Waterloo Records

March 2023 marked the 50th anniversary of the release of the T. Rex album "Tanx". Recorded at the height of Bolanmania, and produced by Tony Visconti, the album was preceded by the huge hit singles "Children Of The Revolution", "Solid Gold Easy Action" and "20th Century Boy", all of which have been added to CD1, along with their B-sides.  In this special 2CD set, CD2 contains "The Alternate Tanx: Left Hand Luke", a bonus disc of 23 fascinating 'work-in-progress' versions and demos, which (as far as possible) mirrors the original album's running order.  The two CDs are presented in brand new seven-inch deluxe gatefold packaging, with an 8- page booklet which includes the lyrics, plus annotation about the bonus disc.
