About this release

If he were alive today Marc Bolan could fill the post of headmaster at the celluloid School Of Rock. Iconic from head to toe, Bolan’s glam image, on-stage theatrics and blistering pop songs helped soundtrack the first half of the 1970s and have inspired many ever since. Rarely less than vital, unlike most of his contemporaries he even harnessed respect from young punks, as the tastes of the decade mutated and his late 70s TV show ‘Marc’ became essential after school viewing. Children Of The Revolution celebrates the magnificence of the man. “I ain’t no square with my corkscrew hair” indeed.

Features 45 classic and collectable tracks drawn from
Marc Bolan’s entire career. Boasts 9 top 30 hits including 4 top 5’s. Compilation and sleevenotes by former Blow Monkey Dr Robert, who like Bolan is no stranger to eye make-up, throwing shapes and the allure of a pink feather boa.
