about

These demos reflect an eclectic period of Marc Bolan's career, to say the least. The critics that once adored T.Rex, tore Bolan's final three LPs to shreds. The soulful Bolan's Zip Gun, the eccentric Futuristic Dragon, and the "return to form" Dandy In The Underworld. With each passing year, however, time turns a kinder eye to the sounds of Marc's final years. Fans and critics alike admire how fresh these albums still sound.

Perhaps Marc was a bit more forward-thinking even during the so-called low point of his career than he was given credit for.

The demos for Zip Gun, Dragon, and Dandy have been assembled into one collection, as demos from that time period are few and far between. Most likely, there are several more demos in someone's personal collection that the world may never hear.

Some of these recordings have been made available as bonus tracks or in other bootleg releases. Here they are, adjusted to the proper tape speed, for your listening curiosity.
