Marc Bolan has been cited as a major influence by some of the biggest names in music from David Bowie to Johnny Marr. Bolan’s golden era was in the late ‘60s and ‘70s when he was the biggest selling singles artist since the Beatles, movie star, and the electric spark behind Glam Rock. He died in 1977 aged just 29, after a car crash in London. For this collection, artists including Nick Cave, U2, Elton John, Joan Jett, and Peaches have reinterpreted and reimagined some of his greatest tracks Contents Children of the revolution Cosmic dancer Jeepster Scenescof Life’s a gas Solid gold, easy action Dawn storm Hippy gumbo I love to boogie Beltane walk Bang a gong (get it on) Diamond meadows Ballrooms of mars Main man Rock on The street and babe shadow The leopards Metal guru Teenage dream Organ blues Planet queen Great horse Mambo sun Pilgrim’s tale Bang a gong (get it on) reprise She was bom to be my unicorn/Ride a white swan
