Celebrate Summer indeed! This August sees the release of a 6CD box set of Marc Bolan's session recordings and interviews for the BBC. You'd have to be a real sourpuss with a dislike of classic pop music to not like the records Marc Bolan made with Tyrannosaurus Rex and T.Rex. From the folksy beginnings and on into the brash 'n bluesy classic Glam period. Even on into the later years where an influence of contemporary American soul crept in, you have to admit the guy could write and record great pop music. What joy then to hear that Universal Music have put together this set featuring pretty much everything he recorded for the nation's favourite station Radio One. Sessions for Saturday Club, John Peel's Top Gear, and In Concert are included along with sets recorded for Peter Powell, Dave Lee Travis, Bob Harris and "Diddy" David Hamilton.
