1970s

3AM Eternal: Electric Light Orchestra “Auntie (Ma-Ma-Ma Belle) (Takes 1 and 2)” (1973)

elo on the third dayThis song, which compiles the first two takes of the song “Ma Ma Ma Belle,” stem from the sessions for Electric Light Orchestra‘s third album, On The Third Day. What makes these outtakes notable is that the guitarist on this glam-rock number is none other than T. Rex frontman Marc Bolan. (Ignore, if you will, the additional tag at the end of the song; it’s lovely, but an unnecessary addition by the video’s creator.)
