The 'Electric Warrior Sessions' from Marc Bolan and T-Rex offers over fifty minutes of raw nuggets from the studio work that produced the glam-rocker's most heralded album. Bolan was noted for not spending much time in the studio polishing his compositions, prefering instead to seek the intensity only fresh performances can claim. So there probably wasn't a lot of editing floor material available, and a glance at the set list for this disc would seem to support that notion. Only five of the eleven songs from the finished, 1971 vinyl release are featured in out-takes or alternates here, so there is a significant departure between the two bodies of work.

Among the tracks from 'Electric Warrior' are two alternate versions of Bolan's biggest hit, 'Get It On', which soared to number ten nationally when it was marketed as 'Bang a Gong' in January of 1972. The first version is a finished version, featuring all the bells and whistles (and the tasty sax solo, rumored to be performed by David Bowie, as well as background vocals, rumored to be performed by Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman, the Flo & Eddie who founded The Turtles), while the closing track is completely stripped down to Marc's vocals and the rhythm section. It's 'Get It On' as it would sound if Bolan were in a four-piece teen garage band! Two extremes to be sure, but I believe any version of this remarkable track would be entertaining in its own right, and these two certainly are. Got any more laying around? Among the other covers of 'Electric Warrior' tracks are versions of the airy and beautiful 'Cosmic Dancer' and 'Life's a Gas'. 'Monolith' shows up twice, but both versions are weaker tracks. The song itself is a bit of a drag, and since it shows up twice it's dragging both feet.

I first heard this when my college roommate played an old beat up tape on our jerry-rigged stereo. I'm not a fan of 70s music, but this one is an exception. It's simple, groovin' music that is perfect to chill out to. By the way, I'm a metal fan, so if you are too, check this one out!
