Микс – Sparks-Sparks (Halfnelson) 1971YouTube.
Halfnelson is the debut album by the Los Angeles rock band Halfnelson. The band renamed to Sparks and the album was reissued a year later as an eponymous album by Sparks. Halfnelson was initially released on Bearsville Records in 1971. Shortly after the release of the album the group changed their name to 'Sparks'. The album was then re-released by Bearsville Records in 1972 as Sparks.
The following is a comprehensive discography of Sparks, an American rock and pop music band formed in Los Angeles in 1970 by brothers Ron (keyboards) and Russell Mael (vocals), initially under the name Halfnelson. Best known for their quirky approach to songwriting, Sparks' music is often accompanied by cutting and acerbic lyrics, and an idiosyncratic stage presence, typified in the contrast between Russell's wide-eyed hyperactive frontman antics and Ron's sedentary scowling.
Sparks is an American pop and rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1972 by brothers Ron (keyboards) and Russell Mael (vocals). The duo formed in 1968 under the name Halfnelson. Known for their quirky approach to songwriting, Sparks' music is often accompanied by intelligent, sophisticated, and acerbic lyrics, and an idiosyncratic, theatrical stage presence, typified in the contrast between Russell's animated, hyperactive frontman antics and Ron's deadpan scowling.

Album Name Halfnelson. Лейблы Bearsville Records.
Halfnelson decided that a demo album should be professionaly recorded and for that reason, the band badly needed a rhythm section. A drummer was found in the person of rock-critic John Mendelsohn and a bass player was added, named Surly Ralph Oswald. It is however, very likely that this bass player was found after the recordings for this demo had already begun and that most of the bass lines were actually played by Russell Mael, who, even nowadays claims that he started off as a bass player. For real Sparks collectors, this album is indispensable. If you're not too fond of any pre-Moroder recordings, you shouldn't bother. How and when this album has ever been rediscovered, I do not know. Halfnelson has been re-released numerous times since 1972. The most recent re-issue was produced by Rhino Encore and released in 2008.
