Big Beat is the sixth album by American rock band Sparks, released in 1976. Big Beat was recorded at Mediasound Studios, New York City in August 1976. The album was the group's first album after breaking away from their English backing band. Instead, the Mael Brothers used session musicians and hired former Milk 'N' Cookies bassist, and Roxy Music contributor Viva, Sal Maida on bass, Tuff Darts guitarist Jeffrey Salen and Hilly Boy Michaels on drums. The release was their first for Columbia Records. Big Boy. Past Tense: The Best of Sparks. Ron Mael. Big Beat. Sparks - Big Beat 1976. To favorites 5 Download album. Listen album.

Most of this album finds Sparks doing what they do best: spewing out clever, mile-a-minute lyrics over solid-rocking accompaniment this time, provided by a superior group of studio musicians. Drummer Hilly Michaels and guitarist Jeffrey Salen lend the Mael brothers' songs considerable rock & roll authority. Standouts include the opening blast, Big Boy which was featured in the film Rollercoaster, the propulsive Fill-Er-Up, and the falsetto-delivered proclamation I Like Girls, apparently a leftover from their previous album, Indiscreet.
