Product description

Product Description

In 1978, during one of his many visits to the US, Stiff founder Dave Robinson met producer/writer Liam Sternberg who introduced him to the thriving alternative music scene in Akron Ohio. Stiff consequently released an Akron compilation (featuring a scratch 'n' sniff sleeve - with the smell of tyres, naturally) featuring left-field acts such as The Waitresses, Jane Aire, The Bizarros. The album also featured 16 year-old R&B belter Rachel who impressed Robinson enough to sign her to a long term deal.

Sweet was put in the studio with Sternberg and gaggle of session men and Stiff stalwarts, including members of Graham Parker's Rumour. The result was `Fool Around' a pumping album of good-time country/R&B/new wave - listen to the singing and eat your heart out Joss Stone! Sweet joined the `Be Stiff' package tour along with Wreckless Eric, Jona Lewie, Lene Lovich and Mickey Jupp. This line-up traveled the length and breadth of the UK by train before embarking on an extensive European and US tour.

Sweet released one further album for Stiff, `Protect The Innocent', before signing to CBS in the US. She retired from the music scene in the mid-80s and now works as a senior executive for Warner Television.
