Album Description:

GIVE US A WINK is an album released in March 1976 by the British rock band Sweet. Building on the momentum caused from the runaway success of DESOLATION BOULEVARD, Sweet forged ahead and shoved GIVE US A WINK out to satisfy their growing legions of rabid fans. It was their first album to be fully written and produced by the band themselves without the aid of Nicky Chinn & Mike Chapman. Consequently it completed the move to the hard rock style that had always been the trademark of the self-penned single B-sides backing the more pop oriented singles written by Chinn and Chapman ever since their breakthrough in 1971. GIVE US A WINK reached #3 in Sweden, #9 in Germany and made it into the Top 20 in Norway, Canada and Australia. In the U.S. it reached #27 but it didn''t chart at all on Sweet''s home territory, the U.K.

GIVE US A WINK contains two singles, "Action" and "The Lies in Your Eyes" that were recorded and released prior to the album itself. "Action" reached the Top 10 in 1975 in numerous European countries and Canada but stalled at #15 and the U.K. and #20 in the U.S. Though "The Lies in Your Eyes" reached only #35 in the U.K., it was very popular in other parts of Europe as well as Australia. A third single, "4th of July" was released in Australia only but failed to chart.

The original LP was released with a die-cut cover that caused the eye to wink as the sleeve was removed and placed back into the cover.

Sweet: Andy Scott (vocals, guitar, synthesizer); Steve Priest (vocals, bass guitar); Mick Tucker (vocals, percussion); Brian Connolly (vocals).
