Marc Bolan

Alright, so we all know Marc Bolan was a bit of a nutball, and we take the glamrock glitter of T-REX for granted; but in 1974, he put out this awesomely original folk-blues album called The Beginning of Doves, which mostly features him solo on an accoustic guitar. In interviews, Devendra Banhart always cites these extremely obscure or South American influences -- but I am absolutely positive that one day, long ago, he heard this album and thought, 'I am going to sing just like that man...'
