T. Rex / Remixes: limited triple vinyl set

Potentially controversial remix set • Very limited 3LP coloured vinyl

Demon Music are to mark the 40th anniversary of Marc Bolan’s untimely death with a project that is sure to divide fans of T. Rex. They have commissioned new remixes of classic tracks such as Metal Guru, Telegram Sam and 20th Century Boy for a two-CD set that is also available as a strictly limited 500-only triple coloured vinyl set.

T. Rex Remixes features 16 modern remixes by people you have probably never heard of, including The Reflex, Wye Oak, STOOF, Castleman, Ra Ra Riot etc. There are also 12 bonus instrumental remixes on both the triple vinyl and two-CD editions (they have exactly the same audio content).


Only 500 of the translucent red vinyl package will be pressed (click to enlarge)

I’ll admit, I was prepared to hate this, but having been given an early sneak audio preview, some of the remixes are surprisingly good. The ‘Jaxon Frank Remix’ of Children Of The Revolution is full of unexpected pathos and the STOOF remix of 20th Century Boy keeps the structure and heart of the song in place, but with a sprinkle of 21st Century audio dust.

For the most part, the remixes are respectful enough and there’s no really hideously ‘boom-tish’ club transformations, although I accept that this isn’t going to be for everyone.

However, the 500-only triple vinyl is pretty desirable and limited for a T. Rex release and it is an Amazon UK exclusive. Non-limited black vinyl is also available, as well as the two-CD set.

T. Rex  Remixes will be released on 1 September 2017. Update 9pm 13/7 – Red vinyl appears to now be sold out.

Bob… no it’s not utter shite and Marc will not be turning in his grave. I suspect if Marc were alive today, he’d be commissioning or orchestrating projects like this himself. Exactly as he re-invented himself in ’77 ushering in “new” acts like the Damned, Group X, etc. and revisiting/updating his older classics like Deborah, etc.

My wife bought this as part of my early Xmas gift. First listen today, loved it, actually more than I thought I would. Cadilac came on, first I got goosebumps, then when the bass kicked in, a large smile overtook my face and I turned it up. Instant sunshine.

Lastly, the artists involved in this project are testimony to the import and influence of Marc’s work. I strongly disagree with your comment about the estate mismanaging the catalog. Just the opposite, they are sharing it, liberating it, and allowing it to continue its immortal journey.

Neil Kelly

Paul, i didn’t get your last point what did you mean by ‘but are using a system…’? Did you just mean to say ‘but they are using a system…’?
I note it’s been available for months now after selling out on day 1. I ordered on day 1 and was very happy. I’m now VERY annoyed. Promising 500 yet making loads. How’s that allowed? Can i ask for my money back? Mine’s still sealed so i haven’t even checked to make sure it’s the red vinyl which is something i worry about but obviously i’m keeping it new and sealed for a reason! A reason which seems pointless now tbf

Straker

I see this continues to be restocked with more available on the 18th. Currently able to add an unlimited amount at checkout.

Still, I’m sure there are only 500…….Yeah, right.

Tony Orwell

BE WARNED – Amazon have been sending out black vinyl versions instead of the limited red vinyl release. There is an easy way to check without unsealing the product, the small black lable on the front of the shrink has a catalogue number at the bottom of the label, the red vinyl version ends with an ‘x’, the black vinyl version does not. Amazon have no replacement stock to satisfy these errors. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Wayne Savill

Guys and Gals, as a lifelong Marc fan I have collected over 500 pieces of vinyl 7″ 10″ 12″, flexis, coloured, pic discs, Sgl, Dbl & Triple Albums, boxed sets, demos, stock issues, white labels, pic sleeves, wax co, various other labels from the UK & all over the world both original pressings and re-issues plus 8 tracks, cassettes & cd’s, they all have their merits. The latest I have the red vinyl (& the cd’s are just for the car!!),

These specials should be welcomed and given a hearing, as I believe that Marc would have been excited that so many other artists would want to either cover one of his songs and even remix it, I say live and let live, and let’s all just Boogie On!!!

Easy Action Records are doing fab stuff, Edsel do some very good and interesting issues http://www.officialmarcbolanmerchco.com.

Danielz and T.Rextasy have been keeping the flame burning since the early ’90’s so if you want hear a true fan do a fab job of keeping Marc’s music ‘LIVE’, go see them … http://www.trextasy.com as it’s the 40th Anniversary of his passing AND he would have been 70 on the 30th Sept…

Also if you want the originals try http://www.vip-24.com record fairs .. I will be at the Olympia Weekender 18th/19th November feeding my vinyl addiction, buying and selling. Rob & John run great events..

