Sparks – Self Titled (1972)

Sparks have been at it for over 35 years and they have released over 20 studio albums. The sound of Sparks is forever changing but one word that comes to my mind is….quirky. Formed in LA in the early 70’s, Sparks have dabbled in just about every genre of pop music. Dudes even recorded an album with Giorgio Mororder. But this particular album displays their fantastic glam-pop sensibilities. To me it kinda sounds like T-Rex being produced by the Beach Boys. Yup, Sparks’ catalog is gigantic but this is definitely a great starting point for your Sparks journey.

Ha….here’s a live vid of one of the tracks (though I suspect the are lip-syncing)
