Polydor has just released the reissued 40th Anniversary edition of the iconic T. Rex album Electric Warrior as a 2-CD/1-DVD deluxe box set. Producer Tony Visconti has done the remastering of the LP. The special Disc #2 includes Demos & Out-Takes, with 20 of the tracks previously unreleased. The third disc is a special 40th Anniversary DVD which spotlights ten rare performances as well as promotional videos.

Elton is seen with the band for Get It On from a 1971 Top of the Pops episode. Also included are out-takes from the Born To Boogie film.

The set comes packaged in a lavish box containing a 32-page hardcover book containing new liner notes by Mark Paytress, along with memorabilia such as photos, a coaster and a poster.

 

Incidentally, Get It On can also be heard on Tim Burton's new movie. Also included on the Dark Shadows soundtrack are tunes from Alice Cooper, the Moody Blues, Donovan and Barry White.
