Essential Collection. Rmst ed. Import, Remastered. Audio CD, Import, Original recording remastered, September 23, 2002. if youve ever had a glam moment in your drab life then this collection is just your ticket back. One person found this helpful.

Bypassing all of Bolan's earlier folk work, the set has no cohesion - it's just a bunch of tracks piled together haphazardly. Jeepster," not "Bang a Gong (Get It On)," is the only track from Electric Warrior to make the box, leaving their best record woefully underrepresented; instead, the box concentrates on the spottier records from the mid-'70s. Ultimately, The Essential Collection does a disservice to T. Rex. Track Listing - Disc 1. Title/Composer.

July 31, 2014 by Paul Sinclairtags: 1970s, marc bolan, t-rex. Edsel Records will issue a T. Rex box set collecting their studio albums later this year. Details are sketchy but The Album Collection will be a 10CD box and there is a good chance this will be packaged similar to the Suede CD box from earlier this year, or the Leo Sayer set from 2013.
