Big Stir Records is thrilled to announce the addition of Orange County, CA pop legends SPARKLE*JETS U.K. to our roster with their first new release in 18 years: a limited edition colored 7” vinyl single that's of unique significance to both the band and the label. It's a pair of beautiful and emotional covers related to BSR's namesake Big Star – the band's classic “The Ballad of El Goodo” and the beloved Chris Bell solo cut “You and Your Sister” – both recorded at Ardent Studios in Memphis with Jody Stephens on drums for the A side. Kenny Howes (yeah, that Kenny Howes) donated his guitar skills (and guitars) to the session as well.
