THE HIP/HIPSVILLE 29 B.C.
7" (JUKEBOX MUSIC FACTORY)
The Sparkles were associated with the garage-band and psychedelic rock scene of 1960s Texas, as epitomized by their classic underground hit 'No Friend Of Mine'. The line-up changed few times before 1962, and Stanley Smith finally recruit Harold "Lucky" Floyd (drums and vocals), Donnie Roberts (guitar) and Bobby Smith (bass). 'The Hip' was an immediate hit in Austin and extremely popular within the fraternity scene at the University of Texas. On their final single, 'Hipsville 29 B.C.', for Hickory Records, The Sparkles once again entered rocky waters.
