The Essential Starter to T.Rex,
This review is from: The Essential Collection: 25th Anniversary Edition (Audio CD)
There are a number of T.Rex great hits album’s but if you are new to T.Rex then this is the one to go for. The T.Rex catalogue is so vast that no single CD release can do full justice to Bolan’s work and this CD is no exception. It has most of the hits including Get it On, Ride A white Swan, Telegram Sam and I Love to Boogie. While it contains the Children of the Revolution used in the recent 3g advert (and Moulin Rouge) it misses out of Celebrate Summer which was not a hit 1st time around but has seen a revival with its use in the summer Woolworth’s advertising campaign. It also misses out on Soul of my Suit his last hit from 1977. This CD has entered the charts on a number of occasions over the past few years. If you can grab the one which includes a DVD of some of Marcs’ last performances, not his best as it is confined to a television studio. Ideally this should have been a double CD release to do justice but for starters it will give you an insight then after this buy Electric Warrior.
