Tyrannosaurus Rex, the forerunner of the band, T. Rex, will be getting three of their most prominent albums on newly remastered and expanded Deluxe Edition. Tyrannosaurus Rex formed back in 1967, several years before Marc Bolan took the shortened T. Rex to greater heights of fame. The band, with Steve Took, gained a modest level of success with their music offerings that included My People Were Fair And Had Sky In Their Hair…But Now They’re Content To Wear Stars On Their Brows (1968), Prophets, Seers & Sages: The Angels Of The Ages (1968), Unicorn (1969), and A Beard Of Stars (1970).

In March of 2014, A Beard Of Stars had already seen expansion and remastering with a Deluxe Edition. Now, to complete the Tyrannosaurus Rex legacy, 2CD Deluxe Edition sets will be completed for the above mentioned titles on January 26.

This will be a great opportunity for the die-had T. Rex fan to complete the band’s earlier incarnation in their libraries, beefing them up with extras. The extras, which include takes, BBC tracks, interviews, live cuts, and demos, truly exhaust the availability of materials for each of these three sets.
