The Return Of Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night 109

I've posted this song before but it bears repeating- Sparkle Moore (born Barbara Morgan) was a pioneer of 50s rockabilly. She toured with Gene Vincent and dressed in men's leathers. Caused quite a stir I imagine. Sparkle only recorded seven songs, four released across a pair of 7" singles (in 1956 and '57) and three left unreleased. In 1957 she retired from the music industry to raise a family. And that's it. But what a tune.

'You should be labelled with a skull and cross bones
You're a jinx on my soul'

Skull And Cross Bones
