    Funny you mentioned that. "Elemantal Child" sounds like it.

      Recording engineer told me that when I asked how he got that sound. He said I would need a 10 series Neve console.

            I've seen old ads of Marc endorsing coloursound stuff.

              And yeah, I heard that Bolan used a Supa-Tonebender, as did Mick Ronson...

                          I did not know this, but allegedly, the guitar that Mike Oldfield used on the whole "Tubular Bells" album, was a blonde Telecaster formerly owned by Marc Bolan.

                          To create that bagpipe guitar sound, Olfield employed the slightly mysterious Glorfindel box. This was an effects unit, encased in a wooden box, which he got from David Bedford, who'd been given the box at a party by its creator, a stoned hippy. The box was extremely unreliable in its operation, rarely giving the same result twice
                          Tom Newman said of Mike and the Glorfindel box: "he had this awful home-made electronics box full of horrid transistors, covered in faders and knobs which he called a 'Glorfindel'. This was a piece of plywood filled with junk that he could plug his guitar into and sometimes a sound would come out. Sometimes the sound was good, but most of the time it was terrible.

                              The Blue Box stuff was particularly cool, see "Life's A Gas".

                                Cool! So that's the Blue Box. Never tried one.
