After leaving [a=John's Children] in 1967, [a=Marc Bolan] forms the acoustic duo Tyrannosaurus Rex with percussionist [a=Steve Peregrin Took]. The duo signs a recording deal with producer [a=Tony Visconti], for release on EMI's [l=Regal Zonophone] label. Following a poorly received US tour, Steve Took leaves and is replaced by [a=Mickey Finn (3)].

After a while Tony Visconti shifts label outlet for his productions from Regal Zonophone to [l=Fly Records (3)] in UK. After much urging from his producer, Marc Bolan abbreviates his group name to [a=T. Rex] and expands to a quartet with the addition of [a=Steve Currie] on bass and [a=Bill Legend] on drums.
