All aboard for Middle Earth!,

This review is from: Prophets, Seers & Sages, the Angels... (Audio CD)
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.
