Electric Warrior Limited, High quality edition

Bang a gong and get it on. At once sardonic, flamboyant, and

trashy, T. Rex's uncommonly unique Electric Warrior catapulted

leader Marc Bolan to stardom, triggered an ongoing fascination

with glam rock, and launched a movement that soon involved David

Bowie, Roxy Music, and more. Yet none of those namesake artists

ever released a record that out-glammed, out-thrusted, or outcamped

Electric Warrior--named the 160th Greatest Album of All

Time by Rolling Stone. Bursting with excessive fun and unchecked

libido, T. Rex's catchy boogies, shuffles, and vamps scoot by on

a seemingly impossible blend of concise hooks, non-sequitur

fantasies, and theatrical swagger. The 1971 landmark remains a

rewardingly strange, parallel universe of sound, style, and sex that

still has no equal.

Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's state-of-the-art mastering system, the

label's 180g 45RPM 2LP set and hybrid SACD give Electric Warrior

the widescreen sonics it has always deserved. Tony Visconti's warm,

reverb-soaked production and Roy Thomas Baker's ace engineering

remain two of the work's most revered aspects. On these collectible

reissues, the production and music can be experienced in all its

full-tilt glory, from the subtle albeit elegant classical touches to the

instantly identifiable Les Paul guitar licks to Bolan's sensual, wispy,

are-they-or-aren't-they-serious vocals. All such elements and more

come to life with a realism, vibrancy, and textural palpability that

surpass the presentation of any prior edition. If you can hear colors,

these audiophile versions will stimulate your inner synesthesia.
