Sweet: Give Us A Wink (RCA) ***

Barbara Charone, Sounds, 28 February 1976

THE SWEET have changed. That's what everyone kept telling me. No longer the offensive pop group they once were, Sweet now rock'n'roll. So it was with a genuine desire to boogie, that I eagerly placed Give Us A Wink atop my turntable, half expecting to gyrate across the living room floor to a seventies equivalent of 'Brown Sugar'.
