Product Description:

This 2 CD set contains 44 tracks.
Includes liner notes by Mark Paytress.
T. Rex: Marc Bolan (vocals, guitar); Gloria Jones (keyboards, background vocals); Steve Currie (bass guitar); Bill Legend (drums); Mickey Finn (congas).
Additional personnel: Sister Pat Hall (background vocals); Danny Thompson , Lonnie Jordan, B.J. Cole, Jack Green.
Featuring the same songs as the two-disc GREATEST HITS: 1972-1977, this T. Rex collection performs the service of arranging the tracks in chronological order, whereas the former set divides the CDs up into A-sides and B-sides. While it's up to listeners to decide which approach works best, the WAX CO. SINGLES compilation does place British glam icon Marc Bolan's work in a better historical context, fully displaying his artistic progression during these key years in his career.
Beginning with the swaggering "Telegram Sam," this offering charts T. Rex's wonderfully decadent glam journey, stopping off at lesser-known tracks such as the metal-tinged "Midnight," which showcases Bolan's blistering lead-guitar lines, and the aptly titled, Eastern-influenced "Chrome Sitar." Though the A-sides are still the main attraction, as revealed by the gleefully sleazy "Solid Gold Easy Action" and the fiercely stomping "20th Century Boy," the B-sides more than than carry their weight, making this one of the finest T. Rex compilations available.
