Background: Released in 1970, T. Rex was the fourth album by the band of the same name, who had previously called themselves Tyrannosaurus Rex.
The album reached #7 on the UK album chart and #188 on the U.S. chart.
Tyrannosaurus Rex’s transformation from oracles of U.K. hippie culture to boogie-friendly rock stars began with the album A Beard of Stars, released in early 1970 when the band picked up electric instruments, and by the time the year was out, Marc Bolan had pared their name down to the more user-friendly T. Rex and dropped their first album with the new moniker. …If Bolan was reaching for the big time with T. Rex, he also sounds like he was letting out the rock star that had always lurked within him, and there isn’t a moment here that doesn’t sound like he’s singing from his heart and soul. T. Rex is the quiet before the storm of Electric Warrior, and it retains a loopy energy and easy charm that makes it one of Bolan’s watershed works.