Tanx for reading and Boogie On!

Chris Squires

Mine’s just turned up. Nice wide spine. Now to give it a proper listen…..

Neil Kelly

Confused about this release. I noted around 24 August it was back in stock and came back here to see it had been noted as back in stock on the 08 August. Had it been back in stock for around 16 days after initially selling out on day 1? I was going to cancel order but don’t want to regret doing that. I’ve purely bought with selling on in the future in mind. Doesn’t mean i ever will though! Is there really only 500?

Tony Orwell

sold out again

Robert Fitzpatrick

I ain’t getting this release ! it reminds me of the Brian Connolly Sweet remixed album released many years ago. the original versions are still the best !

Phil Wilson

When Amazon put this back on sale, they had over 230 copies, so I suspect this is more than just cancelled orders. I don’t entirely trust their 500 copies only. The hank Marvin signed lp took weeks after release to be sent our, and had sold out on pre-order way in advance of release, o am fairly sure they have some left too

Chris Squires

I don’t think Amazon are that stupid to make 1000 copies and say they have only 500.

They know they are one of the most *watched* companies in the world and there are 1000s of people worldwide looking for any excuse to sue them or cause them as much trouble as possible just because they are ideologically opposed this kind of company.

I genuinely think it is a few people ducking out at the last minute and therefore a few copies make it back onto sale….

elliott buckingham

i think the t.rex has been given the goahead by his son who now owns the rights or so ive read

Chris Squires

I think it’s down to the way that Amazon do business rather than more than the original 500 being made available.

Like many I usually go from here straight to Amazon and put in a pre-order. Sometimes between doing that and the actual release date I decide I can’t afford it – or I don’t actually need it so I cancel my order. This will usually be quite close to the release date. I guess this frees up a few copies which would then go back on release.

I am not sure if people can go on a reserve list…. if they have 500 copies do the people who are 501st, 502nd and so on get first dibs if some are cancelled or do they stop taking orders when exactly 500 are gone?

I have kept hold of this one but I let the signed Blancmange go back and a few other things where I got caught up in the moment. With only 500 I could see how this could happen, less likely if the limited edition is much larger.

Alan Wilson

Red vinyl back in stock as of Tuesday 8th August 11.45

[…] limited red vinyl edition may have sold out in a nanosecond, but the 3LP black vinyl edition of the forthcoming T. Rex […]

Mark

Finally >> I was able to place a Pre-Order for the Amazon Exclusive ( Red Vinyl edition ) just today :: I’ve been signed up to receive emails etc from Amazon UK & each Time I was either in bed or at work or even today I had to go out for an hour just before 8am > I got home at @ 9am and I had received an email at 8am from Amazon saying it was available to pre-order > Tried the link, IT was unavailable again :-( Then @ 10.30am I was sitting here & an email came through saying it was available & this time I grabbed one :-) Its worse than Record Store Day !!!

Dennis Cattell

I think it quite likely that if Marc Bolan was still alive today he’d be happy to let people have a go at remixing some of his early hits and then release them. I don’t have any problem at all with this album as such.

I’d like to think that he’d still be making music today at 70 (almost!), rather than doing the rounds of shows like Celebrity Big Brother and IACGMOOT! And that he’d have made his peace with guys like Tony Visconti and Bob Harris.

richard

Just bagged a copy of the red vinyl set. I asked to be emailed by Amazon when the red set came back in stock. Received three emails on different days and tried to buy the red set on three occasions ( first two times I tried around thirty mins after being emailed ) Third time lucky I ordered it within a minute of the Amazon email arriving.
I guess some people must be cancelling their orders.

Heinz

Does the vinyl-version include a download code?
(Sorry, should this already have been part of the discussion….)

Heinz

Thanks a lot for this information, Paul!!!

Bolan's Zip Gun

I liked ‘Children Of The Revolution’ by Baby Ford. Not a direct remix of T-Rex, but definitely done in the style of Bolan for the rave era (early 90s).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jh5gJAEtZCc

Kenny

Doesn’t anyone one this site realize how the music industry works? Sell Sell Sell…usually the same product again and again. And if people are buying a product for its cover…kerching! Reminds me of when I used to buy those A+M vinyl releases in the 70s ’cause they smelled divine.

