"The Quatro girls were the first all-female band that played instruments well, and forerunners for many bands to follow. One kick-ass band" -- Dennis "Machinegun" Thompson of the MC5.

Detroit in the 1960's was the musical ground zero for everything from Motown to the MC5....
In that time of social and political unrest....
Before the Vietnam conflict.....Before the Women's Lib movement, Before the summer of love...
The Quatro sisters were starting a REVOLUTION for WOMEN WHO ROCK!

The Pleasure Seekers lived, played, partied, and rocked the music scene in the Renaissance era of the 60’s, when female musicians were looked upon as “novelty acts”. The Pleasure Seekers and the music they played gained the attention and respect of Detroit “male rockers”, as well as the legends of the era. In just under five years, the Pleasure Seekers toured extensively throughout the U.S., Canada, and the Far East, as a headliner, as well as being support for acts like the Yardbirds, Eric Burdon and the Animals, Joe Cocker, Mountain, Alice Cooper, Procol Harem, Badfinger, MC5, Bob Seger, Iggy Stooge, and many others.

The historic recordings (many previously unreleased by the Quatro sisters) capture the beginning of their rock-n-roll revolution. The Pleasure Seekers were a forerunner, changing the myth of female musicians. Rockin it raw, with edge and attitude, they took over the garage, and unleashed their “Detroit Rock City” music on an unsuspecting world, starting a revolution for women to rock their music hard. To this day, these multi talented sisters are known as the teenagers who dared to go where women had not gone before, against all odds, stomping their way into a male-dominated heavy rock scene. THE GIRLS FROM THE GARAGE HAVE ARRIVED.....

The Pleasure Seekers- Musical Roots of the Quatro Sisters
The Pleasure Seekers, who had a reputation in the '60s as the best and earliest all-female garage rock band. Starting on a dare, The Pleasure Seekers had singles out by the time they were in their mid teens, and were the youngest female rock musicians to be signed to a national label. With the multi-talented sisters Patti, Suzi, Nancy, and Arlene Quatro, these teenagers dared to go where women had not gone before, against all odds, stomping their way into a male dominated heavy rock scene. This CD comes with a 6 page full color insert full of history and photos.
