Must admit i did enjoy quite a lot of the 45's he released and even went so far as to buy the Electric warrior album. Thing is, it sidn't really reward repeated listening. Great for the first or even third time you heard it and by then you'd had more than a sufficiency

Agree with Tommo. 21st Century Boy. Classic intro not dated after 35-40 years.

This is a rocking song by Electric Light Orchestra in 1973, guess who made the fantastic riff? That's right - Marc Bolan.

New York City was my fave in the day, not one of his biggest hits, but just swings so well.
