A tribute album to the late great glam rock icon Marc Bolan and his legendary
band T. Rex. The tribute was put together by producer Hal Willner who sadly
passed away on 7 April from coronavirus, only 64.

Released: 4 September 2020

Willner about this project: “I became immersed in this artist by listening to everything,
talking to Bolan experts and fans, researching his reviews and interviews. And I found that Bolan was hardly ever talked about as a ‘composer’. It was all about what a great rocker
he was, how innovative he was. I put him in the same pantheon as other composers that
I’ve explored before. So, the concept for the album became to show Bolan as a composer
with our typical cast of artists from different worlds that one rarely sees in the same place.”
