The Best of Suzi Quatro on Disky is a fairly solid collection of Suzi’s early rockers. Leading off with the furious one-two punch of «Can the Can» and «48 Crash,» the pace is fast and wild from beginning to end with a couple of ballads for breath near the end. Quatro doesn’t get the credit she deserves for being a female hard rock pioneer; in the U.S. she is seen as Leather Tuscadero from Happy Days first and foremost, with her recording career an afterthought at best. That is a shame because Suzi could flat out rock. With the help of Mike Chapman and Nicky Chinn’s songwriting and production, she created a body of work that is almost equal to Joan Jett’s. «I May Be Too Young,» «Devil Gate Drive,» «Daytona Crash,» «Heartbreak Hotel»; these tracks should have been blaring from 8-tracks and car radios in every subdivision all through the U.S.A.. Well, you can’t change the past but you can do your part now and pick up a Quatro collection (this one is a good choice, though not the best) and play it really loud as you cruise the streets of your town.