Michael G

Obviously its remixes of bolan tracks nobody is forced to buy it,500 people snapped the ltd edition up in very quick time,I suspect some will be flipped for a profit on eBay,on a personal note I ordered it for the cover,it will certainly stay in my collection for good.

Craig

I’m open minded about this. I’m not bothered about Vinyl so I’ll listen to it first and if I like it , I’ll get the CD version.

AlexKx

Oh, wow! Just because certain recordings were not released in an artist’s lifetime does not mean that they were not good enough or did not want them to be released! This thinking has GOT to stop!

bob

Oh really, so what are you suggesting, that as soon as an artist is dead allow their vaults to be raided?
It is (often) up to an artist to decide what they think is good enough to release during their lifetime, that shouldn’t change once they die.
Also, do you know anything about the abuse of Bolan’s back catalogue? Over 300 compilations (many of them shockingly poor) Dozens and dozens of releases of demo recordings, a few good, most very poor. Not one person from Marc’s family has any kind of say in these releases.
No offence but your post is just plain daft.

SimonP

All the preview links seem to be removed now.

This thread is making me laugh with all the fans saying Bolan would be turning in his grave at the thought of his stuff being remixed, yet at the same time are clamouring for some unreleased tat that he no doubt deemed not worthy of the public’s attention at the time it was recorded. There’s a reason why some recordings are left unreleased and that reason is because the artist didn’t think they were good enough. How about respecting those wishes, too?

Randy Metro

Had Marc lived a full life, he may have revisited that “unreleased tat” as he often did. One example being the Children of Rarn Suite. The demo is quite nice. Tony Visconti’s posthumous mix is lovingly done. Marc went back to it several years later with a radical rework obviously believing it was worth being heard.

Look at the even shorter life & recorded works of Hendrix. Tons of his posthumous recordings are rework after rework of songs he was determined, but did not live, to release.

Isn’t a good share of what Super Deluxe Editions is about is exploring that “unreleased tat deemed not worthy of the public’s attention”???

elliott buckingham

just gave these a listen on amazon and they sound very good and not ott at all excellent

John

Harsh

Brian

Take note Bowie fans. This could be the future

elliott buckingham

id be up for a david bowie remix set as long as they didn’t stray too far from the originals

Francesco

Pointless. Merchandising, nothing more or less. Aimed squarely at the gullible and will no doubt hit its (limited) target but not for me. If Marc ain’t involved, what is the point? I’ll stick with the original versions.

Francesco

I disagree, and I can be as gullible as anybody for the right artists (for good quality live recordings anyway) but my comments are still valid and this kind of remix exercise is the worst kind of merchandising, in my opinion. There is definitely a place for the statement someone made about Joy Division – ‘they released two studio albums, everything else is merchandising’ and up to a point we are all gullible because we all buy it a some point, myself included!

Francesco

Sorry Paul but that is not what gullible means, only the first part of your definition is correct (up to the ‘something that turns out to be…’ bit) and as collectors we are all too easily persuaded to buy something more (that all too often does not deliver).

elliott buckingham

that must mean then that you will never buy a release but another dead artist ever again

Francesco

See my comment above.

Lesley

When there’s original unreleased recordings of Marc still out there, that should take priority. Find some way of getting it released before it’s too late. None of us are getting any younger – and who else would Marc have wanted to hear it. He loved his fans and he was taken from us too soon, that’s why we love discovering stuff we’ve not heard or seen before. 40 years on, Bolan is still pure genius.

[…] of the more hotly debated releases this week was Demon’s triple vinyl set of T. Rex remixes. These are remixes created […]

John

4 versions of 20th Century Boy, and no versions of Bang a Gong. Just saying.

Lainey

Not in my lifetime would I ever buy this shite…..proper BolanFan

colm47

Chopdog, I don’t know whether to say Tanx or not for posting that link!

I just searched it out and listened to a few clips of the “remixes”.

My ears are still bleeding!

Lainey’s comment below says it all.

Fat old bloke

If they had got Steven Wilson to remix the classic songs into 5.1 on a BluRay with added videos of his hits, that would have been a better tribute to the man and a better product to buy and enjoy

SimonP

Zzzzzzz

Chopdog

You can head 30 seconds of each track on iTunes – TODAY.

They are charging £4.99 for the album.

chris cummings

Sharon M says it all.
This may be good for Bolan’s profile out there, but the real fans want what Sharon says!!!

bob

Actually speak for yourself, I am a huge Bolan fan and consider myself to be ‘real’, but that is not what I want.

