Sunken Rags (home demo, Glastonbury Fayre version)
Tyrannosaurus Rex had headlined at the very first Glastonbury in September 1970, as last minute replacements when The Kinks pulled out.
Released in April 1972, the triple “Glastonbury Fayre” album featured contributions from a host of contemporary stars, including the Grateful Dead, David Bowie, Hawkwind , Brinsley Schwarz, the Pink Fairies, Pete Townshend and Marc Bolan. Bolan’s contribution was a stereo home demo recording of a new song, “Sunken Rags”, a veiled dig at the music industry of the time. This is now re issued for the first time since 1972, on 7” orange vinyl. The B side features the T. Rex studio recording of the song, along with “Jitterbug Love”, both tracks appearing on the b side of “Children Of The Revolution”.
