Format: Audio CD
Sweet were a great band. Very influential, very underated at thetime of their success. They recorded some excellent singles, andsome absolutely first rate albums.THIS AIN`T ONE OF THEM!This has NOTHING to do with Sweet! It is a very dodgy collectionof demos, which some idiot has decided to make sound like liverecordings. The audience is just faded in and out at will. (I`ve got a mixer and I`m gonna use it!) Total rubbish.Save your money and buy one of the proper albums; Sweet Fanny Adams, Desolation Boulevard, Give Us A Wink, Off The Record, Level Headed, Cut Above The Rest, Identity Crisis, Waters Edge.If it`s the hits you are after get "Sweet Originals", a greatdouble CD package.This is garbage and the label should be sued for making a FIRSTRATE BAND sound like S**T!

I have to disagree with Derek's review. Having said that, I do agree with the fake "live" comments.
However, I assume the previous reviewer prefers the Chinn/Chapman era, where they produced most of their pop music hits. Don't get me wrong these were all great songs (remember them well back in the good old seventies).
But this compilation shows The Sweet in more of a hard rock groove, probably where they felt most comfortable, if truth was known.
Andy Scott was an underrated guitarist, who could produce a rock riff as good as the leading lights of that era.
Evident on tracks like "Hard Times" and "Windy City", where the riffs are rocking, combined with some great solos.
The latter is very reminiscent of Deep Purple's My Women From Tokyo. It's really good stuff - check it out!.
The other stand out tracks are Solid Gold Brass, 4th Of July, Breakdown, Action, Midnight To Daylight and Need A Lot Of Lovin'.
The production on a couple of tracks is a little ropey, but overall this is a worthy release, especially if you like a bit of seventies rock and especially, when you can buy it for just over a quid. Bargain!!
