  1. Don Cooper says:

    Bonus disc 2 is dire.Elevator/Underworld/Summer perhaps Love at a pinch.Rest are skip track time.
    (fan since 70/71)

  2. Paolo Meccano says:

    Thanks for the heads-up. Certainly a better deal than the recent overpriced T-Rex SDEs.

  3. bob says:

    Whoever is in charge of the T.Rex catalogue should be sacked. I really thought that finally we were going to have the entire T.Rex recorded output in one great package.
    Why are the bonus CD’s missing…?

    – Ride A White Swan
    – Summertime Blues
    – Hot Love
    – Woodland Rock
    – King Of The Mountain Cometh
    – There Was A Time / Raw Ramp

    These are essential tracks from the early 1970/71 period. Answers Universal please.

    • Don Cooper says:

      Concur fully,Bob.
      (perhaps not sacked.Re-training in the Bolan/Rex oeuvre)

    • joe dicupillo says:

      Yeah really, why bother throwing in those 2 discs if your not even going to have those tracks?

      • Paolo Meccano says:

        Give Edsel a break: they’ve done well to licence the first two albums, but Universal would be mugs if they let them have bonus tracks from the current Deluxe Editions as well.

        • joe dicupillo says:

          screw that, give us everything, at this point record companies should realize there is only a small audience for these releases anyway so they may as well try and please them.

          • joe dicupillo says:

            That said I will be buying this since my T.Rex collection is lacking, but this would have been the perfect place to collect all those single tracks

  4. auteur55 says:

    Sweet I had this pre-ordered. Maybe now I can grab that Captain Beefheart one.

  5. Rareglam says:

    I hope the Ian Dury set drops by a similar amount as well (also Edsel and same release date) – it’s gone up from £46 to £50 at the time of writing!

  6. Piotr says:

    I ordered this when the Deal Alart went up here. Cheers Paul for the heads up. I must say this is a superb quality box set.
