The Sparks

Della 1214 – Don’t Forget The Girl Back Home/Give It Up Baby

Hines & Dave Bonds share composer credits on this.  For the New Orleans stuff recorded at Cosimo Matassa’s, Bonds, Hines & Al White were the main people involved.  Bonds was guitarist with the Hi-Liters & was employed as Lynn’s main writer prior to Vicki Williams.  It is unknown whether The Sparks were local to New Orleans or Greenville and again, the group name is so generic it is unclear if they have other 45s.   Don’t Forget The Girl Back Home is a then topical Vietnam themed song.
