RARE/2HAND VINYL LP ON ISLAND 1972

Island ILPS 9445 made in England with lyric inner sleeve.

Vinyl EX. Cover VG+.

Most of this album finds Sparks doing what they do best: spewing out clever, mile-a-minute lyrics over solid-rocking accompaniment (this time, provided by a superior group of studio musicians). Drummer Hilly Michaels and guitarist Jeffrey Salen lend the Mael brothers' songs considerable rock & roll authority. Standouts include the opening blast, "Big Boy" (which was featured in the film Rollercoaster), the propulsive "Fill-Er-Up," and the falsetto-delivered proclamation "I Like Girls," apparently a leftover from their previous album, Indiscreet.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sparks_%28band%29
