The Boogie Merchants: Marc Bolan

Caroline Boucher, Disc, 9 December 1972

CAROLINE BOUCHER takes a bleary, cross-eyed view of Marc Bolan who started life as a Tooting Mod, pro­gressed to a flower child, bopped as an elf and finally emerged as an electric rocker. This is a saga that started in Hackney and now rests in Marble Arch.

Total word count of piece: 1982
