About Electric Warrior

This limited edition silkscreen print of T.Rex's Electric Warrior album cover art has been signed by Bill Legend, the drummer and only surviving member of T.Rex. The photograph from which Aubrey Powell developed the cover was taken by Keiron Murphy, most notably responsible for some the most iconic images of John Lennon. Beck chose this cover (for Vanity Fair in 2001) as one of his top 50 album covers, and no wonder. The iconic stance of Bolan in the photograph accentuated by the heavenly, electric glow that surrounds him seems to us to be a homage not only to T.Rex but to rock music in general. Electric Warrior was the sixth album released by T.Rex but it propelled them into the charts becoming the biggest album of 1971 and one of the quintessential glam rock releases. It's appeal has lasted, though and it was ranked number 160 in Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time in 2003. No wonder, as the album contains two of T. Rex's most popular songs, Get It On and Jeepster. Bolan, in a 1971 interview contained on the Rhino Records reissue, said of the album "I think Electric Warrior, for me, is the first album which is a statement of 1971 for us in England. I mean that's. If anyone ever wanted to know why we were big in the other part of the world, that album says it, for me." Printed on a textured and weighty Somerset tub paper. Stunning.
