Sparkle Moore (born Barbara Morgan on November 6, 1936 in Omaha, Nebraska) is an American rockabilly singer who was influential as a pioneer of female rockabilly. Sparkle dressed in men's clothing, often including leather, and sported an Elvis-influenced pompadour. In 1956, she toured with Gene Vincent and was scheduled to perform on the Grand Ole Opry, which was subsequently cancelled due to illness. In 1957, Sparkle retired from music after becoming pregnant to concentrate on raising a family.
She cut the four self penned songs here for the FRATERNITY label in Cincinnati, Ohio.
'Gal pulls a fem Presley and belts out a cathchy rock'n'roll ditty with style and drive,' said Billboard magazine in Nov. 1956 when reviewing her debut 45.
