The Sweet - Sweet Fanny Adams (1999) Retail CD
Although there is not one hit single featured on this album I recommend it as the best thing Sweet ever recorded.Out to prove themselves as more than a "singles band" they surpassed themselves both with songs and overall production which was handled by Phil Wainman.The album opens with the swirling, metallic "Set Me Free" written by guitarist Andy Scott (covered in the 80`s by Saxon on "Crusader") and I remember as a thirteen year old climbing the walls with excitement. Hellraiser and Ballroom Blitz only hinted that the band were capable of these sounds."Heartbreak Today", the second track hasmore… a Zeppelinisque riff and Connolly`s vocals have real depth and feeling. Once again the production makes your hi-fi sound ten times better than it probably really is.Next track "No You Don`t" was sung by Steve Priest, bassist and was covered later by Pat Benatar on her first album. Very angry, aggresive song complete with cellos reminiscent of the Rolling Stones on "19th Nervous Breakdown"."Rebel Rouser" and "Peppermint Twist" are probably the poppiest tracks the album has to offer. One of them was a big hit for the band in Australia (can`t remember which however!)"Sweet F.A." is the epic of the album at over 6 minutes long. It ROCKS! Heavier than any of the supposedly heavy bands of the time! Scary for little Mary I`d say!"Restless", again sung by Steve - a great stage favourite - a bitlike Free`s "Alright Now"."Into The Night", the next track was written and sung by Andy Scott and is reminiscent of something from Deep Purple`s "In Rock" album.The album offficially closes with "AC/DC" (rumoured to be where a certain Australian band took their name.) A song about bi-sexuality!!! This CD version of the album has some bonus track which were initially hard to get hold of B sides that indicated this monster of an album might be in the hearts of this greatly underrated band.If you love Seventies rock music, if you love great playing, if you love a well produced album, if you ever wondered what Sweet were really all about - THIS IS THE ALBUM!
