COMMENT: “It has been a great experience for me to continue to fly the flag high for my band Sweet which was one of the best bands to come out of England in the 70s, in my humble opinion.” commented founding member Steve Priest. “I have surrounded myself with amazing musicians to bring these songs alive with the recording of this album. The band has the energy and aggressiveness that we started out with, and I hope that I have helped it reach its most authentic peak as one of the songwriters and the only living original founding member of the group. I feel we have captured the nature of the beast as it were and we will continue to bring these songs to you live and in person so we can share this Sweet experience together. See you on the road!” continued Priest.
The CD will include a previously unavailable studio recording of The Beatles “I Saw Her Standing There.” “Are You Ready? Sweet Live” was recorded in 2008 in Southern California and has been featured on radio station KLOS in Los Angeles.
