An explosion in a bubble-glam firework factory!
on 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!
