Sometime back in the early 1990s, an all-female UK band announced to the music press that 'before us, women in rock were only allowed to be backing singers'.Tell that to Sparkle Moore. Born Barbara Morgan in Omaha. Nebraska, in 1939, nicknamed Sparkle after a character in the Dick Tracy comic strip, this blonde-haired, sharp-dressed multi-instrumentalist wrote, played and sang her own material, just as the first wave of rock'n'roll carried all before it in I 956.As she later explained, 'I liked a lot of echo and I liked a lot of screaming. I wanted things to be excising- wild: She cut the four self-penned songs here for the Fraternity label in Cincinnati. Ohio, backed by their regular label house band, Dan Belloc and His Orchestra.
'Gal pulls a fern Presley and belts out a catchy rock'n'roll ditty with style and drive.' said Billboard magazine approvingly in November 1956 when reviewing her debut 45, Skull and Cross Bones'/'Rock-it-Bop. Journalists and music business PR people had a habit in those days of labelling any woman in rock'n'roll as the 'Female Elvis' — other candidates given the title included Janis Martin, Charline Arthurdean Chapel and Alit Lesley. Sparkle certainly looked and sounded like the real deal, and was also sometimes promoted as the 'Female James Dean'. She played on bills with stars such as Gene Vincent. the Wilburn Brothers and Ernest Tubb, and there was even talk at one stage of a 1957 package tour of Brazil, but following the release of her second single, Killer b-w Tiger, she retired from the rock business in order to start a family.
