Glam-rock god Marc Bolan put T. Rex on the rock-&-roll map in the 1970s with such classics as Jeepster and Telegram Sam, but this collection of their BBC recordings paints a picture of a group in transition

Rex sound is electrified and toughened up on the '70s tracks, until it reaches the classic glam-rock sound of the ELECTRIC WARRIOR era. No one ever sounded quite like T. Rex in any phase of their work, and THE BEST OF THE BBC RECORDINGS offers a unique glimpse into their artistic growth. 1 Top Gear Jingle Marc Bolan & . ex 0:11. 2 Beltane Walk Marc Bolan & T.

His initial success was unquestionably down to the close friendship he had forged with John Peel, who had Bolan on his show on countless occasions recording sessions, reading poetry, even singing Christmas carols. On his last Radio London show before the station was shut down Peel played no less than six Bolan recordings
