T. Rex's biggest hit in the U.S. (a #17 LP), the dynamic dispatcher of two hits to the #1 spot in the UK ( Telegram Sam; Metal Guru ) the definitive soundtrack to T. Rextasy, ca. 1972! Glitter sales surged, as did adoration of Bolan's sexy, sordid songs; those two smashes join the title tune; Mystic Lady; Rock On; Baby Strange; Main Man; Rabbit Fighter a glorious glam classic, on CD or vinyl.

Just the fact that it exists should cause an automatic 5 stars to be posted for every copy sold.
This record is as close to rock perfection as the gods could allow to exist on earth!!
Marc Bolan is at his best during this time, and there's not a single track on this that could be seen as filler at all.
If you claim to like glam rock- then you already own a copy of this.
If you like rock music at all- then you really should own a copy of this.
Do you like any rock music made in the last 42 years? If so, you should listen to part of what has inspired the music of everyone since it's release. Buy this.
I used to think "Electric Warrior" was the best T-Rex album of them all,... until I really repeatedly listened to "The Slider".
What Marc Bolan & Company started to do musically on the Warrior disc, reached it's apex on The Slider album. That whole combination of great, choppy Chuck Berry-like guitar hook riffs, funny, loopy lyrics & just all around heavy metal thunder wall of sound bombastics shows the band at it's peak. Even the quieter tunes rock!
My personal favorites, "Metal Guru", "Chariot Choogle", "Mystic Lady", "Ballrooms of Mars", & "Rabbit Fighter", sound like a great mini space-travel rock opera soundtrack.
Ideally, to me, both this disc AND the Electric Warrior disc should both be enjoyed together. They make a potent case for T-Rex & Marc Bolan's place in rock & roll history that greatly deserves to be remembered and appreciated more than it presently seems to be.
Definatly both worth checking out if you have'nt done so already!
I am a huge fan originally hooked from the U.S. release of Electric Warrior and on.
Slider outshines warrior and is the ultimate album.
I recommend Slider then warrior for beginners. Then if you appreciate them, you can buy everything you can get your hands on.
This release of slider includes a 2nd disc of the album pre-slick production. I love them both.
While the production version of the title song is great with the strings,I also like the stripped down version. I would have to say I like them equally. It depends on my mood as to which one I will listen to. It is a shame what drug addiction did to his talent and life. Then the tragic auto accident when he cleaned up and was making a go of it once more. Rock on, Rock on, yeah,yeah,yeah
