Suzi Quatro To Release New Remastering Of Hits With The Best Of Suzi Quatro: Legend

Suzi Quatro is a kind of interesting success story. Being unable to find a success in the US, she went in search of it within the birders of the UK. It was there where she found the elusive goal. Her professional ‘discovery’ was with Mickie Most, whose work with The Animals and Herman’s Hermits produced excellent results. From there, it was a short but wild ride for the singer. Her single with Chris Norman (Smokie), “Stumblin’ In” gave her her widest hit. Of course, Suzi was full of great pop/rock tunes since her first UK hit, “Can The Can”.

Over time, Suzi released over ten studio efforts. Of those, seven were in her glory years of fame. Afterwards, Suzi went into an envied legacy where she exists today. Music fans from back then still like what she created and played. It’s why she features in over fifteen compilation sets. If you’re a Quatro fan, then it’s no doubt you that you own at least one of them.

On September 22, Suzi Quatro, in conjunction with Chrysalis Records, and PledgeMusic, will release a 20-track compilation selected by Suzi Quatro herself. In addition to the personalized choices of the set, the music will be newly remastered. The remastering is done from the original 1/4″ stereo tapes. The extensive ‘best of’ will be called The Best Of Suzi Quatro: Legend.

The offerings include CD in a six-panel digipak, both MP3 and WAV DD availability, a signed 2LP vinyl set with DD rights, and (unsigned) 2LP vinyl set with Digital Download rights. The vinyl LPs will be pressed on Gold-colored vinyl.

If you choose to order directly from the PledgeMusic site, here’s the access link. There are still 70 days before the project closes.

UK Readies 4CD Suzi Quatro Retrospective Box In October

Suzi Quatro Girl From Detroit City CD BoxSuzi Quatro, although born in the US, earned her Rock and Roll stripes in the UK. With a string of hits, songs that many of us here in the States only heard about, she soon became a star in her own right. From the early 1970s, Suzi Quatro released her first album, the self-titled debut with a great cover. That album contained her big hit, “Can the Can”, which eventually trickled over to the States on hip FM stations.

But it wasn’t until her high profile introduction on Happy Days as Leather Tuscadero that her States-side success became cemented. In 1978, she recorded a duet with Chris Norman of Smokie. the song, “Stumblin’ In” got her the recognition that she had wanted, creating a wider audience for her band.

On October 27, 7Ts Records from the UK will issue a 4CD retrospective box called The Girl From Detroit City. The Box will anthologize her career with more than 80 tracks, including some demos and alternate versions.  The box will feature a 54-page booklet with lots of memorabilia, photos, and an extensive track-by-track note by Suzi Quatro. there is also a huge essay on her career included within the pages.
