Sparky Grinstead "Won Out"

(Sparlene Records) If you like the Bomp! Records sound from the mid-‘70s (stripped-down straight-ahead power-pop) then you’ll love this lo-fi treasure from 1979.  Home recorded by Mr. Grinstead himself, with most of the non-keyboard instruments played by him as well, it’s a testament to the long-lasting appeal of heartfelt songs.  The original record goes for big bucks in collector circles, but thankfully you can find the re-release at CD Baby and other fine music outlets.
