The nucleus of The Sweet came together in 1966, when drummer Michael Thomas Tucker (b. 17 July 1947, Harlesden, London, England) and vocalist Brian Francis Connolly (b. 5 October 1945, Hamilton, Scotland) played together in Wainwright's Gentlemen, a small-time club circuit band whose repertoire comprised a mixture of Motown, R&B and psychedelia…
Total T. Rex is a beautiful collector's box set, individually numbered and limited to 5000 copies worldwide. This six disc box set contains previously unreleased material from the personal collection of Marc's family for the first time! Box set includes five CDs, a DVD, Electric Warrior stickers and an illustrated booklet containing liner notes by T. Rex members Mickey Finn, Steve Currie, Bill Legend, and several unpublished photos. This set captures the four piece group at the height of their popularity during the period when Marc's success was dubbed by the press as “T-Rextasy”. Across the six discs is a wealth of previously unheard material including home demos of Marc and the band rehearsing and working on songs for the legendary Electric Warrior album and features the song Electric Warrior which was to give the band the title of the album although the song was left in the vault at the time and has never previously been heard! Marc's son Rolan Bolan has personally overseen all the aspects of this lavish boxed set.
Easy Action is the second studio album by Alice Cooper, released by Straight Records in March 1970. The title comes from a line in the musical film West Side Story, which was one of the band's favorite films. As with Pretties For You, the band's debut from the previous year, Easy Action was neither a commercial nor critical success.
This 1972 self-titled CD is the sole effort from the obscure 'heavy rock' five piece that is from Zweibrucken, Germany. In the summer of 1972, Action recorded three tracks for demo purposes at the Kerston studio. Only in 1997, the recordings by chance caught the attention of the small Dortmund label Very Good Records. The label released them as LP together with a live track in an edition of 500 copies on black and 100 copies on green vinyl. At the end of 2008, Action joined together once more for two professionally recorded gigs. The one from 11/22/2008 was now added to the CD as bonus. The tracks from 1972 were drawn from the master tapes, as well as the new ones.
