4.0 out of 5 stars Almost everything March 21, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First, this is almost every single after "Electric Warrior" on. Great to have all the singles in chronological order. Great sound also. The material starts to drag a little during the second disc, but by the end of that disc and you hear "Dandy....." and "Celebrate Summer" you know Bolan was back on track. Makes me wonder what he might have done had he not been killed in that damn car accident. This is almost everything. One single was left off, I believe it's "Christmas Bop", a seasonal record. Would have made this complete, but that is just a very small omission for a set that is this good. A nice compliment to the regular albums, that include some but not all the singles as bonus tracks. If you like T. Rex this is a winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music by the Best! August 2, 2008
Format:Audio CD
What can I say about T-Rex and especially about Marc Bolan that has not been said or written before. Marc at his best! This one is a great addition for the yanks that don't know anything about Marc and his music except "Bang a Gong" or as released in the UK "Get It On". I am no real fan of Gloria Jones and there are a couple songs that she is singing back up...needless to say, I will listen to because I still love the music. Marc was a true loss in the world of music and poetry!

Although it doesn't contain his first four monster hits as T. Rex - "Ride A White Swan" (Oct 1970), "Hot Love" (February 1971), "Get It On" (July 1971) and "Jeepster" (November 1971) - this stunning 2CD set on England's Edsel MEDCD 714 (Barcode 740155171421) gives us everything afterwards and is a fantastic listen for it.

"A's and B's 1972 - 1977" does exactly what it says on the tin – providing you with all those EMI/T.Rex Wax Co Label UK 7" singles we bought in those distinctive T.Rex label bags (it stills gives me a kick to look at them to this day). Here's a detailed breakdown of the Metal Gurus and 20th Century Boys:

Disc 1 (69:56 minutes):
1. Telegram Sam b/w Cadillac and Baby Strange - January 1972, EMI/T.Rex Wax Co. Label T-REX 101

3. Children Of The Revolution b/w Jitterbug Love and Sunken Rags – September 1972. EMI/T.Rex Wax Co. Label MARC 2
4. Solid Gold Easy Action b/w Xmas Riff and Born To Boogie – December 1972, EMI/T.Rex Wax Co. Label MARC 3
5. 20th Century Boy b/w Free Angel – March 1973, EMI/T.Rex Wax Co. Label MARC 4
6. The Groover b/w Midnight – June 1973, EMI/T.Rex Wax Co. Label MARC 5
7. Truck On (Tyke) b/w Sitting Here – November 1973, EMI/T.Rex Wax Co. Label MARC 6
8. Teenage Dream b/w Satisfaction Pony – January 1974, EMI/T.Rex Wax Co Label MARC 7
9. Light of Love b/w Explosive Mouth – July 1974 – EMI/T.Rex Wax Co. Label MARC 8
