Consisting of two discs, the first featuring songs from the matinee show, a medley of hits with Bolan playing acoustic guitar accomplied by a string quartet, spliced with excerpts from the film.
The second disc (for me the reason for buying the album) is the entire evening performance.
A real rough & ready sound, perhaps the audio is lifted from the film tape reels, but it shows a different side to T Rex (there doesn’t seem any point in realising a live album if the songs sound exactly the same as the studio recordings).
Highlights form me are an extended version of “Get it on”, which is quite brave considering that the audience consists of mostly teenage girls, & a cover of “Summer time blues”, & because of the grungy sound doesn’t sound a million miles away from The Who’s version they performed on “Live ay Leeds”.
Only quibble is that at just over 50 minutes, the show is a little short, but it was at the height of Bolan’s pop phase of his career.
