'Beginning of Doves' first released as a 'Bolan Solo' album has been re-released with additional tracks and although it still says 'Marc Bolan' on the cover, the liner notes written by Mark Paytress do give credit where it is due. Therefore finally after twenty eight years Steve Peregrin Took is listed as being on many of the tracks.
Mark Paytress's Book, originally published under the title 'Twentieth Century Boy' in 1992 will be published as a new expanded version containing an extra 50,000 words (and that is a lot of words!) retitled "The Rise and Fall of a 20th Century Super Star". Worth a read for all people interested in Steve Took (The Tyrannosaurus Rex years) and indeed anyone who wants an unbiased and often very interesting read regarding Mr. Bolan are urged to buy a copy.
This book, and the author Mark have already been criticised in a 'leading Bolan fanzine' and elsewhere by 'some' Bolan 'fans' who like to read 'nice' things about their 'hero'. Any sensible person will, I'm sure take this as a personal recommendation by these people that it is very worth reading! The truth is the truth. Whether it is 'nice' or not. The collective events in the life of anyone add up to a clear picture of that person (any person). To deny the existence of a large 'chunk' of someone's life is niave and self-deluding.
