Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's State-of-the-Art Mastering System: 180g 45RPM Vinyl 2LP Set Presents the 1971 Record's Reverb, Colors, Tones, and String Arrangements in Full-Tilt Glory.

T. Rex's Exotic Landmark Signals the Birth of Glam Rock, Features 'Bang a Gong (Get It On)' and 'Jeepster': Electric Warrior Swaggers with Libido, Flamboyance, Fantasy, Fun, and Theatricality. Named the 160th Greatest Album of All Time by Rolling Stone: Catchy Boogies, Shuffles, and Vamps Burst with Excessive Fun and Playful Pretense. 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, pressed on dead-quiet vinyl at RTI, and housed in a gatefold sleeve, the label's numbered-edition 180g 45RPM 2LP set gives the 1971 landmark the widescreen sound quality 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 famous and revered elements. Here, 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
