The album contained electric reworkings of two old Tyrannosaurus Rex songs, one of which, "The Wizard", was originally recorded even earlier than Bolan's pre-T. Rex band John's Children. The second was an electric version of the second Tyrannosaurus Rex single, "One Inch Rock", with an intro of scat-singing by Bolan and Finn. The remaining short songs, however, were new material. The album was bookended by a track called "The Children of Rarn", which was part of a longer piece known as "The Children of Rarn Suite". Marc Bolan – vocals, guitar, bass, organ. Mickey Finn – drums, bass, Pixiphone, vocals.

The first (but certainly not the last) of the compilations issued in the wake of T. Rex's . chart breakthrough, Bolan Boogie was also many of the band's new fans' first chance to acquaint themselves with all that Marc Bolan had done in the past - a point which the compilers certainly kept in mind.

But Marc Bolan, the man who’d made it, knew better. Oh, come on, he told Record Mirror. I’ve always been a wriggler. The record in question, Electric Warrior, had been released a fortnight earlier. It would be the UK N. album well over Christmas and into February 72, staying in the chart for almost a year. It nudged the US Billboard Top 30 and even gave Bolan a US Top 10 hit with Get It On; actually, Bang A Gong (Get It On), to avoid confusion with the forgotten jazz-dance Chase hit Get It On, and not because, as is often stated, the Americans were prudish. In Britain, Get It On and Jeepster were all-conquering follow-ups to Hot Love. Something about the Broadway boogie around him saw Bolan emphasising cars and girls. He was a whirl of enthusiasm. I wish Otis Redding was around! he yelled, never short on bravado.
