T.Rex - The Slider
(Edsel BLNBOX-500140 UK-12 SS 2000:-)

Strictly limited to 2000 copies (numbered 1 - 2000) Now remastered for the first time 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.

On the accompanying DVD, Tony Visconti recalls the making of the album in an exclusive new 105-minute interview with Bolan biographer Mark Paytress. The DVD also features TV footage including performances of Telegram Sam and Metal Guru from Top Of The Pops, ITV performance footage of Cadilac, Spaceball Ricochet and Telegram Sam, plus Marc s interview with Russell Harty from 1972. Rounding off the DVD is footage of Marc Bolan and Mickey Finn visiting EMI s pressing plant, a TV advert for The Slider and a US promotional film of Buick Mackane.

Tony Visconti has also written a special essay for the 48-page hardback coffee-table book included in the box, which also features a 6,000-word essay by Paytress, rare photos and reproductions of archive material. Also included in the set, which comes in a sturdy 12 x 12 box, is a 180g vinyl pressing of the original album, its two spin-off singles and a repro of the hugely collectable promo-only Chariot Choogle 45, all in facsimile T. Rex Wax Co paper sleeves.

Rounding off the package is a 40-page book of the sheet music for every song on the album, an A2 poster, sticker, plastic carrier bag, sew-on patch and facsimiles of an original Bolan fan club letter, membership card, rosette and concert ticket.
Trader Horne - Morning Way
(Janus JLS-3012 US-70 VG+ 350:-)

One of the most interesting one-shots of the early '70s, this duo featured Irish multi-instrumentalist Jackie McAuley, who was responsible for some of those great organ lines on Them's early records, and Judy Dyble, who sang on Fairport Convention's first album before being replaced by Sandy Denny in 1968.

Their sole LP contains nice British folk-rock with an Olde English, fairy-tale air, and will appeal to fans of the early work of Fairport Convention.

Original US pressing.
Traffic - Coloured Rain
(Island ILP-800 Swe-67 VG+ 375:-)

Though it ultimately must be considered an interim vehicle for singer/songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Steve Winwood, Traffic was a successful group that followed its own individual course through the rock music scene of the late '60s and early '70s.

Rare original 1967 Swedish-only album; on the pink Island label stereo LP.
Traffic - Last Exit
(Island ILPS-9097 UK-69 VG+ 700:-)

Though it ultimately must be considered an interim vehicle for singer/songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Steve Winwood, Traffic was a successful group that followed its own individual course through the rock music scene of the late '60s and early '70s.

When Traffic announced their breakup in '69, Island assembled this LP from cuts they'd recorded but not issued. An unexpected gem resulted, icluding "Just for You", "Feeling Good", "Withering Tree", "Blind Man" and more!

Original UK pressing on the 1st "Pink Island" label; both sleeve and vinyl are graded VG+
Traffic - Where the Eagle flies
(Island ILPS-9237 UK-74 VG+ 275:-)

Traffic's last album before their 1974 split takes the jazz-rock textures of THE LOW SPARK OF HIGH HEELED BOYS and SHOOT OUT AT THE FANTASY FACTORY to a logical conclusion. The songs here are more tightly structured than they had been on previous records, with only three of the seven tracks creeping over the six-minute mark. However, the band's interplay is more rhythmically loose than ever before.

Original UK pressing, complete with card lyric inner, textured picture sleeve.
Troggs - Cellophane
(Page One POLS-003 UK-67 VG+ 500:-)

The Troggs' third British LP is one of the more sought-after collector's items of the late 1960s. The group followed a more subdued, soft-rock folk-psychedelic path than they had on their earlier recordings, which wasn't necessarily a bad idea, as the hit single "Love Is All Around" proved.

Original UK STEREO pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded VG+.
