‘There is so little time for us all; I need to be able to say what I want quickly and to as many people as possible.’ Marc Bolan

Mark Feld, like many another, got to make a record. He changed his name to Marc Bolan, released a flop of a record for Decca called The Wizard, and then, ever alert for a trend, joined the flower-power, LSD and mysticism cults that flowed around the Hippies of 1967. The songs, with their Tolkien-dense imagery and dream sequences, still evoke the indefatigable innocence and wonder of the Hippy days. At the height of his fame in the early to mid-1970s, Bolan outsold Jimi Hendrix and The Who with his band T-Rex. But his good looks, catchy songs, air of mystique and untimely death at the age of 29 meant interest in the star has never waned.
