New Oldies - No Friend Of Mine by The Sparkles


  1. Excelent write-up for this 45. I've been playing 'No Friend Of Mine' since discovering the song in the mid 80s and I'll NEVER tire of it.

  2. Incredible tune! What stands out for me are the really fat drum and guitar tones. A bit reminiscent of Paul Revere and the Raiders but they approached this kind of heaviness only occasionally.I agree it should have been a hit.Possibly a little too hard-hitting for the times.

  3. Hi, I was wondering, since you featured this record, if it would be possible to also feature the b-side titled "First Forget".

    It's a slow ballad, so I've heard. I've never actually heard the entire song. If you can upload it also, that would be cool.

  4. Nice Blog. A lot of these online guitar classes will have an introductory lesson that's free of charge.
