Solid gold easy action

Song written by Marc Bolan in August 1972 during a session in which his band T-Rex recorded two singles, this track and its predecessor 'Children of the revolution'. The song was written within minutes, when band members Bill Legend and Steve... were playing around with a shuffle beat. Marc asked them to keep playing, scribbled down some words and 'Sold gold easy action' was born. The single reached number 2 in the UK in December of that year.

Live performances

Kim Wilde performed the song live three times during the second leg of her Perfect Girl tour, on October 31, 2007 and 2 and 4 November 2007.
