Gratuitous Sax & Senseless Violins

Sold out
Twenty-five years after it's original release, Sparks' 1994 studio album Gratuitous Sax & Senseless Violins is reissued on vinyl LP with newly remastered audio! Originally issued in November 1994 following an unprecedented six year hiatus, Gratuitous Sax & Senseless Violins marked a return to the commercial success that had alluded the band for much of the '80s, delivering the fan favorite single, "When Do I Get To Sing "My Way"." Their matchless flair for the avant garde and contemporary experimental ever present, Gratuitous Sax & Senseless Violins presented another reinvention in sound and style so typical of Sparks' uniquely extra-ordinary career. NME called the record one of "their finest moments, Q declared it a "triumph" and Melody Maker hailed it as "a precious box of jewels." Surprise and delight for the new unashamedly European dancefloor sound full of 'style and wit' was evident.
