This CD was produced by serious Bolan fans for serious Bolan fans. What is presented is a nice mix of mid '77 work in progress and studio versions of some "Dandy" album songs. These mastertape quality tracks have superior clarity and though fully digital somehow retain a rich analog sound. If you are looking for new songs, greatest hits or a CD to play at parties then this is not it. But however if you wish to enter a time warp and sit behind the glass at these mellow recording sessions, get this CD pull up a chair and feel the love.

Though much of Marcs work from his final year is available thanks to the series of excellent T.REX Unchained releases this package puts these tracks into the context of an album. At last we know where Marc was going next and get at leats a hint of what the follow up to Dandy in the Underworld might have been like. Thanks to to the lady, an ex studio employee that kept these tapes safe over all those years, we have a glimpse of Marcs plans for future T.Rex. This disc contains both Marcs lyrical exploration of his recent past in a version of Dandy in the Underworld and a statement of intent, a manifesto for the new age of Bolan in Write me a Song. Perhaps a poppier direction as indicated in the Marc shows television series but true to Marcs vision of himself as a rock based pop performer. So though much of what is here is known to fans already The Final Cuts presents fresh takes, a clarity and sound quality not available before on even the most well known songs. We get a collection of nimble wordy rockers such as Hot George, lush balladry such as 20th Century Baby and a whole collection of glorious pop in Love & the Foxey Boy, Mellow Love and Shy Boy. T.Rex became the ultimate power pop band in 1977 and I can imagine him alongside the Buzzcocks and the Skids championing a whole new generation of artists in the followup series to Marc. So as the years fly past and another anniversary approaches just Keep a Little Marc in your Heart.

It was seven years ago when the Daily Mail published a two page spread on the discovery of these tapes and who would believe the final recording sessions Marc did would be hidden in an airing cupboard for nearly 30 years. (Fitting as they were recorded at Air Studios!) It's Doreen Bell we have to thank for saving these tapes, she worked at Air Studios in Oxford Street and after the fatal crash she visited Gloria in hospital where she wrote a message to Doreen (she couldn't speak as her pharynx was spilt) asking her to take the master tapes she and Marc had made and keep them safe saying she wanted Rolan to have them, so she hid them in her filing cabinet.

When she retired in 1985 she smuggled them to her flat in West London and then later took them to her retirement home in Weston Super-Mare. She wrote several times to Gloria asking what she should do with the tapes but never had the right address. It wasn't until she read an article about Rolan in the Daily Mail that finally she made contact with Marc's son through the newspaper. I never thought I'd say it but thank God for the tabloid press! Onto the tracks...

HOT GEORGE - One minute 47 seconds of pure Bolan boogie. At last we can hear the lyrics clearly 'Your body is a furnace - your love is a forge, so won't you tan your man - Hot George' sings Marc. Now Georgie was a female - as females go she moved fast like a jaguar - melting all life's snow'. Hot George was released as a single in 1980 with Andy Ellison on lead vocals along with Knox (the Vibrators) Paul Roland and Danielz.

LOVE & THE FOXEY BOY - Aside from the intro not too different from the version on Billy Super Duper, much better production here though.

CELEBRATE SUMMER - What sounds like a demo, a filler on this CD methinks.

A fantastic album,with some excellent insights into where Marc was taking the T.Rex sound. An absolute must for fans.
Some of these tracks (plus more besides) appeared on a vinyl album,on the Marc On Wax label, in the '80s, called "Billy Super Duper", if with a little more (some may say too much !) production than the "Billy" tracks on this CD.There have also been releases of some of these songs (although I assume recorded at different sessions) on the Unchained series.
This is a marvellous CD & some of the songs,would, I am sure have been propelling Marc back into the charts.
It's one marvellous collection & just goes to show how well Marc had turned the corner, after a couple of years of being so prematurely written off. As I say, a must for all fans of Marc & his music & one in the eye for those cynical critics, who seemes to revel in slating Marc & underplaying his influence on those bands that followed on(how wrong they are)

An employee at Air Studios had rescued and preserved master tapes of Marc Bolan's final recordings before they were shut down. They were later presented to Roland and Gloria, who in turn made them available for this release.
The songs featured are stripped down demos which Marc and Gloria did with other musicians(who were at that time T.Rex) between October '76 and April '77 in Air Studios and Decibel studios.
As a result we have versions of songs from Bolan's final album("Dandy In The Underworld", "Crimson Moon"), his final single "Celebrate Summer", "Write Me A Song"(better known as "Sing Me A Song", the theme from his TV series)and two versions of the Teddy Bears cover "To Know You Is To Love You", all of which make interesting listening.
However the highlights are the seven never before released tracks which could have been the direction Bolan was taking before his untimely tragic death.
The musicians are not credited though Dino Dines' Keyboards play a large part, especially his Hammond organ riffs that combine beautifully with Bolan's Guitar power chords giving it a defining sound!
"Hot George" boasts a solid Keyboard riff and has a Punk energy which drives the Bolan catchiness that made his songs so special! "Love and the Foxy Boy" is a laid back Pop song based on 3 chords until a unique chord emerges, sending the song into another dimension!
"Love Drunk" is a slowie and a superb Marc Bolan ballad. "Mellow Love" (2 versions are featured) is another slow Pop song oozing with Bolan's catchiness(which takes you back to the hit singles at the height of his fame). "Shy Boy" is a medium slice of Pop the way Pop should be, the vocals bouncing off a keyboard riff! "20th Century Baby" is a beautiful ballad with touching lyrics. Very Accoustic.
