Who'd have thought back in 1972 that The Slider would be released in this quite exceptional box set? I owned the album on vinyl then various CD's but this re-mastered version is the best of all. The additional tracks and DVD performances may not be new to dedicated fans but I have to highlight Buick Mackane 2 (previously released as Buick Mackane & The Babe Shadow). It's an amazing slice of Bolan Boogie which is as good as any song on the album. However, it sounds even more amazing on this release.
I love the book which is identical to the LP cover in format and size. In addition to the text if features numerous reproduction articles, adverts etc from 1972. Priceless memories for Bolan fans. The LP is exceptional quality featuring heavy grade vinyl and the three singles are great collector's items. There are loads of other collectables in the box which are listed on various websites but they also include a Slider bag and a couple of frameable photos.
I thought the Electric Warrior box set was superb but this beats it hands down. Now, how about a 40th Anniversary version of TANX for 2013?
