The duo of Marc Bolan and Steve Peregrine Took combined as Tyrannosaurus Rex for their first album ‘My people were fair and had sky in their hair …. But now they’re content to wear stars on their brows’ - possibly one of the longest album titles ever!! There is an almost Eastern sounding backing that Steve Took creates that allows Marc Bolan to warble his vocals, giving a medieval Arabian feel to the music. Bolan is playing power chords, but on an acoustic guitar, which makes this one of the most unique albums I have come across.
