Like any other writer Marc Bolan shelved many songs along the way, sometimes returning to them in later years, but often taking them no further than the confines of his private musical library. This ranged in content from the most rudimentary acoustic jottings, Dylanesque ramblings and vague ideas for concept albums, to fullbodied gospel, romantic ballads, hairy guitar work-outs and T.Rexcessive band sessions.
Here we present the best of his "work in progress" from 1972 until his death in 1977. Both discs are arranged chronologically, the first being dedicated to his home demos, whilst the second features the songs he took to the studio to work on with the band.
In common with our re-issue series of Bolan’s T. Rex Wax Co albums last year, this mid-price 2 CD set is
beautifully packaged in a digipak, featuring Bolan’s own demo cassettes as a cover motif. The package also includes a 16 page full colour booklet with extensive annotation by Bolan expert Martin Barden.
