CD Reviews

Glam gem
10/04/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Spanning the Tyrannosarus Rex era and the explosion of T-rextacy with the stunning "Electric Warrior", this early compilation stands out as an absolute gemstone in the career of Marc Bolan.Originally released on vinyl in 1971,it has well endured the ravages of time. Tracks such as "By the light of a magical moon" & "She Was Born to be My Unicorn", are steeped in Celtic myth & Tolkein fantasy and see Bolan at the peak of latter day Tyrannosarus Rex. Our ears then get to hear the delightful halycon days of electric T-Rex, with "Get it On","Jeepster","Hot Love""
First Greatest Hits Collection
Thomas Magnum | NJ, USA | 07/16/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Bolan Boogie is the first greatest hits collection from T. Rex. Released just as T. Rextasy was sweeping England, the album shot up to number in the UK. The album includes the band's first glam rock hits like "Get It On", "Jeepster", "Ride A White Swan" and "Hot Love". But the set also contains the work of Tyrannersaurus Rex which was an early incarnation of T. Rex before discovering glam rock. The songs like "She Was Born To Be My Unicorn", "King Of The Mountain Cometh" and "Dove" are acoustic in nature and more in tune with Donovan than David Bowie. The album makes for a great contrast in listening as the band shifted styles and musical gears."
