A fabulously clean copy of T.Rex's 3rd. single for Regal Zonophone in unrepeatable condition., still housed in birth-sleeve.

Whilst "War Lord Of The Royal Crocodiles" was a track lifted from their 16 track 1969 album "Unicorn"; whilst the experimental, rather frantic "Pewter Suitor" was a stand alone single that was the springboard for Marc Bolan style that took shape during the early 70's as the name shortened to a more DJ friendly T.Rex and a calming down of his recording taking him into the realms of general public acceptance, subsequently a string of hits, when he moved into Glam Rock with wonderful success. Within all those hit recordings you can still hear traces from his prog rock days, mingled in.

Even inside the "Pewter Suitor" freestyle madness, there are snippets that transferred over to his later more successful sessions.

The importance of this listing lies in its standout condition. A listing for those of you OCD about what gains entry into their collections..

this one is a beauty that will never need an upgrade..
