By 1973's Tanx, the T. Rex hit-making machine was beginning to show some wear and tear, but Marc Bolan still had more than a few winners up his sleeve. It was also admirable that Bolan was attempting to broaden the T. Rex sound – soulful backup singers and horns are heard throughout, a full two years before David Bowie used the same formula for his mega-seller Young Americans…

By 1973's Tanx, the T. Rex hit-making machine was beginning to show some wear and tear, but Marc Bolan still had more than a few winners up his sleeve. It was also admirable that Bolan was attempting to broaden the T. Rex sound – soulful backup singers and horns are heard throughout, a full two years before David Bowie used the same formula for his mega-seller Young Americans. However, Tanx did not contain any instantly recognizable hits, as their past couple of releases had, and the performances were not quite as vibrant, due to non-stop touring and drug use. Despite an era of transition looming on the horizon for the band, tracks such as "Rapids," "Highway Knees," "The Street & Babe Shadow," and "Born to Boogie" contain the expected classic T. Rex sound.

Before T. Rex assaulted the world with their glam rock party in the early '70s, there was the folk duo Tyrannosaurus Rex. Although both bands were fronted by flamboyant singer/guitarist/songwriter Marc Bolan, the earlier outfit was the polar opposite of the style of music that would later become synonymous with Bolan. Tyrannosaurus Rex originally formed in September of 1967 as a duo after Bolan split from his previous band, John's Children. Joining Bolan in the band was percussionist/bongo player Steve Peregrin Took, a gentleman that Bolan named after a character in The Lord of the Rings novel series. Bolan was so infatuated with Rings that most of the subject matter in Tyrannosaurus Rex songs came directly from the books as well.

By the time the original Tanx album appeared in early 1973, the critical consensus was that Marc Bolan had shot his commercial bolt – and history has not broken its back to prove otherwise. The album's restoration to its full sonic and contextual glory on Edsel's 1995 reissue was the first step towards its rehabilitation; this CD, compiled from the alternate versions and demos behind the original LP, completes the process. As with other albums in the alternate series, it is an occasionally scrappy, scratchy listen.

Initially a British folk-rock combo called Tyrannosaurus Rex, T. Rex was the primary force in glam rock, thanks to the creative direction of guitarist/vocalist Marc Bolan (born Marc Feld). Bolan created a deliberately trashy form of rock & roll that was proud of its own disposability…

Originally released back in the very first flash of T.Rexstacy, in an age (hard to imagine now) when the shelves did not overflow with Bolanic compilations, the irresistibly budget-priced Fly Back: Best of Marc Bolan & T. Rex was many newfound fans' first exposure to the music Marc Bolan was making before he hit fame – and what a shock it was. Drawing from all four Tyrannosaurus Rex albums released between 1968-1969, plus a couple of unissued outtakes and single-only sides, Fly Back remains one of the most inspired, and illustrative, of all the collections out there. From the psychedelic folk of "Debora" to the guitar extravaganza "Elemental Child," from the proto-rock of "King of the Rumbling Spires" to the sweet insanity of "Strange Orchestras," Fly Back touches upon all the duo's musical facets, while weaving some of Bolan's most compulsive melodies into the framework, "Child Star," "Lofty Skies" and "Stacey Grove" included.
