As the '70s took hold of the UK, the colorful expectations of the '60s had all but faded away. The Op Art, the psychedelics and the Victorian militia had been replaced by the greys and browns of geometric wallpaper, the three-day week and the oh-so dull Heath/Wilson pendulum. Splashing a much-needed burst of posterpaint color around came the movement that was to be known as glam-rock. No one minded that its chief protagonists had been round the block a few times before: Marc Bolan, Gary Glitter, Alvin Stardust, Mud, The Sweet, Roy Wood and Slade had all been stomping around with varying degrees of success for many years. Tottering precariously around on silver platforms, made up like provocative pantomime dames, playing a strange drum-heavy confection based on rock & roll mixed with nursery rhyme simplicity, the pop world had its sparkling alternative to the head-nodding complexity of the double concept album. Here's a collection of splendid glam obscurities, all laced with a harder edge, as if to prove that, should the need ever arise, these artistes could more than match their progressive counterparts for rock sensibility. Twenty never-before comped glam-rock sparklers specially compiled by legendary psych musician and Psychic Circle label-head, Nick Saloman (The Bevis Frond). Shambles, Tiger, Angel, True Adventure, Change, Stumpy, Union Express, Abacus, Paul Ryder & Time Machine, Panther, Winston, Frenzy, Bullfrog, Pete Dunton, Tim Dandy, Giggles, Stephen, Screemer, Sakkarin and Fynnius Fogg.
