Suzi Quatro / The Girl From Detroit City : 4CD deluxe box set


Next month sees the release of a Suzi Quatro anthology which, incredibly, coincides with the anniversary of the British-based American singer/songwriter’s 50th year in the music business.

The Girl From Detroit City is an 82-track, four-CD box set which comes in a hardcover book package (boasting a stunning cover image) and features a 54-page booklet with track annotations by Suzi herself (and Phil Hendricks). Additionally, Michael Heatley has written an 20,000 word overview of Quatro’s career, so the booklet sounds packed with readable content.

All the music has been remastered (by Tim Turan) and the track listing below will reveal a smattering of alternative versions and demos across the four discs.

The Girl From Detroit City is released on 27 October 2014.
