Suzi Quatro had several musical incarnations during the 1970s, from learther-clad proto-punk to more mature pop chanteuse. Her early hits were aggressive three-chord ditties like Can The can, 48 Crash, Daytona Demon and Devil Gate Drive, all done in her shouting vocal style. Later she actually started singing and hat hits with beautiful ballads like If You Can't Give Me love and She's In Love With You. Her duet with Chris Norman of Smokie, Stumblin' In, is included here, as are interesting covers of classics such as Fever, All Shook Up and Steve Harley's Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me). In retrospect, Quattro was quite oroginal for her time and vvery successfully mined a pop-rock vein. Her contribution to the UK music scene in the 1970s was considereable and this album reveals her as a sensitive interpreter of intelligent compositions, in addition to the disposable pop.

I hadn't thought about her or listened to Suzi for nigh on 30 years, until this popped up on my "more items to consider" on Amazon. I had forgotten just how good a singer she is on the ballads and slower numbers and how well she "rocks" on the better known numbers like Devil, Can the Can and 48 crash. I particularly like the track Stumblin' In which has a country feel to it. Her voice has a pure clear sound to it and she reminds me of Eva Cassidy. This set really does not have a bad track on it and it is a terrific introduction to her recorded work. I will certainly now be getting all of her stuff. For me she was a forerunner and almost role model for rockers who followed like Heart, Pat Benatar and Joan Jett. Someone will tell me I am talking "b-------" I suppose, but just listen to this with the volume up very loud and treat the neighbours. Enjoy!!!

Suzie Quatro' rode alongside the 'Glam-era' with some style between 1973-1980.
Must admit I did collect her music back then, she was perhaps the Queen of 'Glam
-Rock'at the time, achieving five top-ten entries two of which topped the chart the
two being 'Can the Can'(Chart '1' 1973) and 'Devil Gate Drive'(Chart '1' 1974) along
with five further top ten hits, she did have a further six top thirty entries as well
as a few lower order hits.
Other than the two number '1's some of my other favourites included....''48 Crash'
(Chart '3' 1973)'If You Can't Give Me Love'(Chart '4' 1978) ....'She's in love with You'
(Chart '11' 1979) ....'Daytona Demon'(Chart '14' 1973)....'The Wild One'(Chart '7' 1974)
..'Tear me Apart'(Chart '27' 1977) ...and....'You're Mama Won't Like Me'(Chart '31' 1975)
these among the favourites from this 70's artist.
'Suzi' was a significant part of the 70's scene, we'd have been poorer without her contribution,
which certainly helped to put the fun into the music of the day.
Most of her material was written by 'Mike Chapman' and 'Nicky Chinn' who also wrote numbers for
the likes of 'Mud' 'Sweet' and 'Racey' 'Chinn and Chapman' were one of the 70's great successes
in song-writing terms.
'Suzi Quatro' was indeed one of the 70's Greats. (essential album for collector's of 70's music)

Bought this for my husband as a joke present but it's actually better than expected - so maybe the joke was on me :)

Bought this for my husband as he liked Suzi when he was young. Brought back lots of happy memories. He loves it.

This is one of the better compliations that EMI have released from Suzi Quatro's material, it has a eye catching cover and a few different tracks that she has done over the years, although its not remastered it is a very clear sounding compliation, a defenate must have for rock n roll music lovers everywhere

Although her voice sounds similar to Smokie, Rod Stewart,Kim Carnes,she is capable of showing others how rock music could be performed beautifully.The album is worth the collection if you enjoy the style of her songs.

Suzi the leather-clad temptess could rock with the boys and later on sang like an angelic girl.
She may not have been as musically gifted as that other US female import Chrissie Hynde, but for a couple of years she was ace in a leather package.
