VINE VOICEon 5 October 2001
Covering the first three albums Sparks recorded for Island (ie the ones that broke them in this country, between '74- '76), the brothers Mael (you know, the curly haired one and the stiff one behind the keyboard with THAT moustache) never let up for one second on any of the tracks featured here to bring you hard-hitting, quirky shards of catchy, brilliant, witty, eccentric pop music. When people tell you pop ain't as good as it used to be, they're referring to stuff like this. Be warned: if you buy this, you'll just end up buying the albums the tracks were lifted from anyway. Beautiful, grotesque, funny and scary all at the same time!

Simply put -if you like Sparks but do not want to buy all their early albums this is perfect - It has all their hits of the period and a few album tracks.It is also a good introduction to a band that is often forgotten when quirky,well produced,innovative music is discussed.Refreshing!

1974-76. There are no tracks on here from 1976! They released their 'Big Beat' album in 1976, containing
Singles 'Big Boy' and 'I Like Girls.' Label made a boo-boo ;-)

I had forgotten how many songs they had and enjoyed them all over again. I will be looking out for a later compilation.
