Everyone who only ever heard Marc Bolan fronting the short-named band (T. Rex) would do themselves an enormous favour by listening to the four Tyrannosaurus Rex albums.
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.

Marc Bolan's accoustic band 'Tyrannosaurus Rex' is little known, with more emphasis on the 'glam rock' offerings of 'T Rex'. Records such as Electric Warrior and The Slider are, of course, fantastic but Bolan's early work should be given credit too.
'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.

* Stacey Grove
* Conesuala

If proof were needed that the times were less corporate and centralised in the sixties than now, one need only note that this second album by the not obviously commercial duo Tyrannosaurus Rex was released a mere three months after their snappily titled debut, My People Were Fair And Had Sky In Their Hair... But Now They're Content To Wear Stars On Their Brow. That totals 26 songs, plus a couple of stray singles, plucked from Marc Bolan's school notebook, all appearing in 1968, with plenty more lyrics saved for future use.

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.

I bought this when I was 15 in October 1968. I imagine that I was like most teenagers as I had spent the previous five years listening mainly to the Beatles, The Who, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Small Faces, Fleetwood Mac and The Move. Hearing this for the first time was absolutely stunning because it appeared to be music with no reference points apart from the fact that the inner LP sleeve helpfully said "File Under:Popular Music." Unlike the first album, "My People Were Fair.....", where Steve took wore sunglasses in the cover drawing and two songs Hot Rod Mamma (a re-write of Mystery Train?) and Mustang Ford were clearly prototype T. Rex, you just could not work out where this music had come from - it could have been anywhere or anytime. Added to this is the fact that Marc Bolan had written a really strong set of melodies with beautifully crafted and ingenious, percussive lyrics which means that, like so much of his work, it still sounds fresh, or at least, timeless, today. Among the great songs here are Stacey Grove, Consuela, Wind Quartets, Eastern Spell, Salamanda Palaganda, Oh Harley, The Friends and Trelawney Lawn. Tremendous stuff and this is a superb re-issue with extra tracks, fascinating sleeve notes and some rare photos. I love all Marc Bolan's output from The Wizard in 1965 to Hot George but, listening to this again, it is not hard to see why the underground music scene was so upset when he decide to focus more on commercial success and stop, as he put it, "bumbing along in dedicated obscurity." It is part of Bolan's strange genius that he managed to change so radically with his Cosmic Rock and Interstellar Soul yet somehow remain special and otherworldly. As for Prophets, Seers & Sages, anyone who loves the British 1960s underground, acid folk, or even Marc Bolan's later work should treat themselves and invest in this remarkable album.
