THE SWEET - "FUNNY HOW SWEET CO-CO CAN BE" 1971

THE SWEET


"FUNNY HOW SWEET CO-CO CAN BE"

1971



CO-CO - Cool, quirky Pop, with Caribbean and Latin infuences, really unusual start for a Glam Rock group's album.  Catchy No.2 hit in the UK.
 

CHOP CHOP - A little Funk, a little Progressive Rock with some very eerie, shadowed vocals by Brian Connolly.  The band were not scared of experimentation and this was certianly one that worked.  

REFLECTIONS - A cover of The Supremes' 1967 hit.  Brave move from a new Rock band on their debut album, covering a Motown track.  A nice version and Brian's voice seems to suit the style.

HONEYUCKLE LOVE - Pure 70s guitar driven Glam Rock akin to the sounds Marc Bolan was also making with T-Rex.   

SANTA MONICA SUNSHINE - Another change in style for this debut set, proving the band were not going to be pigeonholed into just a Glam Rock band.  This is Country twanged Blues.

DAYDREAM - This is another cover of the classic by Lovin' Spoonful released in 1966.  Great popular Folk Rock song that everybody remembers when they hear it. A great cover version too.

FUNNY FUNNY - 60s Beat Pop meets early 70s Classic Rock, one of my favourites and the first hit in the UK charts for the band. 
 
 
TOM TOM TURNAROUND - Very unusual Acoustic Folk track, took me a few listens to really appreciate this one.

JEANIE - A kind of hillbilly Country Rock track, one of my favourites, great chorus and quirky backing. 

SUNNY SLEEPS LATE - Almost dark Progressive Rock track, again takes a few listens to get this in your head, its a little bit experiental and off key music confuses you at first.

SPOTLIGHT - Guitar led Classic Rock track, great riffs, great vocals, absolutely top tune! Amazed this wasn't released as a single.

DONE ME WRONG ALRIGHT - Awesome Classic Rock track, one of the best by The Sweet.  It can match all the Rock bands of the early 70s such as Black Sabbath and the like.
