Massive Glam Rock Box Set Coming In Rocktober

(Classic Rock) A five-disc box set celebrating the history of glam rock aims to tell the entire story of the movement through 91 tracks. "Oh Yes We Can Love: The History Of Glam Rock" will be released by Universal on October 28 but it contains much more than the usual suspects.

The label explains: "It isn't just Bowie, Bolan and Gary Glitter it explores a complete myriad of mutations from early origins in Chuck Berry and Little Richard to the contemporary evolution in The Darkness and Foxy Shazam, and everything in between.

"When Marc Bolan appeared on Top of the Pops in 1971, daubed in glitter, it permitted a generation of teenyboppers to begin playing with the idea of androgyny. It marked the dawning of a new era, a rejection of what had gone before.

"Arguably reaching its zenith in 1973 when the likes of Slade, Sweet and Suzi Quatro all had a run of chart-topping singles, the death-knell was eventually sounded by the rise of punk. Yet throughout the 80s and 90s and into the new millennium, bands have often drawn liberally from the lexicon of glam." More including the tracklist
