Before Bolan learned to boogie he could write a melody that stood head and shoulders above those of his his peers. Prophets, Seers and Sages, while being a vast improvement upon its predecessor ('My People Were Fair.........') was but a muscle-flexing for the majesty that was to be 'Unicorn' (which begat the glorious 'A Beard of Stars').
But those melodies! Those vocal arrangements! Those orchestrations (mostly finger-clicks, claps and stuff)! Listen to 'Trelawny Lawn' and 'Salamander Palagander' and feel yourself falling under the spell of an innocence that is greatly missed.
'Prophets' is a musically accomplished record with a strong sense of 'other world' magic. Old fashioned instruments and Tolkien/Narnian inspired lyrics really do put you in mind of noble warriors, wise sages, elves dancing in groves and kings in their timbered halls!
This record is a lot of fun but is also credible. The music and lyrics are perfectly devised and crafted. Prophets, as an example of Bolan's early work, is like nothing we will ever hear again.

Unsurprisingly, it sold less well than the first to an audience anyway only recently weaned from singles onto albums, but remained a firm favourite over the years, and has been re-issued on CD several times since its first digital release in 1985, surely exceeding the expectations of its makers.
Their first single, Debora, had not appeared on My People Were Fair, which had followed it, as that was the practice of the time, but having been a surprise hit and still fresh in people's minds, was included in a completely newly recorded version which loops in on itself one minute and forty seconds through and plays out backwards through the second half, hence its new palindromic title, Deboraarobed.
One Inch Rock, the follow up single and a slightly bigger hit, was also not included on the new album (though was re-recorded in an electric version for the album T Rex), but has been added here as a bonus track in mono (it can be found in stereo on Essential Collection) along with an alternative, slower stereo version.Read more ›
