EDITORS’ NOTES

In the late '60s, Tyrannosaurus Rex were a twee psychedelic folk duo led by elfin singer/songwriter Marc Bolan, a former mod and occasional male model. After four albums of bongo-driven acoustic guitar jams, Bolan put on eyeliner, plugged in, and shortened the band name. Quickly becoming the face of glam-rock, T.Rex ruled the singles charts with Bolan's quirky mix of Eddie Cochran and J.R.R. Tolkien for several years in the early '70s. But that was just the beginning. Get to know the music of this legendary band through our career-spanning playlist
