This is my first post - apologies for any mistakes. My boyfriend says this is a cracking deal as this box set is £149.64 on Amazon.

Product Description
Strictly limited to 2000 copies (numbered 1 - 2000) Now remastered for the first time by Tony Visconti, this classic album released in July 1972 on the back of three chart-topping T.Rex LPs provides a perfect snapshot of the era the press dubbed T. Rextasy and is proof of Bolan s extraordinary and enduring appeal across the generations.

The Slider contained two UK Number 1 hit singles, Telegram Sam and Metal Guru the latter famously regarded by Morrissey as pop perfection . It was the first to bear the T. Rex Wax Co imprint, a seal of approval from EMI Records, who felt Bolan sufficiently important to warrant having his own record label.

On the accompanying DVD, Tony Visconti recalls the making of the album in an exclusive new 105-minute interview with Bolan biographer Mark Paytress. The DVD also features TV footage including performances of Telegram Sam and Metal Guru from Top Of The Pops, ITV performance footage of Cadilac, Spaceball Ricochet and Telegram Sam, plus Marc s interview with Russell Harty from 1972. Rounding off the DVD is footage of Marc Bolan and Mickey Finn visiting EMI s pressing plant, a TV advert for The Slider and a US promotional film of Buick Mackane.

Tony Visconti has also written a special essay for the 48-page hardback coffee-table book included in the box, which also features a 6,000-word essay by Paytress, rare photos and reproductions of archive material. Also included in the set, which comes in a sturdy 12 x 12 box, is a 180g vinyl pressing of the original album, its two spin-off singles and a repro of the hugely collectable promo-only Chariot Choogle 45, all in facsimile T. Rex Wax Co paper sleeves.

Rounding off the package is a 40-page book of the sheet music for every song on the album, an A2 poster, sticker, plastic carrier bag, sew-on patch and facsimiles of an original Bolan fan club letter, membership card, rosette and concert ticket.

Fantastic price, postage is estimated at £3.44 when you add to your shopping cart, so £23.43 all in.

Looking at the content it's daylight robbery asking for around £150 for this box, but it takes nothing away from this deal, an absolute steal if you like T-Rex
Nice deal :3
wow 40 yrs where did they go?
Sold Out :( - adding heat anyway!
As of right now, this is back in stock!

This seems to be fluctuating between in stock and out of stock, so may be worth checking on occasionally, if you are interested.;)
