Album: T. Rex, The Slider: 40th Anniversary Box Set (EDSEL)

Marc Bolan is finally been given credit for arguably being as influential as his 1970s playmate David Bowie on decades of subsequent rock and pop music.

Here he is at his pouting, poignant, powerful best with an album that's not dated one jot. This limited-edition box set includes vinyl copies of the album and singles, a bonus CD of demos and a DVD featuring a lengthy interview with Tony Visconti, the under-acknowledged co-creator of the T. Rex sound.
