‘Oh Yes We Can Love: The History Of Glam Rock’ Announced by Universal

‘Oh Yes We Can Love: The History Of Glam Rock’ Box-Set Announced by Universal -

The storied history of the glam rock movement will be celebrated with a new five disc box set which “aims to tell the entire story through 91 tracks.”

Entitled ‘Oh Yes We Can Love: The History Of Glam Rock’ the new set will explore a complete myriad of mutations from early origins in ChucK Berry and Little Richard to its contemporary evolution in the Darknes and Foxy Shazam.

Universal, who will released the set on October 28th, explains:

“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.”

‘Oh Yes We Can Love: The History Of Glam Rock’ includes a 100-page booklet containing rare single sleeves complete with glam rock trivia plus an essay by rock journalist Barney Hoskyns, who wrote Glam! the definitive history of the era.
