Love the B-sides and interview on Propaganda, but I voted for Big Beat with its six bonus tracks for good measure; plenty to enjoy there.

I'm on the same boat; although I find that album too slick for my liking it has some really great b-sides.

Hard one stalling decision. Some bonus tracks were so energising examples of pop perfection, its bewildering how they missed the albums. In fact, its bewildering how some of them weren't released as A-sides. Having heard much of these bonus tracks in the (now unthinkable) years of ignorance pre-internet, but long after the 70s, I had assumed the following were hits:

Kimono My House - Barbecutie and Lost and Found

Indiscreet - Profile

Propaganda - Alabamy Right (can't now recall whether I imagined an enigmatic hit or manifesting as standout album track).

For a golden period, Sparks evidently couldn't produce anything other than dazzling records. Indicative, it now is easy to conclude, of the breathtaking brilliance to follow.
