Radar –Sweet Baby Sweet


Radar –Sweet Baby Sweet/ Midnight Fire –EMI 5C 006-25506 (1976 NL)

Sweet Baby Sweet is an astute choice for a title on this female fronted late Dutch Glam corker as it...well ...recalls a female fronted Sweet track! It features great vocals over an exuberant performance all perfectly rendered by its powerfully compacted production. The B side Midnight Fire is really good as well, drawing parallels with The Shocking Blue, it also rocks along in fine fashion. Sweet Baby Sweet was the first out of three singles released by Radar; the others being One Way Ticket and Don’t Ever Go Away (all on EMI)

This is a solid track. It's funny how I sometimes pass over glamish singles if they were released during or after 1976. I guess the snob in me says the ramones came out in 76 and everything else should have been over from there on out. Who cares, this single is on my want list.

Same here...Most of my favourite Glam singles came out in 73/74, 76 was year O , but it was more a case that disco/funk/flacid AOR were really "happening" then....

This one's brilliant. (Not terribly original, but that was never really the point of glam.) The stomp-quotient puts Slade to shame.
