Tyrannosaurus Rex – Eastern Spell (1968)

By one of the flukes of buying records without guidance during formative years, I actually heard Tyrannosaurus Rex before T.Rex, and in some ways I still prefer this incarnation of Bolan.  Basically in description, everything about them seems just plain wrong: folk songs inspired by Tolkien with fast hand-drumming and male vocals that sound like an old woman.  Yet it sounds just. . . so right.  Bolan’s melodic tendencies were never stronger.  [Tyrannosaurus Rex is featured in more subdued form here in a Miniatures mix at Musicophilia.]
