AllMusic Review by

Raven's Solid Gold Rapid Action anthology collects 23 tracks from T. Rex and solo Marc Bolan. For a budget-looking compilation, SGRA delivers more than one would expect, with classic tracks like "Ride a White Swan," "Bang a Gong (Get It On)," "Children of the Revolution," "Jeepster," and "Telegram Sam." It's no 20th Century Boy: The Ultimate Collection, and certainly doesn't rival any of recently expanded editions of signature albums like Electric Warrior and Slider, but as an entry point for the uninitiated it's surprisingly effective.
