T Rex The Slider

The Slider is a glam rock album by T. Rex, released in 1972. It became T. Rex's most popular album in the United States, reaching #17, featuring the singles "Telegram Sam" and "Metal Guru", though neither of these became hits in the U.S. ("Telegram Sam" only scraped to #67 and "Metal Guru" didn't chart). The much-parodied iconic cover was #37 in Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 100 greatest album covers.

The Slider came on the heels of the success of Electric Warrior.
