The Slider is the third studio album by English rock band T. Rex, their seventh if including the group's earlier incarnation as Tyrannosaurus Rex, released on 21 July 1972 by record labels EMI and Reprise. Two singles, Telegram Sam and Metal Guru, were released to promote the album. The Slider received acclaim from critics, and reached number 4 in the UK charts and number 17 in the US.

Also, it was the band's best selling USA album in its run from 1968-1974. Not surprisingly, leveraging the funk and chunk of its Get It On and Jeepster hits in 1971. While it was considered an innovator in the glam rock genre, that had more to do with the band's stage presence e. Bolan's feminine flowing cape and see-through glitter tops.

Lyrically, Bolan's flair for the sublimely ridiculous is fully intact, but he has way too much style for The Slider to sound truly stupid, especially given the playful, knowing wink in his delivery. It's nearly impossible not to get caught up in the irresistible rush of melodies and cheery good times. Even if it treads largely the same ground as Electric Warrior, The Slider is flawlessly executed, and every bit the classic that its predecessor is. Track Listing. Type Album. Дата релиза Июль 1972.

Today, we revisit the peak of Marc Bolans career, the extravagant and near-perfect The Slider. In 1969, Marc Bolan published a folio of poetry titled The Warlock of Love. By that point, the man born Mark Feld had already been the guitarist of mod-rock band Johns Children for all of four months before turning his attention to folk-rock duo Tyrannosaurus Rex. The Slider bookends the previous album, Electric Warrior nicely while managing not to be part two thats interchangeable. It has its own vibe and even though elements are there that were present in EW, somehow its in its own universe and maybe a bit more confessional in Marcs songwriting some of it heartbreaking. I'm new to the T Rex Bandwagon. Been a musician for over 35 years and I knew very little about Marc Bolan and T Rex. Can't believe that
