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. Perfect!
What a fantastic bargain. The best £3.02 i have ever spent. 24 great tracks all remastered on one collection covering the entire 70's . A must for fans and especially as an intro to this Glamtastic band.
t.rex what a title for an album "T.REX rocks" and i couldn't agree anymore marc bolan and t.rex rocked the socks off any teenager with ears in the early seventies they made accessible glam rock music for anybody to enjoy with spacey lyrics distorted guitars "20 century boy" has one of the best intro's ever... and my favorite "born to boogie" a little ditty enjoyable as smelly roses and all there other hits are here plus a few suprises as "baby strange" "mad donna" "midnight" the corkscrew haired glammer lives on..through his fans plus marc made some damn good vibes that are being copied today but nobody does it better than BOLAN the king of glam rock
