4 stars This is an excellent sampler of Tyrannosaurus Rex, comprising the most important album tracks as well as all ( ! ) single A/B's and non-album tracks that have been released officially during Marc Bolan's lifetime As far as I know the "Sequel"-Label does not exist any more, but watch if you can get this - it serves well as both, an impressive overview and introduction to the pre-T.Rex-Era as well as a collector's gem for those who already have the 4 Original Albums of Tyrannosaurus Rex ! Honestly said: There's only one of my favourite tracks missing - "Nijinski Hind" from the "Unicorn"-Album, and - perhaps - the "Demon Queen"-out-take from the sessions to "Unicorn". No fillers. Absolutely great psychedelic folk-stuff with "Once upon the Seas of Abyssinia", "Chariots of Silk", "Iscariot", "Great Horse" & "Lofty Skies" as my personal outstanding cream-cuts ! If you get the chance don't miss it. It's a perfect compilation.

Highly recommended !