AlexKx

Can we just go ahead and put an announcement out to the music industry that if you don’t want us to purchase your products than just fucking quit. Don’t bother. There is no reason for an announcement or acknowledgement of some thing (I’m not directing this to you all at all SuperDeluxeEdition! :) You all rock and are GREAT!) that will only have five hundred copies and not be possible to be bought before I can do my daily stumbling over here. How many times a day do I have to check this website out? Or WHERE EVER?! I mean five hundred copies should be enough family, friends, and industry people who will privately purchase this many copies without releasing it to the public! I don’t want you all to strain yourselves and get hurt! Five hundred copies of a release like this shouldn’t even make it out of England because that many people should have bought them all long before they could shipped out. This dumbfounding. Very disappointing yet again (in particular to the two David Bowie colored vinyl discs for “Labyrinth” that were sold out before I knew anything about them because I think the same number of discs were made as this T-Rex release.

If there are not five hundred one people to sell these products to then my interests must be seriously misplaced in thinking there is any relevance to collecting music in a physical format. Let’s just be clear. Five hundred copies is NOT a public release. It is private! It was not meant for public consumption. It is a glorified private release at best in this case! Which goes back to if there are not five hundred people who can purchase this between the Bolan Estate (or whoever), people in the industry, family, and friends then they have a much bigger problem on their hands than trying to sell whatever amount at all.

Kai Karkkainen

I understand what you’re saying AlexKx as I have experienced the same thing myself. I recommend that you sign up to SDE’s newsletters and deal alerts ( if you haven’t done so already ), they have “saved” me many euros and helped me to grab limited editions of records I wouldn’t otherwise even have known about ( like this T.Rex red vinyl ). So thanks again Paul for your valuable service and please keep doing what you do so well.

As for those opinions that proper Bolan fans want a deal with Thunderwing and nothing else will do, not true. I consider myself a proper Bolan fan, Electric Warrior was the start of my Bolan collection ( I was eight years old at the time, now I’m 54 ). Sure, it would be great to have unreleased music from Thunderwing, but as this is unlikely to happen, even remix projects like these are in my opinion better than nothing at all. The main thing for me is to see that Bolan’s music will live on and that younger generations also get a chance to appreciate it. Keep a little Marc in your heart, indeed.

elliott buckingham

ill be happy if these are as good as the bob marley remixes that were done the other year. stayed faithfull to the originals without being too ott with hardcore dance beats

SimonP

And some of the Roxy Music ones from a few years back. The Todd Terje dub of Love Is The Drug is excellent…

Chris Squires

I guess that Edsel / Demon / Cherry Red and the like know, to a few dozen, exactly how many of any one album they can sell. They will also have the number crunchers to know what they can charge for a particular release and a particular artist. There will be a few exceptions but generally they will get it about right. If Thunderwing are asking as arm and a leg and it is more than Demon can sell, or think they can sell then it’s no deal. If they can do a deal but the vinyl has to be £45 instead of £27 and the CDs £20 to make it pay then the moans will start coming as “Rip-off”.
Every post has a “I’m not paying these rip-off prices” with little comprehension of what has to be done to get this stuff to market.

If any of us owned the rights to the demos we wouldn’t give them away, would we? It would be good if a deal could be done though.

Randy Metro

In the past, Thunderwing were able to get through a loophole by selling a T.Shirt for the same price as a CD and then gave the CD away free with the shirt: The Slider Sessions & The Tanx Sessions CDs. They are nothing like those pathetic “alternate versions” released by Edsel. I don’t think Thunderwing/TPL are the ones holding up the release of material. Unfortunately the 2005 Twentieth Century Rock N Roll CD sits unreleased with the artwork and track list completed. I’m not sure how their T.Rex Rock & Roll Ensemble CD EP was able to get out but I was lucky to get a copy.

Sharon M

Another cash in job. Do the decent thing – a deal with Thunderwing and give us proper Bolan fans something back before we all shuffle off this mortal coil or are too befuddled to care.

Lainey

Well said babe

elliott buckingham

red vinyl has now gone.

don cooper

Tony Visconti did remixes for a Japan-only cd issue.I have that. It is the benchmark.
I expect this to be the wood-shavings below…

John

Won’t be getting it but it is at least what it is: a full collection of remixes, not a few remixes thrown on top of another collection of something else. Kudos on releasing a dedicated remix album. If you’re into remixes you can buy it and if not you’re not forced to buy it in order to get something else.

