#4M: Suzi Q
It’s a new month, and we have a new musical conductor. Alana from Ramblin with AM gets to choose our themes this month. Today’s theme is Free Choice. This means anything goes :)
You may have seen the title of this post and thought this was going to be a post about the Creedence Clearwater Revival song, Suzi Q. That thought is incorrect. Today’s post is about Suzi Quatro, her latest album and documentary.
In the 1970s, Suzi Quatro scored a string of hit singles that found greater success in Europe and Australia than in her homeland, America. She reached no. 1 in the UK and other European countries and Australia with her singles "Can the Can" (1973) and "Devil Gate Drive" (1974). Following a recurring role as bass player Leather Tuscadero on the popular American sitcom Happy Days, her duet "Stumblin' In" with Smokie's lead singer Chris Norman reached No. 4 in the US.
Quatro released her self-titled debut album in 1973. Since then, she has released fifteen studio albums, ten compilation albums, and one live album. Her other solo hits include "48 Crash", "Daytona Demon", "The Wild One", and "Your Mama Won't Like Me".
Between 1973 and 1980, Quatro was awarded six Bravo Ottos. In 2010, she was voted into the Michigan Rock and Roll Legends online Hall of Fame. Quatro has sold over 50 million albums and continues to perform live, worldwide. Her most recent studio album was released in 2019 and she also continues to present new radio programmes.
In today’s playlist, I’ve included a few songs from the latest album, some of her older hits (because… well, you know… I can’t just turn my back on music from the ‘70s) and a trailer for the documentary of her life. Suzi turned 70 on June 3 of this year.
Please enjoy this week’s playlist:
