5.0 out of 5 stars GLAM ROCK AT IT'S BEST 28 April 2005
Format:Audio CD
If any group epitomised the garish silliness and wild abandon of the 70's it was Sweet. with the fusion of simple catchy melodies through to the crunching fuzzy guitars which helped make arguably the definitive sound of the glam rock period. Who else would think to use fan's chanting we want Sweet on there no1 single "Teenage Rampage" This cd has it all from there no1 smash hit "Blockbuster" to "fox on the run" Also included are there classic uk single's "hell raiser" "Wig wam bam" through to "co co" and "Funny Funny" I f you only buy 1 Sweet cd this year make it this one

THERE ALL HERE ,GLAM ROCK CLASSICS FROM THE 1971 HIT FUNNY FUNNY TO THE GIVE US A WINK TRACK LIES IN YOUR EYES (1976)
20 TRACKS OBVIOUSLY COMPILED BY A NON-SWEET FAN. NEW YORK CONNECTION,REFLECTIONS AND PEPPERMINT TWIST COULD HAVE EASILY BEEN REPLACED WITH SOLID GOLD BRASS,SWEET FA AND THE LEGENDRY SOMEONE ELSE WILL BUT ITS NOT A BAD ATTEMPT.ROCK AND ROLL DISGRACE AND DONE ME WRONG ALL RIGHT REPRESENT CLASSIC B-SIDES.
FIVE NUMBER TWOS,CO-CO,HELLRAISER,BALLROOM BLITZ,FOX ON THE RUN(BEST VERSION ON THE DESOLATION BOULEVARD ALBUM)AND THE BRILLIANT TEENAGE RAMPAGE APPEAR,AS DO TWO NUMBER FOURS LITTLE WILLY AND WIG-WAM BAM AND OF COURSE THE BOYS' ONLY UK NO.1 BLOCKBUSTER.
DESCRIBED IN THE GUINESS BOOK AS "GLAM ROCK GIANTS" STEVE PREIST,ANDY SCOTT,MICK TUCKER AND BRIAN CONNELLY BROUGHT FANTASTIC ESCAPEISM TO THE EARLY AND MID-SEVENTIES.
A MUST HAVE FIRST CD FOR ANYONE CHECKING OUT 'GLAM ROCK'.

4.0 out of 5 stars F-Foxy, Fox on the Run and Hide Away 5 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Sweet represented Glam Rock at its most extreme and silly but with a lot of great music.

The main highlights are Ballroom Blitz, Wigwam Bam and the outstanding, forgotten classic Fox on the Run. Blockbuster and Little Willy are other fine songs. In truth, the whole album is a fine collection of top glam rock. Great music for driving and going to work to get you up in the morning.

While not quite as great as many other top rock bands on the 1970s it is well worth buying, for the sheer fun of it alone.

I always liked the Sweet so being able to listen to their original recordings again gave me much pleasure. They brought back some nice memories from the past.

I love this band!Even though I was very young when they were about I can still remember vividly
watching them on top of the pops. Motley Crue must have loved them to? Teenage Rampage-Fab!

5.0 out of 5 stars Remembered all the words like it was yesterday!! 16 Oct 2010
By kanda
Format:Audio CD
Bought this for my Mum, but found myself singing along to all the words. Where did those years go - how on earth do you remember songs like Wig Wam Bam from 1970's?

Great fun, thoroughly enjoyed the CD. Well worth a fiver!!
