July 2022 marked the 50th anniversary of the release of T. Rex's most celebrated album, "The Slider". Produced by Tony Visconti, "The Slider" remains the definitive soundtrack to Bolanmania, containing two Number 1 singles, 'Telegram Sam', and 'Metal Guru', perhaps the epitome of glam rock flamboyance. In this special 2CD set, CD1 features the original album, accompanied by three non-album b-sides. CD2 contains "The Alternate Slider: Rabbit Fighter", a bonus disc of fascinating 'work-in-progress' versions and demos, which (as far as possible) mirrors the original album's running order. The CDs are presented in a brand-new seven-inch deluxe gatefold packaging, with an 8-page booklet, including the lyrics, plus annotation by acknowledged Bolan authority Mark Paytress, author of the definitive Bolan biography, and 2022's "Glam!: When Superstars Rocked the World, 1970-74".