James Demestihas

If Tony Visconti isnt involved…its not authentic.

Catweazle

Well the ’87 TV mixes weren’t really that good, were they?

Randy Metro

Actually, they weren’t that bad because they were lightly remixed. Those Dawn & Dusk mixes were fun if you can pretend you don’t hear those GONGS! The Free Angel remix was hardly noticeable, while I think the one T.Rex single I hate – Children of the Revolution – was improved, at least the first half of it.

Noel Brownle

I’ll be giving this a miss. Just another money making re-hash in my opinion. Enough remixes out there and the number of re-pakaged albums is a disgrace. I reiterate what others have said, would have been a fitting tribute in this Marc’s 40th anniversary year that we got some of the un releaded stuff from Thunderwing. Disappointing to say the least.

Chris S

Since I passed on most T-Rex material the first time around, maybe I will give the remixes a try. Will try to get the red album, but black would be alright.

Marc Hartley

I don’t understand why the fans of Marc are not trying to get Edsel to do a deal with Thunderwing productions Ltd to get their unreleased outtakes, unheard songs and alternate mixes released..all original Bolan and just lying there not doing anything? The 40th Anniversary for Marc would have been far better served doing that than releasing this kind of thing…..saddens me to be honest.

george kilpatrick

Totally agree Marc, there must be so much unseen or heard material, that could have or indeed should have been released especially as this is a very special year, his 40th Anniversary, not just for his loyal fans, but for any music lover to appreciate. I personally have no urge to purchase material that is just being re-mixed by unknown artists, and for what purpose? profit perhaps. Very sad.

MamboSon

I heard that Thunderwing want a ridiculous amount of money for their archive..Demon/ Edsel /Spirit won’t budge..Shame this Golden Egg will soon turn rancid..Only to be heard by the “Chosen Ones”.. now that is sad..

Randy Metro

It is not Thunderwing/DanielZ’s fault. They have contributed to recent releases when asked. As I understand, it isn’t Edsel either, but Spirit Music who currently hold the rights and won’t allow Thunderwing to do anything. TPL have leaked a couple free small acoustic downloads (Do Your Thing & Baby Hold My Hand).

Marc Arscott

Nobody has to buy this material from Thunderwing, they are able to licence it from them if they want to include tracks on their own releases, as they did with ‘The Final Cuts’, they have chosen not to since. Thunderwing have asked Spirit for the opportunity to release ‘new material’ for many years and as yet this has not been forthcoming. The ‘Chosen Ones’ (which I presume you mean to be Thunderwing) have been wanting this material to be heard since the moment they obtained it and find it very frustrating not to be able to share it with the fans.

Romany

Totally agree with you Marc Hartley !
Such a missed opportunity by Edsel to make up for the poor sound quality on the Slider Deluxe 40th Anniversary boxset.
They should of used the original multi track tapes that Thunderwing productions Ltd offered.
I gave up on expecting anything good to come out of Edsel years ago.

Andy

Snagged one as soon as I saw Paul’s email, especially given there’s only 500 of the red version – now all gone – thanks again Paul!

Paul Wren

It’s sold out. Whoever bought one is probably sitting on an instant profit even if they don’t like what it sounds like.

Georgia Price

Ha Ha Never unknown bands singing remix covers of T.Rex profit lol<
I wouldn't listen to it if u paid me !!!

Jim

Calm down Georgia Price, no one is going to pay you to listen to it.

Michel Kempes

Sold out

Jaqob

Count me among the perverted. I took the swing and am having it shipped to the states. I have so much good and bad posthumous Marc that this triple red atrocity will feel right at home no matter what the quality. And as another poster wrote above, how could it possibly be ALL bad? You know, like MegaRex 1 and 2 megamix bad?

Perhaps lesser known remixers is a positive. There is room out there for more than just the “names” we know. As Frank Zappa said (paraphrased) there are so many great musicians you’ll never get the chance to hear. Maybe some of these remixers will provide a thoughtful and enjoyable remix experience. (Fingers crossed!)

-SG-

This actually looks really interesting, I have heard some mixes by The Reflex which were quite good and faithful to the originals utlizing the multitracks not unlike the ZTT mixes done by Blank and Jones. Look on youtube for his excellent mix of Michael Jackson’s Rock With You. The cover looks more like Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter.
