just get her greatest hits. not as consistent as expected, but some great stuff. chinn and chapman pretty much wrote her best songs -- as opposed to sweet, who penned some great stuff on their own as well.

Quatro, you mean? I picked up Can the Can a couple weeks ago and have been loving the shit out of it. Though I may be one of those folk who'll look for one good album over a greatest hits...

(Glam suddenly became a large part of my recent diet after getting a review copy of an album by The High Strung, Moxie Bravo, that made me think "Damn, they sound like some classic glam artist... Who is that?" I haven't been able to track down the band yet, but I've listened to a lot of Sweet, Slade, Quatro and Mott and learned to like all of 'em. I can't seem to find any Gary Glitter that's not a Greatest Hits [or just R&Rpt1]).

The Gary Glitter 10" record "Glitter and Gold" has got the only six Gary Glitter songs I really feel like I need, including Rock and Roll parts 1 and 2.

Must admit I'm curious about the "Velvet Tin Mine" compilation of mid-70's glam obscurities.

Soukesian (Soukesian), Thursday, 22 June 2006 18:05 (twelve years ago) Permalink

The best overall glam-rock compilation I own, and has proven to be the PWN3r of mid 70s glam is this really cheaply done 2-CD released on Repertroire called Dynamite! - The Best Of Glam Rock. The cover is just fucking godawful. It makes worse use of rainbows than the worst K-Tel compilation from 1976, or the worst Atari 2600 cartridge. And there's a gloved hand holding a fake colored glittered paper mache stack-o-dynamite on it, using tin foil as the sparkles. Yes, we're talking almost-as-bad-as-Cleopatra levels here.

But it fucking rocks.

It's got the best Quatro, Angel, Kongos, Cozy Powell, Sweet, Heavy Metal Kids, Chris Spedding, Wizard, and Gary Glitter tracks one can hope for on a single release.

the stuff by cradle (w/suzi and her sister) is just great. and the pleasure seekers were great, too. but really, somebody better put that cradle stuff out before i figure out if there's a way to download decent audio from myspace anymore.

This stuff is great. Suzi's voice has less screech than on the big glam hits.

on a suzi kick tonight for whatever reason. i have this compilation by her -- which seems haphazardly selected -- and when i first got it i was kind of indifferent but every time i go back to it i like it more. there are really hooks galore, and i like how the music follows a '70s arc from more overtly glam stuff to disco-country inflected things like this:

(and obviously her musical evolution is as much chinn/chapman's as hers personally, but she had a flexible enough voice and all-purpose pop persona to fit whatever they were doing.)

hellzapoppa (tipsy mothra), Saturday, 2 January 2010 07:58 (nine years ago) Permalink

also to be precise, i guess that song is really more cod-reggae-country than disco-country.

hellzapoppa (tipsy mothra), Saturday, 2 January 2010 08:04 (nine years ago) Permalink

my compilation lacks this song entirely

I'd consider her for any list of my favorite artists, and I had a crush on her since Leather Tuscadero days; used to have a copy of the Rolling Stone cover she was on ("Suzi Quatro Flexes Her Leather"), on my wall. The Wild One: Classic Quatro (Razor & Tie 1996) always seemed definitive to me; assume it's out of print now. 20 songs, starting with four from the debut and ending with "Stumblin' In"/"She's In Love With You"/"Never Been In Love"/"Lipstick"/"Keep A Knockin."

George Smith says she made a really good new album a couple years ago, though I haven't heard it. He talks about it somewhere on "Rolling Past Expiry Hard Rock 2009"; I'd post a permalink but the thread's taking way too long to load.

I had no idea that Suzi Quatro was Sherilyn Fenn's aunt

Elvis Telecom, Thursday, 7 January 2010 21:06 (nine years ago) Permalink

Back to the Drive -- with the title cut written especially for the record by Mike Chapman. Which was nice considering the history. Good album, produced by Sweet's old guitar player. If you like Suzi's old stuff on Rak -- and the best of it was posted as video clips in an old Bimble thread, you don't need it. But if you really still like Suzi, you sort of do because it was a consistently good LP made to show everyone she could still conjure up the youth glam.

All the old glam pounding beats, Elvis imitation and barroom rockabilly and piano are in it.

Like Slade, pretty much ignored in the US even though she made good records well into the Seventies.
"If you Knew Suzie," "Rock Hard," etc...

Buy the latest copy of Ugly Things, big article on the Pleasure Seekers, interview with Patti Quatro. http://www.ugly-things.com/

fun, too, eh? Sorry, my earlier post now sounds kind of like an order than a would-be helpful suggestion! I just picked up the latest UT issue a few days ago, pouring through the Norton Records stories as well.

Aw man gotta get that Cradle stuff. Been jamming the first Quatro solo LP a lot lately. Also the Pleasure Seekers 7" on Norton.

Don't know any of her music (I remember her from Happy Days), but someone posted this on Facebook today--it's her birthday--and I don't think I've ever seen anything like the way the keyboard player and drummer leave their stations to...dance.

ahahaha, it's great when the drummer does it, like he saw the keyboardist, thought about it for a while and said "fuck it, what am i still doing here?"

Never my favorite Suzi single but it's got a good chug to it. "48 Crash" and "Can the Can" all the way.

Doctor Casino, Monday, 4 June 2012 03:59 (six years ago) Permalink

this was her best single imho

I've loved "Can The Can" for so many years, and had NO FECKIN' CLUE what 99% of the words were until I just now looked them up: (online lyrics sites often have an error or three, but these look to be pretty much correct? I think?)

Well you call your mamma tiger
And we all know you are lying
And your boyfriend's name is eagle
And he lives up in the sky (high high)
Watch out the tiger don't go claw the eagle's eye
But let the eagle take the tiger by surprise
Scratch out her eyes
So make a stand for your man, honey
Try to can the can
Put your man in the can, honey
Get him while you can
Can the can
Can the can
If you can
Well can the can
Well your sister's got the feline touch, she touches up your mind
And your eagle lover likes his little bit of evil loving all the time
Don't let the cat get into the eagle's nest at night
Because the eagle could say "yes" without a fight
Scratch out her eyes

yeah i should pull that out! got a lot of spins when i first picked it up, years and years ago. good meat-n-potatoes stuff with a glam-stomp sheen. i love how the back cover hypes the professional songwriters, something you'd think would have gone out with the monkees and certainly wouldn't be the pitch of these beer-guzzling, muttonchops-and-leather rockers. besides the singles, "shine my machine," "official suburban superman" and "glycerine queen" are standouts. i remember my roomate thinking the latter was "Mystery In Queens" - they're on the case! the beatles cover is kinda lame IIRC.

cd reissue has all the singles/b-sides of this albums campaign, so, its even more insanely good.

this is so much more fun than i ever expected.
