Ben Edmonds perfectly explains the error of this disrespect in his liner notes to Shout! Factory's wonderful Action: The Sweet Anthology, but even he dismisses the group's earliest bubblegum singles, and their inclusion is a big reason why Action stands apart from all previous Sweet compilations
Sweet have always been one of my guilty pleasure bands. There was just something about them that always struck a chord with me. I have quite a few of their albums on vinyl, but had nothing besides the "Live At The Marquee" album on CD (which only contained two original members). On the anthology the first half of disc one focuses on the band's early bubble gum rock recordings that were mainly the product of outside songwriters Chinn and Chapman. A great example is the band's last major hit "Love Is Like Oxygen" in which the longer album version is included here with it's extended instrumental middle section. The band's later material is a bit more hit and miss, but songs like "California Nights" and "Big Apple Waltz" are good ones from the latter period.
