T. Rex Bolan's Zip Gun on LP

Much of T. Rex's 1975 release Bolan's Zip Gun returns to the understated romp Bolan had always excelled at. The delightful knockabout "Precious Star," the unrepentant boogie of "Till Dawn" and the pounding title track, all echo with the effortless lightheartedness which was Bolan at his most carelessly buoyant, while "Token of My Love" is equally incandescent, a playful blues number which swiftly became a major in-concert favorite.

But the essence of Zip Gun remains firmly in the funky pastures which characterized Zinc Alloy, with the only significant difference lying in the presentation. Out went the plush production which so diluted the earlier set, to be replaced by a sparser sound which emphasized the rhythms, heightened the backing vocals, and left rock convention far behind.

"Light of Love," "Golden Belt" and the heavyweight ballad "I Really Love You Babe" may not be Stax-sized attractions, but they have an earthy authenticity nevertheless.
