  SUZI QUATRO TO RELEASE 'THE GIRL FROM DETROIT CITY' - A CAREER SPANNING 4 CD BOX SET
25 August 2014





'The Girl From Detroit City' is a beautifully presented 4-CD boxed set, celebrating an amazing 50 years in the music business for rock 'n' roll queen, Suzi Quatro and will be released on 20 October.

The 82 tracks on offer here span the whole of Suzi's career, including three songs by the Pleasure Seekers, the all-girl rock band, which Suzi formed along with her sister Patti, and which signed to Mercury Records in 1968.

Her massive chart hits from the 1970s also feature, including the 'Chinnichap' numbers, 'Can the Can', '48 Crash' and 'Devil Gate Drive' and a whole wealth of material from the 1970s onwards, through to tracks from her critically-acclaimed 2011 album, 'In The Spotlight,' which witnessed her reunion with producer, Mike Chapman.

'The Girl From Detroit City' comes complete with fascinating up-to-date liner notes, tracking Suzi's career from the outset to the present day, and it presents a wealth of album & poster artwork and photographs, including a shot of Suzi's incredible vintage Ray-Ban collection.

Suzi Quatro was the most successful female artist of the entire Glam Rock period - Suzi's style and music were not truly 'Glam' but this was the era, which saw her shoot to stardom- and her influence on subsequent generations of female rock musicians is widely acknowledged.

It's been well-documented that Chrissie Hynde and Joan Jett both drew inspiration from Suzi but so have many others, including Talking Heads' Tina Weymouth, who was encouraged to learn to play bass by listening to Quatro albums and, more recently, KT Tunstall revealed that the cover photo of her 2007 album 'Drastic Fantasti'c was based on Suzi's image.

In celebration of Suzi's 50th year in the music business, the BBC will be hosting a special performance of her one-woman show, "Unzipped", in London on Friday 26th September. It will be recorded for broadcast on BBC Radio 2 on Thursday 2nd October.

On 29th September Cherry Red will also release the single 'The Girl From Detroit City' on digital download only. This brand new song was recorded in 2013 and is exclusive to this compilation.

Written and produced by Mike Chapman, the song speaks of Suzi's early days in Detroit and her discovery by Mickie Most.

50 years on and Suzi Quatro has no intention of slowing down. She's about to embark on another massive live tour and in 2015 she will finally publish her poetry in a book called 'Through My Eyes'.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
