Synopsis

Album Description
For many years, Sweet has been the band of choice for anthem-oriented rock songs. With albums like Desolation Boulevard, Give Us A Wink, and last years Sweetlife (Friday Music 1033), the band truly reigns as one of the leading founders of the glam-rock/ metal-rock revolution. Andy Scott and the crew have gone into the studios and put together a fantastic project called Chronology. With over an hour of their best known classics re-visited, hard -to- find mixes, overseas only released tracks & mega-medleys, this latest anthology really captivates the old and new converts alike. New hard rocking versions of " Fox On The Run" " Ballroom Blitz" and " Love Is Like Oxygen" are all here for the taking. Rare medleys (overseas new recordings) of "Coco/Funny/Poppa Joe" and their latest international hit " Do It All Over Again" are included in the jam packed package. This album will sit proudly with any of your other classic Sweet records. Andy Scott is joined by fellow Sweet members Steve Grant, Jeff Brown and Bruce Bisland, plus special guest the late Mick Tucker on Drums. Chronology by Sweet.....music for the hard-rocker in all of us!
 

CD Reviews

Steer Clear of This One

"I've been familiar with Sweet since Little Willy became a hit in the early 70s. They have numerous compilation CDs, but this one consists of totally reworked versions of the songs. I listened to the samples of several and I didn't much like them, even though I usually appreciate extended and/or slightly different interpretations of songs.

The sample available for Love Is Like Oxygen does not cover the instrumental part at all, but what was covered sounded different but worth a listen to the whole song. Since this song is one of my favorites, and I found a download elsewhere for 77 cents I gave it a try. The vocal parts of the songs are somewhat different as the sample preview indicated, and perhaps an interesting new spin on things. The instrumental part is COMPLETELY different. It sucks! Even though it was only 77 cents I feel like I should get a refund. I don't know what they were thinking with this one."
