Formed in London in 1968, The Sweet were among Britain’s earliest glam metal stars, scoring thirteen top 20 hits throughout the seventies, including the number one smash ‘Blockbuster’ in 1973.

The band also enjoyed success across the pond, hitting the top ten with ‘Little Willy’ (frequently used in the hit TV show ‘Life On Mars’) ‘Ballroom Blitz’ (memorably covered by Tia Carrerre in’ Wayne’s World’) and ‘Fox On The Run’ (which, of course, soundtracked the trailer for Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2’).

Spread across nine discs and featuring over 140 tracks, ‘The Sensational Sweet (Chapter One: The Wild Bunch)’ includes the band’s first six studio albums (plus extra tracks), two discs of live tracks and rarities, and the previously unreleased ‘The Sweet At The BEEB’

There’s also a 52 page, full colour booklet with new liner notes from renowned UK music journalist Dave Ling.
