In response to Cyrille Regis, BBC 2 repeat the Adrian Chiles documentary, Whites v Blacks, How Football Changed A Nation, unbelievable true story, worth watching

There is a three-part article coming up for E.L.O (Eldorado, A New World Record and Out Of The Blue). Look out for it soon.

Stoke City condemned 2 relegation. Who is the new manager? Paul Lambert.

Agreed Reyno about Clyde Best, further back is the story of Walter Tull which is quite heartbreaking, links to Northampton and lived in Rushden.

Big loss is Cyrille, only short time at Wolves, but I was at the Peterborough game where he scored the last minute winner, Cyrille and Laurie C, what a team.

I think many people forget guys like West Ham's Clyde Best whenever the subject of the impact of black footballers in the English game crops up. He was just as good as the West Brom trio years b4

Cyrille was part of the ground breaking so called 'three degrees' who did so much to break down racial barriers in Football back in the late 70's.R.I.P

Quatro, Suzi - 1973 Can The Can

ARTIST: Suzi Quatro
ALBUM: Can The Can (Australia)
YEAR: 1973


LINEUP: Suzi Quatro - lead vocals, bass * Len Tuckey - guitars, backing vocals * Alastair Mc Kenzie - piano, mellotron, backing vocals * Dave Neal - drums, backing vocals

TRACK LISTING: 01 48 Crash * 02 Glycerine Queen * 03 Shine My Machine * 04 Official Suburban Superman * 05 I Wanna Be Your Man * 06 Primitive Love * 07 All Shook Up * 08 Sticks And Stones * 09 Skin Tight Skin * 10 Get Back Mamma * 11 Rockin' Moonbeam * 12 Shakin' All Over * 13 Can The Can


Detroit's Suzi Quatro burst onto the early 70's glam rock scene with a string of hit singles and an attitude not seen from a female artist up to this point. She was tough, dripping in leather and she rocked, influencing a generation of female musicians, including 'I Love Rock n' Roll' Joan Jett among others. With numerous tours under her belt supporting Slade, Alice Cooper and Uriah Heep, Quatro was a bona fide superstar in England and Europe, yet an unknown in the United States until taking a supporting role on the TV show 'Happy Days' as Leather Tuscadero which was followed by a love it-or hate it hit single in 1979 'Stumblin' In', a duet with Smokie vocalist Chris Norman - another 'popular in Europe' artist who was never heard from again on US airwaves.

The Songs
For a debut, 'Can The Can' isn't half bad with the two hit singles '48 Crash' and the title track written by none other than the dynamic duo of Mike Chapman and Nicky Chinn who at the time were pounding out Mascara and Glitter coated rock for Sweet and Mud. Both songs are unmistakable Chapman/Chinn sugar pop with hooks galore and empty calorie lyrics, but who cares? These guys knew how to write a pop song! Elsewhere on the album, Suzi covers The Beatles 'I Wanna Be Your Man' and Elvis Presley's 'All Shook Up' and both are fun, but the original material co-written with husband and guitar player Len Tuckey pales in comparison with the rest of the record sounding more as filler for an artist that always came across better with her singles, a fate similar to Sweet in their early days.

In Summary
The album was released in Australia known as 'Can The Can'. In all other territories the album was simply titled 'Suzi Quatro' and released mainly through the RAK label. Quatro has recorded several albums in the years since, all of varying quality but are worth checking out. Suzi is still touring Europe on the oldies circuit and has recently released a live DVD called predictably 'Leather Forever' as well as putting out a new single available for download on her web site. Nice to hear and see she's still kicking out the jams!

Loved Suzi Quatro. She was one of my earliest pin-ups thanks mainly to the posters in 'Look In' magazine.

Remember getting this back in the day, love this album. A 4 CD box set has just been released of Suzi`s work, well worth investigating and her autobiography "Unzipped" is a decent read too.
