        It is a Vamp stack behind him on the cover. I have seen a lot of live footage (I know someone who is a big fan). Those have the sound.

                Does anyone know what's the pedal in the middle? A fuzz?

                  I've been into T-Rex ever since I first hear "Bang a Gong" in '71 ('72?) and I bought "Electric Warrior" and "Slider" when they were first released. Never got to see a live performance, just a TV appearance on Don Kirshner's Rock Concert.

                  Back then I thought there was no one cooler than Marc Bolan. I still have "Electric Warrior" on vinyl and play it whenever I want to "get it on".

                      Great thread! I think Marc Bolan is the coolest.

                        doesn't anyone ever notice the similarities between get it on and it's only rock n roll by the stones?

                        Anyways, bolan was a cool dude with style and good gear.

                        The cover for electric warrior is a piece of art.

                        Listened to both EW and Television's Marquee Moon on vinyl tonight. good times

                            just by looking at "electric warrior" you know what your gonna get. kinda the same thing with lou reed's "transformer", timeless.

                                Got the Born to Boogie DVD.

                                Can't tell if it's the same one, but Marc's using a blue rectangular fuzzbox with his Vamp amp. It looks sort of like a Guyatone Fuzz, but the color looks a bit off. It might be the lighting. Somebody else mentioned he used some Swedish box for a while. Anybody know?
