Sweet: Brian Connolly (vocals); Andy Scott (guitar); Steve Priest (bass guitar); Mick Tucker (drums, background vocals).
The Best of Sweet on Collectables contains the group's two biggest hits, "Ballroom Blitz" and "Fox On the Run," as well as some of their classic '70s glitter sleaze cuts like "Teenage Rampage," "Love Is Like Oxygen," "Action," and "The 6-Teens." Unfortunately, it omits any of the band's early bubblegum classics and in general is too brief to be of much use to anyone who wants to get a real feel for what the band was all about. You may end up spending a bit more money, but it will be worth it to get a more comprehensive collection of the Sweet's underrated catalog. [The issue on Collectables is a straight reissue of 1998's The Best of Sweet on CEMA.] ~ Tim Sendra
