They would go on to sing on most of the group's subsequent string of hits. The album contained electric reworkings of two old Tyrannosaurus Rex songs, one of which, "The Wizard", was originally recorded even earlier than Bolan's pre-T. Rex band John's Children. The second was an electric version of the second Tyrannosaurus Rex single, "One Inch Rock", with an intro of scat-singing by Bolan and Finn.
The remaining short songs, however, were new material. The album was bookended by a track called "The Children of Rarn", which was part of a longer piece known as "The Children of Rarn Suite". A Tolkienesque children's story in several movements, it was recorded only in demo form at the time, although instrumentation was added posthumously by Visconti for its release on the compilation The Words and Music of Marc Bolan. The album was released on 18 December by Fly and Reprise.

But deep into the following year, Bolan and producer Tony Visconti were recording further sketches for the finished item; a demo, ambitiously retitled "Children of Rarn Suite," was prepared by Visconti following Bolan's death for inclusion on 's Words and Music compilation. Heavily overdubbed by Visconti and possibly appearing somewhat more cluttered than Bolan himself might have envisaged, the minute piece is nevertheless a magical piece of work, as ambitious as Bolan ever said it was and as successful as he must have dreamed it would be.
Bolan made several returns to the project during the '70s -- excerpts from a era reconstruction were exhumed for the relevant volumes of the Unchained outtakes series, while Bolan biographer Mark Paytress notes a studio rehearsal tape which draws the saga out over 40 minutes, but which was only highlighted for the box set A Wizard, a True Star.
