Easy as picking foxes from a tree

Now here's a great single from 1972 that comes with its own built in rock anecdote. It would appear that Marc Bolan saw into the future and predicted the number plate of the purple Mini his girlfriend would plough into a tree on Barnes Common - in five years time.

T Rex: Solid Gold Easy Action. Bolan's epitaph.

  1. Marc at his peak. I truly never knew about the number plate. Fortean.

  2. Allegedly Bolan himself wasn't mad-keen on this tune (though if that was the case, why did he choose to release it?) and he didn't play it at the show I attended in December 1972, despite it being his current single at the time.
