This is a stunning little compilation album on Demon's 'Crimson' label imprint. Demon of course, were responsible for the fantastic Edsel remastered re-issues of a few years back and they don't disappoint here either.
Fans will know all these tracks, but to have them collected together makes this an attractive collection and at this price, a must-buy. To those who aren't familiar, 'Rocks!' showcases the rockier side to the T Rex hit machine, with famous singles, b-sides and album cuts jostling for attention in a non-stop example of just why T Rex and Marc Bolan remain so musically influentual and, let's be honest, such damn good fun! To round off this little gem, the artwork features the famous photographs by Sukita from 1972 and the 8 page booklet contains an informative December 2000 essay by T Rextasy frontman Danielz.
