Customer Review

on 11 December 2012
This has been one of my most played vinyls since I bought the original about a hundred years ago and it was time to get it on CD. If it appeared today as a completely new act, I'd still say "wow !" Their beginnings had been a bit less "wow" than this, but at the time there was a lot of very flowery hippie whimsical stuff about, and most of it was pretty poor in comparison to this. Bolan's great fan, John Peel has a guest spot on the album, reading a short story which was, and still is, a nice quirky surprise to unfamiliar ears. This album was the last of the largely acoustic work before Steve Took left, and the electric era began with Mickey Finn on "A Beard of Stars". I urge music fans with a curiosity for all things "different" to listen to this...the real Marc Bolan at his lyrical best. Forty three years on, it still sounds fresh.
