T. Rex's The Slider cemented the band as glam rock's conquering heroes. Spawning two UK Number 1 singles - Telegram Sam and Metal Guru - and produced by Tony Visconti, this 1972 classic has now been given the deluxe edition treatment.

There's also a 48-page hardback book, featuring a 6000-word essay from Bolan biographer and MOJO contributor Mark Paytress, and a 40-page book of sheet music.
