So I went and got myself this. Suzie Qautro may not break any invention or emotional impact records, but I don't climb apple trees looking for toothpaste, either.
She is smart, has a great backing band, and quite a tasteful alto singing style. This is just good old 1970s middle of the road rock and roll--the type we took for granted in those days. Now that rock is digtized and homoginized, we realize how good this music sounds.
Play it next to Areatha or any female heavywieght vocalist, or, say, some Johnny Winter or Alman Brothers, and it just works wonders.
Oh yeah, in case you wondered, 98.6 and feeling great. -
For 'If You Knew Suzi', her fourth album, she underwent an almost complete image make-over from leather-clad hard rocker to vulnerable country pop balladeer. It is an "almost" makeover because she still has a stab at a few rock tracks, though they are mostly on the pedestrian side.
The first single and biggest hit, `If You Can't Give Me Love', is slick, accomplished and catchy. Along with the opener, `Don't Change My Luck', and `The Race is On', they account for the by now ubiquitous Mike Chapman/ Nicky Chinn compositions (and the singles). They also account for producer, Mike Chapman's approach to the sound, which works well for the new softer approach, but mostly sees attempts to rock hard wind up as flat and unconvincing.
Quatro and husband, Len Tuckey, are once again limited to too few compositions, even though they include two of the best songs in the set (the socially conscious, 'Suicide' and tender 'Wiser than You'). Like 'Quatro' and `Aggro Phobia' before it, there are again too many covers.
This is certainly not essential, but it contains a few first rate songs worth owning.
The following year, on 1979's `Suzi & Other 4 Letter Words', Quatro's foray away from hard rock continued in a brasher, more energetic follow-up to the softer, image-changing 1978 album. It also boasts a far more eclectic track list. Quatro tries everything from hard rock and country to 50s-styled pop and some rather classy disco overtones - with varying levels of success. While its production and strengths are greater, its weaknesses are not dissimilar to the previous album.
Chapman's production is fine, as always, capturing an excellent thumping drum sound throughout, effecting background vocals and some atmospheric keyboards (though an over-reliance on piano dangerously risks making the whole exercise sound hokey). There are only three tracks that qualify as rock.
Highlights are Quatro/Tuckey's rocker, 'Mind Demons' and the dirgy, dancy 'Space Cadets', as well as the Jack Lee penned (Blondie's 'Hanging on the Telephone) 'You Are My Lover'. The absence of covers in truly refreshing, as is the heavy presence of Quatro's own writing. Nevertheless, it is hard to shake the fact that this woman should be rocking and that `Four Letter Words' is still well below her best.
BGO have done a great job with the cover, also their remastering is top quality as Suzi's first four albums where remastered by this company back in 2000.
Its good to see that Stumblin In, the second track is on the If you knew Suzi part of the cd, as this was not on the original issue of the Lp way back in 78 when released down under.
Its also great to see Suzi and other four letter words remastered as well. This is a Suzi's favorite. Some great personal lovely tracks like Starlight lady, You are my lover, which is my personal favorite and the hit single She's in love with you.
Now all we need is Suzi Quatro's Rock Hard album, So BGO one more left to remaster.... Suzi owns the rights to that Album.
Both of these albums are a contempary music fans delight and a Suzi Quatro fan must have it now cd, mainly because they are strong in their written content and strong in musical taste.
What else would you expect from the Queen of Rock!!!
Suzi would come back a year later and release "Suzi..And Other Four Letter Words", this album starts out with the balls to the wall early 60's type rocker "I've Never Been In Love", #41 Dave Neal's drumming gives us the earth shaken "Mind Demons", "She's In Love With You", #41, one of my all-time favorites from Suzi, should of been a top 20 hit for sure, remember hearing this a ton in the summer of '79, Suz's bass and Bill Hurd's keyboards keep this track going. The Quatro -Tuckey tune "Hollywood", is a great mid-tempo track, good story song, with some good rolling keys by Bill Hurd, watch out for the F-word warning at the end of the song. The title track has that 50's sound, Suzi could do these numbers with no sweat. The new wave feel of "Mama's Boy", a bother classic in my opinion, a Quatro CLASSIC! "Starlight Lady", one of those 50's mid-tempo ballads, very atmospheric. "You Are My Lover", her only cover on the album was written by Jack Lee (The Nerves) 1970's LA power-pop band, a song that sounded like Debbie Harry, but Suzi does a great job on this, very upbeat power-pop. "Space Cadets", has a very New wave tone also, with some Gary Numan type feels. And the album closes with "Love Hurts", not the Everly Brothers classic, this one has a great Dave Neal drum roll, very good 70's popper. Suzi would really give me her pride and joy (for me anyways), in 1980's "Rock Hard".
