T. REX 'Boogies' Again On DVD, CD

According to Billboard.com, T. REX's Ringo Starr-directed 1972 film, "Born To Boogie", will make its DVD debut in May via Sanctuary. Not only will it be issued as a double-disc set loaded with previously unseen extras, but a double CD will also be released, with audio recently remastered by T. REX's longtime producer, Tony Visconti.

The entire project has been overseen by Rolan Bolan, the son of T. REX's late leader Marc Bolan, who died in a 1977 car accident.

The new DVD is bolstered with matinee and evening performances shot on March 18, 1972, as well as a pair of documentaries: "Cosmic Rock - When T. Rex Ruled the World" and "Re-Born To Boogie - Restoration Doco". Also included are commentaries and deleted scenes. Rolan says the latter "were all found in different locations. Like finding a treasure, it took time but once unearthed, things just kept on coming — some of the jams and different angles of the two concerts. You can see how the band really starts to jam and hit their high." Read more.
