The Slider

Regular price £25.99

Remastered by Tony Visconti, this classic album - released in July 1972 on the back of three chart-topping T.Rex lps - provides a perfect snapshot of the era the press dubbed 'T Rextasy' and is proof of Bolan's extraordinary and enduring appeal across the generations. The Slider contained two UK number 1 hit singles, Telegram Sam and Metal Guru - the latter famously regarded by Morrissey as 'pop perfection'. It was the first to bear the T Rex wax co imprint, a seal of approval from EMI records, who felt Bolan sufficiently important to warrant having his own record label.
