Neil Young, backstage at the Electric Factory, Philadelphia, by Joel Bernstein. The uncropped version of this photo was used in the gatefold of After the Gold Rush, the #20 best-selling US album of 1971.
Late period T.Rex, long past the halcyon days. From 1971 to 1973, Marc Bolan could do no wrong, releasing a whole bunch of classic singles and at least one great album, Electric Warrior. Towards the end of 1973, he started to lose the magic, and like most people, that’s more or less where I stop paying attention. But that’s not to say there aren’t still some wonderful songs hiding in relative obscurity.
