It was a major blow to me, whilst compiling this set, that I lost the T Rex recordings. I already knew that I couldn't get Bowie, how could I have a 'glam rock' set without him OR Marc Bolan? The problem was quickly solved by making a fast deal with the BBC. Not always the easiest companies to work with, I mangaed to find a really helpful contact at their head office, who fast tracked the license for the tracks I needed. Unfortunately the contact left the BBC within a few months, and it once again, became increasingly difficult to get anything from them for future collections. Shame, they had a huge catalogue at the time that was being under-used, and RD management didn't seem to want to 'waste time' on getting another deal in place.
One of my favourite packs, musically, the pack featured several rare b-sides, and I still have the 'boot' that was used for the advert! (see below)
