T. Rex - The Slider (Great Record)

The Slider is an album by T. Rex, released in 1972. It is a glam rock album released on Mercury Records and went on to become T. Rex's most popular album in the United States, featuring the main singles "Telegram Sam" and "Metal Guru", neither of which became hits in the U.S. The much-parodied iconic cover was #37 in Rolling Stone magazines list of the 100 greatest album covers.

It came after the success of Electric Warrior and many said that probably helped its own success. The virtues of Electric Warrior were all there, but most agreed it had a very different style.

* Guns N' Roses covered "Buick Mackane" (spelt "Buick Makane" on the sleeve) on The Spaghetti Incident? album.

* The title track was used on a Coca-Cola advertisement.

* "Chariot Choogle" is played over the end credits to Born to Boogie. Its riff is similar to "Whole Lotta Love" by one of Bolan's favourite bands, Led Zeppelin.
