Hi Ozzie
A tasty little bit of info here is that the vocalist for Sparkle was David Gibbons. David went on to front Sydney hard rock band Squeeze (who's main claim to fame is they were the reason the British band became UK Squeeze haha. But they did release an album & 4 singles on the short lived Laser Label thru RCA

Something you can add to ur write up. Now who has the album & singles I wonder??
