T. Rex

Truck-On Tyke (50th Anniversary): Limited Vinyl 7" Picture Disc


Release Date: 17 November, 2023

As part of our T. Rex “1973” year campaign, alongside the “Whatever Happened To The Teenage Dream?” 5LP and 4CD box sets, and the “Songwriter: 1973” LP, Demon Records is issuing T. Rex’s 1973 singles as highly- collectable 7” picture discs, with photos from the Keith Morris archive.

The third release is “Truck On (Tyke)”, originally released in November 1973. It peaked in the UK charts at number 12, while the Top Ten featured Wizzard’s “I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day” and Mott The Hoople’s “Roll Away The Stone” and Slade’s “Merry Xmas Everybody” was already at Number 1. “Truck On (Tyke)” stayed in the charts for eleven weeks.

Neither “Truck On (Tyke)” or its B-side “Sitting Here” appeared on the “Zinc Alloy” album, released in early 1974.
