DO NOT get me going on Sparks! I loved this group, but was not aware of them until summer 1977. Ron and Russ Mael are/were huge talents, despite their obscurity. I saw the album cover shown in this pic and simply HAD to buy the record... surely one of the best decisions I ever made besides my first Klaatu album and the Sensational Alex Harvey Band! I was always a fan of theatrical progressive rock with a quirky pop flair, and the aforementioned acts had it in spades. The first song I heard by Sparks was "Girls On the Brain"... that was the clincher! I was fortunate to have discovered them at all.
