Halfnelson – Halfnelson
Bearsville / Warner Brothers 1971

In de categorie oude popplaten vandaag het debuutalbum
van de Sparks. In den beginne noemden ze zich nog Halfnelson,
de naam die al snel om commerciele redenen werd veranderd
in Sparks. Alleen dit eerste album is onder deze naam. Gepro-
duceerd door Todd Rundgren en een elpee die de broertjes
Russell en Ron Mael weinig tot geen succes bracht. Verder
met Earle en Jim Mankey en Harley Feinstein. Zelf heb ik
er altijd met plezier naar geluisterd ..

In our popmusic category today the debut album of the Sparks.
Back in 1971 they called themselves Halfnelson, a name they
changed in Sparks very quickly for commercial reasons. Only
the first album was released under this name. Produced by
Todd Rundgren and an elpee that didn’t bring fortune and
fame to the brothers Russell and Ron Mael. Also with Earle
and Jim Mankey and Harley Feinstein. Personally
I have always enjoyed it ..
