Sparks box looks very interesting. How do they sound?

Koos,
the sound quality is top notch, I mean the originals are preserved with just a bit of volume uplift and minimal/unnoticeable EQ, basically no compression/depression/maximization or other gimmick.
They got my attention in '74 with Propaganda, the Radio Luxembourg charts, I remember the fast speaking presenter sounding more like a horse race call.
A group like no other, although musically competing with Queen at times.
However, this is the first time I have the complete collection.
Cheers,
Cool

Funny that you make the comparison with Queen which at that time was my favourite rockgroup (until 1977). I think you are right to say that Sparks musically competed with some of the Queen compositions but imo Sparks' music remained more interesting over the years. Still today surprisingly and very dynamic!

Where did you find and order the Sparks box?

I got them of eBay, it is the only place box sets can be bought unless you walk into a Disk Union store somewhere in Japan.
Sparks came out in 2009 and sold very quickly, just checking now on eBay there is not one single mini LP Cd for sale let alone boxes, so people must hang onto them.
