About this release

Exclusive to orders of the 4CD and 5LP on the Official T.REX store, each comes with an A4 print of Tony Visconti’s original score for ‘Whatever Happened To The Teenage Dream’.

This instalment in the acclaimed ‘Year’ series of the works of Marc Bolan and T. Rex takes in a period of change during which Bolan was very active in recording studios in the US and Europe.

This 5LP set includes the “Tanx” and “Zinc Alloy” albums, and the non-album hit singles and their B-sides. LP4 features demos and outtakes from both albums, whilst LP5 focuses on Bolan’s forays into soul music, including highlights of the abandoned album he wrote and produced for Sister Pat Hall.

The singles included are Children Of The Revolution, Solid Gold Easy Action, 20th Century Boy, The Groover, Truck On (Tyke) and Teenage Dream.

The 12×12 booklet contains a brand new 16,000 word essay by acknowledged Bolan authority Mark Paytress (author of the definitive Bolan biography), detailing Bolan’s life through this eventful period. Also featured are many previously unpublished photos taken by Keith Morris in the course of 1973, as well as ephemera from the era.
