T.Rex - 'Get It On' (Bang A Gong)

Hey Cats

No one knows exactly when this promo film was made, there is no mention of it in the excellent book by Cliff McLenehan - A Chronology - which is a day by day account of Marc's life!

Although this was a Uk No.1 smash in July 1971 it is assumed this promo was made by T.Rex's European label and judging by the confidence of the performance could have been shot during the short European tour of January 1972. In America the song was called 'Bang A Gong'. A video for 'Jeepster' was also shot at the same time and again is amazing.

Unlike 'Hot Love' 'Get It On' made it onto the next T.Rex album 'Electric Warrior' released in September 1971. If you only ever buy one T.Rex album make sure it's this one!

Apart from promo films made by The Beatles and The Stones, T.Rex can probably claim to be the 3rd act ever to make videos!

This video and 'Jeepster' are now available to buy on the DVD 'The Final Word' which is an amazing documentary and includes extra footage of Tony Visconti dissecting the recording process for 'Ride A White Swan' and 'Jeepster'!

It's now easy to keep a little Marc in your heart.
