Handwritten music notes by T. Rex frontman Marc Bolan, signed twice in the third-person, “marc,” circa 1970, penned in various colored ballpoint on a lightly lined 8 x 5.5 sheet of notebook paper, which reads, in part (spelling retained): "Seagull women, acustics mixed down adt / reported co / marc tracked on change down… / mixed together lightly play gibson thru out / piano on C-C7-F-D7… / guitar solo / Fender / drum / — Pounded floor tom tom, deep sound / bass / marc tracked riff voices / on end drums… / marc little acustic riff once.” A struck-through section at the end: “First try Fuzz Hendrix sound.” In fine condition. Given Bolan's early death at the age of 29, autographic material from the glam rock pioneer remains scarce and highly sought-after. The song 'Seagull Woman' was the 12th track on T. Rex's self-titled 1971 album, their first since changing their name from Tyrannosaurus Rex. 'Seagull Woman' was the first song to feature Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman, aka 'Flo and Eddie,' singing backup vocals on a T. Rex song.
