the path of successful compilations such as the Progressive
Rock Trilogy, Punk Trilogy and Heavy Metal Trilogy,
Music Brokers presents Glam Rock Trilogy, a wonderful
three-disc album that summarizes all the splendor of
the style that influenced much of British rock, from
punk through Brit pop to techno pop.
As a cultural and musical style, glam rock was born
in 1971, with the release of the song Ride A White Swan
by T. Rex. From that moment forward, there arose a veritable
fever which invariably topped the European charts. Artists
such as David Bowie, Alice Cooper, Roxy Music, Slade,
Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, New York Dolls, Suzi Quatro, Glitter
Band, The Sweet, Mott, Cockney Rebel, Suede and the
aforementioned T. Rex became the heads of style, and
all are included in Glam Rock Trilogy, the definitive
album It includes immortal hits such as No More Mr.
Nice Guy, China Girl, Walk on The Wild Side, Children
of The Revolution, Ballroom Blitz, Tiger Feet , Virginia
Plain, Cherry Bomb, The Passenger, Roll Away The Stone,
Mr. Soft and Life On Mars?.
With beautiful cover art, carefully remastered sound
and tasty liner notes telling the story of each song
included, Glam Rock Anthology is a definitive album,
the kind that is rarely published today.
