I got the bright idea in college to play random 45s on a radio show, which was of course a terrible idea, except that no one was listening anyway. And I did uncover T. Rex for myself in the process with this single and “Metal Guru.” A keeper for the great rogues gallery of the glammed that Bolan peopled with his internal peepers. The B side is the nonalbum “Cadillac,” which was forgettable in the bountiful days of Slider but might look like beautiful mana to someone who’s traversed the great wasteland of the ‘80s and ‘90s (and beyond) looking for anything gilded and edible. (For me, it stalled.) “Cadillac” was later added to the expanded reissue of The Slider, so the single’s value today is negligible (plus, those Reprise singles were just so darned ugly).
