Marc Bolan & T-Rex

Zinc Alloy (50th Anniversary): Limited Zoetrope Vinyl LP [RSD24]


Release Date: 24 May, 2024

The only album credited to Marc Bolan & T. Rex and released in March 1974 , ‘Zinc Alloy’ was the last T. Rex album to be produced by Tony Visconti , and features the autobiographical hit single Teenage Dream ”.

Recorded at Musicland Studios in Munich, Bolan was heavily influenced by his new relationship with songwriter Gloria Jones , and a new interest in black music that he heard on US radio stations while on tour in 1973.

This 50 th Anniversary Edition is presented as a zoetrope picture disc, based on the original limited edition multi layered “lattice” sleeve. Viewed with a smartphone running a third party stroboscope app, the images appear animated.
