Sweet at their best,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sweet Fanny Adams (Audio CD)
Sweet F.A in my opinion is the best LP these guys made,I bought this record when it first came out in 1973 and up until a couple of years ago when my record deck packed in I was still playing it,,,all be it with a load of scratchs on!!!!
All the songs have stood the test of time,, the opening track Set Me Free is a cracker and sets the very high standard for the rest of the cd.Heartbreak Today is my favourte,great sounding guitar,No You Don't is written by Chinn/Chapman but is nothing like the hits they wrote for Sweet,Mud and Suzie Quatro to name a few,this song has a real edge to it,Rebal Rouser is a kind of Hellraiser type tune,Peppermint Twist is Sweet having a bit of fun with an old classic,the title track is just over six minutes of pure rock with a blinding guitar solo at the end,Restless nice sounding chores,In To The Night is a darker interesting song and AC-DC is an all out get up and dance track which closes the original LP.
The bonus tracks include 3 B sides which again show that Sweet could not just turn out so called bubble gum records made just for the charts and a few weeks on top of the pops.
All in all I would totaly recommend this cd for not just Sweet fans but for people who like easy to listen to music with a bit of edge in places.
