Chariots of Silk
by T. Rex

The toad road licked my wheels like a sabre
Winds of the marsh lightly blew
Stone jars stacked with stars on her shoulders
Hunters of pity she slew.

Chariots of silk she rode
Stallions of gold she owned.

A mad Mage with a maid on his eyebrows
Hunteth the realm for a God
Who could teach him the craft of decanting
The glassy entrails of a frog.

The Bard of my birth with his ballet
Walked the wild worlds in the chase
For the black chested canary
Who as a moose can sing bass.

just love this simple little song, just lovely. marc really was a genius......


Some of his Tyrannosaurus delivery truly is at the top of the food chain; I feel like this is my favorite pre-T.Rex track. The slurring and garbling is absolutely splendid, then he way way overdoes the "s" in "the black-chested canary" so freakin' bad

A classic Album...for me Bolan at his best...with the help of Steve Peregrine Took..great combo..

Tod Kohl

That whole album was amazing...pity nobody heard it.

Fred Ceely

This early material is much better than it gets credit for. I had read about this act, and bought the LP on spec, a rare occurrence for me back then, having a long "to buy" list and little money, beyond that required for the necessities, so to speak. I still love it.

Doran Jensen

The music of the Eldar.

Thomas Huth
