Suzi Quatro is Suzi Quatro's 1974 debut album. Depending on where you live and the country of release also decides which tracks may be on the album or what the title may be. For example the title of the album in Australia is "Can the Can". The first pressing in the UK omitted the song"Can the Can" and was replaced by "Rockin Moonbeam" instead. Whereas the American release has a different track listing than my Canadian vinyl pressing. As glam rock debut albums go, you'll have to search a long way to find one that outclasses Suzi Quatro's opening shot. Suzi had two top ten singles from this album in the UK and throughout the early seventies she was huge most everywhere except in her native North America. I say that because before she had recorded this album, back in 1971 I think, she had moved from Detroit to the United Kingdom, where she still lives today. Even opening for such acts as Alice Cooper didn't help her gain any success in the US. Which really sucked because Suzi Quatro remains one of the most nakedly sexual albums of the entire glam rock era — and certainly has to be ranked as one of the hottest debuts of the decade. I really don't think the American market really "got" the glam rock concept because another top notch glam outfit from the seventies, Slade, couldn't buy a hit in the US either.

My only goal is to share my love/hate relationship with music and to expose people to music they may be unfamiliar with. If you are the creator or copyright owner of a song or anything else that might be posted here, please CONTACT ME by sending an e-mail to homercat at shaw dot ca if you wish to have it removed. I don't know why someone would want me to quit promoting their music for free and therefore putting money in their pockets by getting people to buy their stuff, but I will quit if you e mail me.
Most importantly, if you like an artist you hear here , you should definitely do your best to take the knowledge you gain here and go out and BUY THEIR ALBUMS to help support the artist.
