T.Rex, Top 10, Top 10 Tuesday

T.Rex were formed in 1967 by Singer-Songwriter, and Guitarist, Marc Bolan. The Band was initially called Tyrannosaurus Rex, and released 4 Psychedelic Folk Albums under the name. In 1969, Bolan began to shift from the Band’s early Acoustic Sound to an Electric one. The next year, he shortened the Band’s name to T.Rex. Soon after, T.Rex became a commercial success as a part of the emerging Glam Rock Scene.

From 1970 to 1973, T.Rex encountered an enormous following and popularity in the UK. They had a run of 11 Singles in the UK Top 10, and scored 4 UK # 1 Hits. The 1971 Album, Electric Warrior, received critical acclaim as a pioneering Glam Rock Album. It reached # 1 in the UK. The 1972 follow-up, The Slider, entered the Top 20 in the US.

In 1977, Marc Bolan died in a car accident several months after releasing T.Rex’s final Studio Album, Dandy in the Underworld.

For me, my introduction to Marc Bolan and T.Rex came via Duran Duran, and one of the off-shoots some of the members did with Power Station. Power Station’s Cover Version of T.Rex’s “Bang A Gong (Get It On)” got my attention, and as with most of my Music Discoveries, had me digging for more. Paired up with my Love of David Bowie, my love affair with Glam Rock Music began.

Later, in the very late 80’s and early 90’s, I frequented a variety of Underground Clubs in Hollywood, one of them being Sunday Night’s Club 1970. My love of Marc and T.Rex and all things Glam grew exponentially, and has stuck with me through the years.

I’ve had the pleasure of Listening to T.Rex on Vinyl, Cassette, CD, Digital Streaming, and most recently on 8-Track Tape. My Favorite? It has got to be a tie of Vinyl and 8-Track. I only wish I had a Music-Time-Travel machine that I could go back and see T.Rex play live.

Without further ado, here is a carefully selected Top 10 Best T.Rex Songs List for Top 10 Tuesday.
