Limited six 180gm red, white, and blue colored vinyl LP set. Having risen to superstardom through 1971, 1972 saw Marc Bolan attain the heights of "T. Rexmania" or "T. Rextasy", as the press dubbed the frenzy that took over the UK's music scene.
This box set celebrates that year. For the first time, it brings together the 1972 studio recordings, broadcasts and performances made by Bolan and his band, T. Rex, putting the listener into the shoes of a T. Rex fan that year: singles, albums, live concerts, radio broadcasts, a film soundtrack and more.
