An overstuffed collection of work from one of the coolest groups to record for Island Records
in the 70s – a group who had mainstream fame, but also managed to work in some pretty experimental modes to their music! Sparks came of age in the glam years, but always had a higher idea and larger musical vision – a bit like ELO when they really got going, and with a similar ear for mini-symphonies in pop music, but at a level that could still be pretty darn catchy and appealing to the growing guitar hero generation. This set features plenty of classics, and some well-chosen other moments too – and titles include "England", "Gone With The Wind", "Lost & Found", "Barbecutie", "Alabamy Right", "Amateur Hour", "Looks Looks Looks", "This Town Ain't Big Enough For Both Of Us", "Hasta Manana Monsieur", "Get In The Swing", "Never Turn Your Back On Mother Earth", "Tearing The Place Apart", "Intrusion/
Confusion", "Thank Got It's Not Christmas", and "Something For The Girl With Everything". 24 tracks in all!
