I am not a huge fan of T-Rex, however I do like most of their best songs, well who doesn't?
I bought these two CD's however without really looking at the track listing (yes my mistake I know), anyway now that i've got them i'm really disappointed to see that quite a few of the songs I wanted are missing. For example, where is Get It On and Ride a White Swan?
These two CD's have got over 40 tracks, yet for some reason they are missing two of the bands best songs.
From looking on Amazon, there is another T-Rex best of album available that does have these songs on it. As such my advice to you is to buy that one instead.

This can never be titled the best of T.REX as it only covers his 72-77 EMI releases, and thefore missis out on the 7-71 hits of Get it On, Hot Love, Jeepster, Debora having said that you do get Telegram Sam before its recent remix for a beer commercial, Children of the Revolution and a whole host of other hits. What it does allow is the room for looking at a number of classic cuts from the 72-77 albums and even some like Christmas Bop which were not released until after his untimely death. Its minus 1 star for missing out on some of his earlier hits butand great value at £9.99
