  • An incredible copy of this T.Rex classic with both sides rating a Triple Plus (A+++)
  • Both sides here are absolutely Out Of This World — so full of richness and Tubey Magic
  • We’re selling this one at a big discount due to some condition issues (see grading tab below)
  • “… it’s that sense of playfulness, combined with a raft of irresistible hooks, that keeps Electric Warrior such an infectious, invigorating listen today.” – All Music

Incredible Triple Plus (A+++) sound or close to it on both sides. This is a classic album, but it’s not an easy one to find great sound for. We’ve attempted this shootout multiple times in the past, only to come up empty handed. Most copies are just too beat to play and if they’re not beat they typically sound terrible. But after years of trying, I’m glad to report that we’ve managed to unearth some amazing sound!

It’s very very tough to find good clean copies of this title (same goes for The Slider), let alone copies with White Hot sound, so any fan of the band should probably snap this up.

What amazing sides of this Glam Rock Masterpiece from 1971 have to offer is not hard to hear:

  • The biggest, most immediate staging in the largest acoustic space
  • The most Tubey Magic, without which you have almost nothing. CDs give you clean and clear. Only the best vintage vinyl pressings offer the kind of Tubey Magic that was on the tapes in 1971
  • Tight, note-like, rich, full-bodied bass, with the correct amount of weight down low
  • Natural tonality in the midrange — with all the instruments (and effects!) having the correct timbre
  • Transparency and resolution, critical to hearing into the three-dimensional studio space

No doubt there’s more but we hope that should do for now. Playing the record is of course the only way to hear all of the above.
