Celebrating a new chapter in a nearly 60-year career as a trailblazing rocker, Suzi Quatro brings her signature style to a series of iconic covers on her new EP from the legendary Sun Records label.
Suzi Quatro: Uncovered reminds us why Suzi is “The Boss,” and features tracks originally made famous by artists like James Brown, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Otis Redding, and Carole King. As a bonus, she calls on the legendary Steve Cropper for collaboration on his own songs, “Midnight Hour” and “Sittin’ On The Dock Of The Bay.”
The Sun story began when Sam Phillips launched his record company in February of 1952. He named it Sun Records as a sign of his perpetual optimism: a new day and a new beginning. Sam rented a small space at 706 Union Avenue for his own all-purpose studio. The label was launched amid a growing number of independent labels. In a short while Sun gained the reputation throughout Memphis as a label that treated local artists with respect and honesty. Sam provided a non-critical, spontaneous environment that invited creativity and vision.
