Description
Barcode 600753-540763. Universal "Back To Black"-series reissue: "...widely considered to be one of the quintessential glam rock releases. Electric Warrior reached number thirty-two in the US; while it went to number one for several weeks in the UK, becoming the biggest album of 1971. One of the best-known songs on the record is "Get It On", whose title was changed in the United States to "Bang a Gong (Get It On)" (as there was another hit song at the time called "Get It On" by the group Chase). This was T.Rex's biggest single and their only U.S. hit (#10). The track is followed by "Girl", which is separated from the rest of the album by an unusual flugelhorn arrangement. "Cosmic Dancer" is an acoustic-based song propelled by producer Tony Visconti's string arrangements. Bolan, in a 1971 interview contained on the Rhino Records reissue, said of the album "I think Electric Warrior, for me, is the first album which is a statement of 1971 for us in England. I mean that's... If anyone ever wanted to know why we were big in the other part of the world, that album says it, for me."
