Well my soundcard is down, so I can't but I know the footage. Not Bolan at his peak, but do I like it? Yeah!

IIRC You saw Bolan on the early '76 tour when he looked like this. OK he was better live, and didn't pose quite so much as he did on the telly, but I'm sure you enjoyed it? I guess it depends whether we're judging this by the standards of 30 years or later or how we felt at the time?

I remember going to school the day after various Bolan performances, knowing that I was gonna get ribbed about last nights Bolanic posing on the box, but hey, so what. He brightened up the TV screen as far I was concerned, so who cares!

Admittedly he tested my patience from time to time, and I guess I could have mangaed without his To Know You... duet with Gloria, but even then we got a fab track in City Port on the b-side, so all was not lost!
