T.Rex’s definitive Glam Rock album from 1971 was produced by Tony Visconti and has now been Half Speed Mastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios, London.

Contains the singles “Get It On” ( #1 in the UK in July 1971), “Jeepster” ( #2 in the UK in November ‘71).

Pressed on 180gram vinyl and housed in a sleeve with an Abbey Road Obi and Abbey Road Certificate.

At once sardonic, flamboyant, and trashy, T. Rex's 1971 masterpiece Electric Warrior catapulted leader Marc Bolan to stardom, triggered an ongoing fascination with glam rock, and launched a movement that soon involved David Bowie, Roxy Music, Mott the Hoople, and more. Yet none of those namesake artists ever released a record that out-glammed, out-innuendoed, out-thrusted, or out-camped Electric Warrior. Bursting with excessive fun and unchecked libido, T. Rex's catchy boogies, shuffles, and vamps scoot by on a seemingly impossible blend of concise hooks, non-sequitur fantasies, and theatrical swagger. From the chart-topping "Bang a Gong (Get It On)" to the beautiful "Life's a Gas," the R&B-stoked hit "Jeepster" to the pout of "Motivator" and galactic soul of "Planet Queen," Bolan, percussionist Mickey Finn, and boards manipulator Tony Visconti craft a rewardingly strange, parallel universe of sound, style, and sex that still has no equal.
