All recorded just before the final sessions for The Slider and Tanx albums - under the watchful eye of Tony Visconti - these tracks all show a bit of history


T Rex is back. Well this great compilation through local Aussie Distributor, Possum Records, is anyway.

This collection has all of the greatest songs by T.Rex, such as Telegram Sam, 20th Century Boy, The Grover and more. Marc Bolan was a brilliant songwriter and these tunes are all timeless classics that any lover of music should have in their collection.

These songs are all well crafted tunes that have brilliant melodies and guitar riffs that are catchy and memorable. It is really surprising that more bands haven't done cover versions of these songs, as they have the longevity that makes them great tunes thirty years on.
