Sweet guitarist/voclaist, Andy Scott is about to release a brand
new album comprised of various covers by everyone from the
Yardbirds to the Black Keys, however, in a rather unique twist,
each track will be mixed with elements of classic Sweet numbers,
For example, the new version of the Ramones 'Blitzkrieg Bop' has
been mixed with samples from Sweet's 'Ballroom Blitz,' and a take
on Hello's 'Back In The New York Groove' (made famous by Ace
Frehely) features samples from Jay-Z's 'Empire State Of Mind' along
with a number of other Sweet references.
"When people hear that one in particular, often they have a
solitary word: 'Wow!'" says Scott proudly.
The album, 'New York Connection', takes its name after a Sweet
track recorded in 1971 and will be available from April
