In the early 1970's, under the wings of hit makers Mike Chapman and Nicky Chinn (Smokie / MUD / Racey / Suzi Quatro a.o.), Sweet, with Brian Connolly, Mick Tucker, Steve Priest and Andy Scott rose to global fame with an almost never ending line of hits – eight of which became number ones.

Songs like "The Ballroom Blitz," "Teenage Rampage," "Wig Wam Bam," and "Hell Raiser," to name just a few, made Sweet to enduring cult stars of the rock scene. Not just because of the glam and glitter boom of the time, which the band dominated like no others, but also because of their musical quality, excellent album productions and especially their thrilling live shows.

"Without The Sweet there would not have been a Kiss" (Gene Simmons)

"Mötley Crüe always wanted to be Sweet" (Nikki Sixx)

"This is the band I wish I had been in" (Joe Elliot, Def Leppard)

To this day the Sweet theme "Satisfaction Guaranteed" is true to each one of the sell-out Sweet concerts which are virtually celebrated by mastermind Andy Scott. Now Sweet are celebrating their 40th anniversary of one of their greatest ever hits "Action" and released a new best of that, at last, tells the ultimate Sweet story from the very beginning to today, also under the same motto: 'Action! The Ultimate Story.'

Including their number one hits, and all the famous classics like "Fox On The Run," "Blockbuster!" or "The Six Teens," together with the highlights from the years after the tragic death of Brian Connolly up to the current line-up led by Andy Scott.

And even after 40 years, 'Action!' is by no means the end of the line, as can be heard on the brand new song "Defender" that celebrates its premiere exclusively on this album. A perfect rock tune with a phenomenal chorus in the classic harmony style of Sweet, just made to be a radio favourite that will stick to you all day long.

This Deluxe CD Edition  not only features a comprehensive booklet and several bonus tracks, but also yet another brand new Sweet hit "Still Got The Rock."
