WTF: T. Rex, Tony Visconti, Donovan, etc. presents:

What the Fontaine?!WTF: T. Rex, Tony Visconti, Donovan, etc.

"What the Fontaine?!: You never know what you'll hear next on this fun mix of tunes from across the decades and musical genres."

Today's episode of Sound Opinions focused on the Tony Visconti-produced T. Rex album Electric Warrior.  It's been one of my favorite records since a friend turned me on to it back in the 80s.  So I thought I'd pick a few songs off it, plus covers, other Visconti-produced songs, some Donovan (closer to early Marc Bolan material), and similar sounds (including Brian Eno).  Tune in 9-11pm!
