(3 out of 5 stars)

"When this was first issued on vinyl in the early eighties it was a must-have item. Unfortunately, this release has been superseded by "A BBC History" (credited to Tyrannosaurus Rex and T Rex), which is not only more complete, but has far more accurate sleeve notes. For example, according to Across the Airwaves, Hot Love was first performed by Tyrannosaurus Rex in 1969.Musically, it's excellent, with the earlier tracks offering more than the later ones. Of particular interest are Misty Mist and Scenescof, which actually come from the audition tape that got Tyrannosaurus Rex on the radio in the first place. Sailors of the Highway also gets its first official release here: this is rumoured to have been slated for single release, but the song was shelved.My advice is to forget this album and get "A BBC History". "The BBC Recordings 1970-76" includes more T Rex material but omits the Tyrannosaurus Rex tracks."
