENTURY SUPERSTAR

5.0 out of 5 stars early doctored recordings known as Scare me to death..., 12 Nov 2005
This review is from: You Scare Me to Death (Audio CD)
The Simon Napier-bell recordings of 1966-67 are doctored and updated soon after Marcs death in1977. Napier-Bell certainly achieved some of the most well structure add ons updates to songs then some 10 years old.Today they stand the test of time and are more sympathetic to 1960s bolan rather then electric T.Rex , 4 me he scores highlyon this .Bolans sonbgs have been of late updated but not with the sympathy needed but made now.Not to sure about that.Do also listen to the preistoric Marc Bolan there the songs are stripped bare.It is nice to compare the treatment of the songs.I APPAULED YOU SIMON -NAPIER-BELL A MASTER STROKE OF PRODUCTION AND INTERPRETATION..RIDE ON..

5.0 out of 5 stars End of a era....TOTALLY UNDERATED......, 12 Nov 2005
This was in 1977 to be the last official Marc Bolan album.Thostotally underatedmasterpiece saw Marc Bolan return to form .The public were listening in greater numbers as before.Marc was loving The Godfather of Punk tag.Interviews, his own cloums and TV shows saw the master of self promotion up and at us.This album is not just 4 fans but, for all the children of pop...
