T-Rex ZINC ALLOY Vinyl Record

T-Rex ZINC ALLOY Vinyl Record
Limited 180 gram audiophile vinyl LP pressing of this album from Marc Bolan & Co., lovingly restored in original sleeve replication and cut from the latest digital remaster. Zinc Alloy and the Hidden Riders of Tomorrow (subtitled A Creamed Cage in August) was the ninth studio album by Bolan & T. Rex, released in February 1974. Marc Bolan discovered the Musicland Studios in Munich and was one of the first British artists recording here, most basic recordings were done here during the second half of 1973. The songs reflect a darker mood than on Bolan's earlier releases, with lead track "Venus Loon" having quite grotesque subject matter. This was surely reflective of Bolan's inner uncertainty about his status in the rock world now that he was no longer a teen idol. Other songs such as "Galaxy" and "Change" contain similar forebodings and dark imagery. The music, too, is ambitious and complex, containing some of Marc's most inventive extended guitar solos.
