Also present are songs from the Joe Boyd sessions, Tony Visconti home demos and more. Digitally remastered edition of this album from Marc Bolan's early version of T. Rex. Originally released in 1968 and produced by Tony Visconti, the first Tyrannosaurus Rex album MY PEOPLE WERE FAIR AND HAD SKY IN THEIR HAIR positioned the former Mod face and beatnik Marc Bolan right at the heart of the burgeoning underground/hippie subculture. Along with his multi-instrumentalist partner Steve Peregrin Took, Marc married strange, flight-of-fancy lyrics with a new folky and percussive sound on early Bolan classics like 'Child Star', Strange Orchestras' and 'Frowning Atahuallpa (My Inca Love)' - the latter of which even contained a children's story for Marc by DJ John Peel.;Track List:1.
