From the Sparks – Propaganda Website:
Sparks lineup was as followed : Russell Mael on vocals, Ron Mael on keyboards, Norman “Dinky” Diamond on drums, bassist Ian Hampton (replacing Martin Gordon from the “Kimono My House” sessions) and guitarist Trevor White.
|Vinyl Lp front cover – 1975
The sound quality was fine – just a little bit of phasing in the beginning – but the record was really cheaply packaged (in the 70s’ most bootlegs were poorly annotated with photocopied covers). The album sleeve was a two colour paper insert slipped under the shrink wrap that enclosed the plain white cardboard album cover. The sheet featured a crude greeny xerox art with a photo of the Maels from the “Kimono My House” Lp inner sleeve with a hand-written track listing at the bottom. The disc got plain white blank labels.
