As with any larger than life Rock star or band, there are popular songs from them that other bands want to give their own unique signature to. There are no shortages of covers compilations. With the entry of Marc Bolan and his band alter-ego (not unlike Bowie and Ziggy in ways), T. Rex into the RnRHoF this year, it’s not any surprise that there are a few artists of note out there that want to be their style to the songs of Marc Bolan. With that…

On September 4, BMG will release a 26-track collection of covers featuring Bolan songs. But who gets to do what? That’s the interesting marriage of talents. This new set is being called Angelheaded Hipster: The Songs of Marc Bolan & T. Rex. This covers collection is being released on CD, DD, and vinyl LP.
