Reviews:
  • Abandoned Electrical
Yes but IMHO it's not as good a version as when Bowie redid it on 'Aladdin Sane'. Rumour has it that such was the rivalry at that time between Bolan and Bowie that the former deliberately under-cooked the guitar solo so as to sabotage the record.
  • Goldendragon
It's true: Marc Bolan is the lead guitarist on this early version of "The Prettiest Star". Nicholas Pegg confirms this in "The Complete David Bowie" (2004).
