I've seen Sparks twice in concert in the last week, so it's only right to add them to Vinyl Shipwreck! This is their interesting Synth/Pop phase, in which they changed musical direction brilliantly through the aid of Giorgio Moroder. The title track is now legendary, but you'll also love "Tryouts For The Human Race" and "Beat The Clock", as well as the Blade Runner-esque "My Other Voice". Enjoy! Like always!

Hi Raph,

I just discovered your blog and must
say I love it! Soft Pop is tricky since it contains som much crap. But
your taste is impeccable. Keep it up!

A new fan,
John

I'll leave this comment here although it applies to your blog in general. This is wonderful from top to bottom. I've thoroughly enjoyed browsing and listening the last two days. Your choices are excellent. Your synopses are compact yet meaningful. It's crazy, but I refused to listen to much of this 30-40 years ago because it wasn't hip enough. I guess my it was I who wasn't hip enough. People take a journey to some really, really good music that is ripped to very high standars to match this blogger's taste in music from another time. Thank you so much!
