Limited 180gm clear vinyl LP pressing. This, the final official Marc Bolan and T. Rex album, was conceived during a turbulent time in rock history. Issued on 11 March 1977, Dandy In The Underworld arrived in the wake of The Damned's 'New Rose' And The Sex Pistols' 'Anarchy In The UK', singles that had given the emerging punk rock a national platform. To promote the album, Bolan undertook a tour of the UK and Europe, with support from The Damned, who acknowledged T. Rex as a big influence. With a new T. Rex line-up, Bolan had already scored a # 13 hit single with "I Love To Boogie", and followed this up with single releases of the title track of the album, "The Soul Of My Suit" And "Crimson Moon", before culminating with the exuberant "Celebrate Summer", tragically the last single to be issued in Bolan's lifetime.

Full of beautiful lyrics, great musicianship and wonderful arrangements. A good indication that Marc was back to his best just before his tragically early death.
Released during the punk era, there’s not really much punk in the sound, just punchy pop that’s well played by Bolan and band.
The vinyl edition recreates the original design well, but although the sound is great I’m not sure this is a new remaster.
(Note: sadly the album arrived with a damaged/ripped sleeve (but still sealed), suggesting that the damage was caused in the warehouse not in postage/transit)
