Same old thing re issued to death
on 28 November 2010
I have been a fan from the early 70's, in the nineties I started to appreciate Bolan's early work, and now I'm sick and tired of re issue after re issue. Yes some of the tracks I haven't heard before, particularly Truck on Tyke recorded in '71, but other than that I think I have all the other versions in some form or another. I say that as most of these tracks have been re issued to death some with very subtle changes, but I still bought it, more full I. So I would say if you are starting out as a Bolan fan buy the studio versions, then as you progress seek this out as it does show the talent which Bolan surrounded himself with. The band was rediculed in the '70s but Steve Bill and Marc are terrific musicians, then add Rick Wakeman,and Steve Took, then you have a great mix. Best tracks on the CD Hot Love, Cadilac, Metal Guru Truck on Tyke, Life's a Gas, and Woodland Rock.
