buoyed by 2 uk number one singles in ‘telegram sam’ & ‘metal guru’, ‘the slider’ became t rex's most popular record on both sides of the atlantic.

crammed with effortless hooks & trashy fun, all of bolan's signatures are here - mystical folk-tinged ballads, overt sexual come-ons crooned over sleazy, bopping boogies, loopy nonsense poetry, & a mastery of the 3-minute pop song form. the main difference is that the trippy mix of 'electric warrior’ is replaced by a fuller, more immediate-sounding production. bolan's guitar has a harder bite, the backing choruses are more up-front, & the arrangements are thicker-sounding, even introducing a string section on some cuts (both ballads & rockers). this audiophile reissue on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl was remastered specially for the 40th anniversary boxset by tony visconti. includes free download card.
