Singles & Ep Reviews

Singles in all guises this issue, from picture discs to expansive 10” EPs. Head-turners include Kim Lenz’s first vinyl single for 21 years, 50s heroine Sparkle Moore, unearthed Merseybeat R&B from 1965 and prime rock from Germany and Spain

Sparkle Moore



This gathers together the only two singles ever released by Nebraskan rockabilly hellcat Sparkle Moore and presents them on a 10” EP, with sleeve notes from author and musician Max Décharné. Sparkle was lazily labelled as the ‘Female Elvis’, but was a unique talent with a rowdy, yet bubbly, vocal style. Side one features her debut 1956 single for Fraternity Records, Rock-a Bop/Skull And Crossbones, while side two offers polished follow-up, Killer/Tiger. Rescuing this quartet of classics from obscurity is rock’n’roll archaeology at its finest.

About Vintage Rock

'Maybe Tomorrow?’ No, the new issue of Vintage Rock is out now and stars... Billy Fury! Our 20-page special includes an interview with his latter-day backing band Fury’s Tornados and Vince Eager recalls his part in the landmark new album ‘The Symphonic Sound Of Fury’. We also hear from The Beach Boys’ Mike Love and Bruce Johnston about how the legendary band made the transition from doo-wop-influenced rock’n’rollers to symphonic pop geniuses. Our Classic Album is ‘In Style With The Crickets’, an amazing triumph following the tragic death of Buddy Holly. We talk exclusively to Gary ‘US’ Bonds about his early days cutting hot R&B in Virginia, his comeback with Bruce Springsteen and his return to live shows. With a new CD and biography released, we revisit the career of Wee Willie Harris, British rock’n’roll’s strangest and smallest star. PLUS! We talk to the folks building and revamping 50s Jukeboxes, we hand-pick Sam Cooke’s Top 20 hits and speak to Jerry Lee’s sister Linda Gail Lewis. In our live reviews, we head to the Wildest Cats In Town weekender where Charlie Gracie reined supreme, plus there’s a memorable doo-wop reunion in London. And we visit the world of Rockabilly-Radio online.
