Edsel are to issue a new T. Rex deluxe ‘bookset’ pairing expanded versions of 1975’s Bolan’s Zip Gun with 1976’s Futuristic Dragon, across three CDs.

Both albums were produced by Bolan (who by then had parted ways with Tony Visconti) and between them they delivered three top 30 hit singles in the UK, including New York City. Amongst the bonus outtakes on this new deluxe set, seven are said to have been mastered from original first generation tapes supplied by two fans – the first time these tapes have been used.

Mark Paytress has written a new 10,000 word essay for the book and the cover features a rare Terry O’Neill photograph.

This Bolan’s Zip Gun / Futuristic Dragon deluxe edition will be released on 3rd March 2017.
