An impressive undertaking on the part of the compiler and it's interesting to see the compiler's take on pre-Glam and post-Glam. Maybe a bit of a missed opportunity though? A five-disc Glam box in which only two discs are dedicated to "Glam Proper" while the remaining three are dedicated to putting the other two in perspective - both historically and musically - strikes me as undercooking the concept.

As in all musical genres, some of the best Glam tracks were recorded by those who were has-beens or were-never-gonna-bes. I'd prefer at least one disc dedicated to the one-offs who tried to cash in on the craze, leaving behind a lone stellar 45 before shuffling off back into complete and total obscurity. Some of this so-called Junk Shop Glam has been issued on other compilations, most notably the three key RPM Glam Junk Shop compilations: Boobs ~ The Junkshop Glam Discotheque, Velvet Tinmine ~ 20 Junkshop Glam Ravers, and Glitterbest - 20 Pre Punk & Glam Terrace Stompers. Some of these artists, or perhaps those from local Glam scenes that exploded elsewhere in Europe, would have made for a more satisfying compilation, and a more accurate reflection of the genre.

I would have included Gary Glitter's "Rock n Roll Part 2" which was a seminal Glam record in terms of defining the Glam sound. Mike Leander and Glitter creating the sound through hours of painstaking manipulation of tape loops and drum patterns.

For me, there have always been two versions of Glam : the Glitter Pop of The Sweet, Gary Glitter and every pop star who ever wore bright clothes and slap while signing universally-applicable pop songs, and True Glam, the serious, arty, wider-culture referencing. more subjective and individualistic (hence Rock, not pop) work of Alice Cooper, David Bowie, The Stooges, Roxy Music and Cockney Rebel. It is this latter category that this box set arguably tries to capture some of the spirit of in some of the more vintage, tangential tracks on disc one (such as Coward and Brel). True Glam is always riddled with content that stems from the Modern Art (not contemporary art) and high culture that came out of Europe since the days of the decadents and symbolists, the same modern art that fled to New York when Hitler came knocking at its doors. Just one example of this is Roxy Music - the Weimar cabaret stylings of 'Bittersweet', chanson Romanticism of 'A Song For Europe' and the US pop-culture image consciousness of '2HB' are a handful of illustrations of this.

Unfortunately, this box set, while representing beautifully how Glitter Pop's sartorial excess and handful of musical indicators -descending chord sequences and crunchy tribal guitars and drums - spread across all musical subgenres of Pop in the 70s, even into disco (when the fact is that much of the Pop here has next to nothing in common with True Glam -which takes the Rock music of the counterculture and tears it into metallic, multi-coloured spattered violence, celebration of artifice and disdain for peace 'n' love) loses out by ignoring some very important figures.

This should not be entitled as GLAM- There are very few Glam artists on Here, No Glitter Band or Gary Glitter- This is not Glam but an insult to all who have followed or Grown up With the Glam Rock/Glitter era of the 70`s. Don`t recommend it to be brought If you are a True GLAM ROCK FAN. YUK! selection of songs.!!!!!!

The trouble is with this box set is not the music - 80% of which is of course, great. No - its with the dummy or dummies behind it doing the compiling. I mean, honestly, where do they get these people? how do they get the job? do they actually get paid for doing things like this?

trying to be clever including people like noel coward and anthony newley (the latter presumably because of his influence on bowie) is really pretty desperate and also very, very contrived. of course - he/they have to of course also include howling wolf cos its where bolan lifted a bit of 'jeepster' etc. But so what? does that mean howling wolf is one of the forefathers of glam rock? did howling wolf dress up in stacked boots and lip gloss whilst trawling through the mississippi delta? ho hum

Then theres the otheres. Nazareth? judas priest? what the hell do they have to do with the movement? at the other end of the spectrum, barry blue? the bay city rollers?? kenny??? do me a favour please

And the we come up to modern times and now theyre really getting desperate. Morrissey? goldfrapp?the fall??? words fail me.

By far the most inexcusable act in this mockery of an album however is THE EXCLUSION OF GARY GLITTER!!!!!! gary was the epitome of glam rock and made some CLASSIC records and to ostacize him from it like he didnt even exist is truly, truly PATHETIC - and by the way, to all you holier-than-thou sun readers who will no doubt defend this action let me ask you this - how come jerry lee lewis isnt ostracized for maryying his 13 year old cousin? or bill wyman for having a go at the 13 year old mandy smith?
