The complete remastered acoustic demos from 1966. Compiled from tapes originally stolen from Marc and Gloria’s home and recently repatriated. Limited pressing of 700 copies in retro flip back sleeve with printed inner bag. Liner notes by Andrew J Gardner (The Bolan Society / Warrior Music) and brand new unique LP design by Les Clark, remastered by Anders Peterson at Ghost Sound Sweden. Includes very rare tracks recorded as Toby Tyler early in 1965. Reality and A Soldiers Song are included on an album for the first time ever!

Many of the later acoustic demos give more than a nod towards the sound of the Tyrannosaurus Rex material that would be recorded and produced by Tony Visconti a year or so later.
