Sweet Sensation was an eight piece British soul group who had some success in the mid 1970s. They are best known for their 1974 No. 1 UK hit, "Sad Sweet Dreamer".

Formed in Manchester in 1971, the band came to prominence after appearing on the ITV talent show New Faces. Under the guidance of panellist Tony Hatch the band signed to Pye Records. The debut single "Snowfire" failed to reach the charts, but the follow-up "Sad Sweet Dreamer" was a UK number one single in October 1974 [3] that reached No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 the following spring. The follow-up "Purely by Coincidence" reached No. 11 in the UK in January 1975. Both songs were written by David Parton.
