Various Artists

Launched in the 1960’s The Spar Recording Company was best known as a “sound-alike” record company. They made the very best cover records in the business, in no small part thanks to the fabulous studio musicians and singers in Nashville at that time. If the original hit record had been recorded in Nashville, in many cases the Spar cover featured the same musicians as the original recording.

The list of studio musicians used at Spar reads like a “who’s who” of the Nashville recording scene in the 1960s, including “Boots Randolph, Mac Gayden, Wayne Moss, Charlie McCoy, Bill Pursell, Bob Moore, Norbert Putnam,David Briggs, Henry Strzelecki, Steve Bess, Kenny Buttrey, Hargus “Pig” Robbins, Jimmy Wilkerson and many more. These are the same people that played on recordings by Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, George Jones, Johnny Cash, Charlie Rich, Neil Young, Linda Ronstadt, Nancy Sinatra, Steve Miller, Joe Simon, Tony Joe White, The Monkees and too many others to list here.

This collection concentrates on the original recordings rather than the sound alikes. I think you´ll agree that these records stand up to most any other indie label releases of the classic sixties era. It´s the best music you never heard.......until now, that is.
