Action: The Sweet Anthology
Action: The Sweet Anthology is the first definitive Sweet 2-CD set and contains a whopping 32 tracks, including songs never before available on CD. The collection boasts every U.S. and U.K. charting hit from the 1970s, including "Ballroom Blitz" (#5), "Fox On The Run" (#5), "Little Willy" (#3) and "Love Is Like Oxygen" (#8).
Sweet combined '70s glam style with guitar-driven tunes that were at the same time irresistibly catchy. They came to prominence with their smash hit "Little Willy" in 1973, and continued to release chart-toppers, properly representing the emerging British glam scene on this side of the pond. They did, however, successfully transition into an album-rock band with the release of Give Us A Wink, which produced the single-and this collection's title track-"Action." They ultimately returned to the Top 40 with "Fox On The Run" and "Love Is Like Oxygen."
