Terminal Jive

The ninth album of Sparks’ career, released in 1980 and produced by disco legend Giorgio Moroder. Cover pic by iconic Sixties photographer Gered Mankowicz. Followed up to 1979’s genre-defining ‘No.1 In Heaven’. Melody Maker rated it on its February 1980 release as: ‘Sparks’ best-ever album…an even more compelling venture than last year’s’. 3 bonus tracks include the single ‘When I’m With You’, which topped the charts in France for six weeks and sold 750,000 copies. It was Sparks’ best-selling 45 ever. Second single ‘Young Girls’ also features here in Single & Disco version. Booklet with authoritative and extensive liner notes written by respected Record Collector journalist Michael Heatley. Expertly remastered – superb sound - top quality reproduction. The best in the business!
