Notes

"The material represented on this unique series of CDs comes in the main from four reels of home demo tapes recorded by Marc at his London homes between the spring of 1971 and the autumn of 1973.
What has been uncovered within these reels are the genuine embryonic beginnings of many Bolan classics, along with well over a dozen songs discarded as the recording process moved from Marc's four track TEAC A3340/Revox A77 home tape machines all the way to finished studio masters."

"Most of these recordings were stolen from Marc & Gloria’s home literally the day after Marc died. It is with great pride that we are returning these recordings to the family and the royalties from sales of this set, now audio restored and mastered by Anders Peterson at Ghost Sound in Sweden, will help fund The Marc Bolan School of Music through Gloria’s charity The Light of Love Foundation."

℗ & © 2018 Easy Action / Light Of Love Foundation
All royalties go to Light of Love Foundation for The Marc Bolan School of Music & Film, Gloria Jones, Rolan Feld.

Clamshell box with each CD in individual card sleeves and a 28-page booklet featuring photos and liner notes on each volume.
