REWIND: T. Rex - 'Hot Love'


'Hot Love' is a majestic 1971 single by T. Rex,and was the group's first number one on the UK Singles Chart. It was also the first T. Rex single to feature both a bass guitar and drums.  Its success was propelled by a legendary Top of the Pops appearance, where Marc Bolan appeared in androgynous clothes with glitter around his eyes. Unusually, the song doesn't appear on any of the band's albums, further proving that Bolan's outfit were more of a singles act than a band renowned for their albums. 

Due to me not being born until the mid 80's, I wasn't aware of this song until 1998 when it appeared on the soundtrack album to the British movie 'The Acid House'.
