Album Review

Marc Bolan and T. Rex performed many times for a variety of radio broadcasts. Across the Airwaves is a compilation of these performances, recorded and broadcast circa 1968-71. This is easily one of the best T. Rex titles out there, yet it's becoming increasingly hard to find. The disc features acoustic, electric, and electric-acoustic performances of some of Bolan's best compositions — not all well-known hits, but excellent just the same. His Top of the Pops acoustic sets of early material are solid, but pale in comparison to the later electric-acoustic Beard of Stars-era songs, such as "Fist Heart Mighty Dawn Dart" and "By the Light of the Magical Moon." Other electric highlights include strong performances of "Ride a White Swan," "Sailors of the Highway," and "Summertime Blues." Across the Airwaves was originally released in 1982 as an LP on Cube Records.
