“Look Deeply Into the Mirror”
1973, Evolution #3021
Far from being the guy-alone-in-his-room performer that this cover suggests, Michael Quatro was a classical music prodigy (performing with the Detroit Symphony at age 7), a Detroit rock producer, and million-selling recording artist. He’s the brother of Patti & Suzi Quatro, the original female rock stars of the 60′s.
This track features Ted Nugent on guitar. Nowadays, I think it would be more likely to find Ted Nugent chasing hippies like Michael Quatro off his land with a shotgun in one hand and a rack of beef ribs in the other.
Michael recently had his own recording and promotion company, but as the website hasn’t been updated since 2004, I don’t think it went much of anywhere.
“The Last Rainbow”
1981, no label
Larry is one of those “bedroom recording artists”… A guy who seemingly wrote, performed, and recorded his album by himself in his room. As you might imagine, interesting things – both good and bad – often result from having no one to tell you if your ideas are terrible or genius. A BizarreRecord is sure to be the result!
FROM THE LINER NOTES:
“This album was written and recorded in my bedroom in Houston, Texas during the months of September through December of 1980 using Tascam 8-track equipment.
Drum tracks supplied by Drum Drops, Woodland Hills, CA.
All other instruments including electric and acoustic guitars, Alembic bass, Arp Omni, Arp Avatar guitar synthesizer, all vocals, compositions, arrangements, concept, design, and production……. Larry Voltz.”
I can’t find anything current about this guy. I wonder if he’s still around? Probably hanging around at Numbers (Houston people will understand) bitching about how much better the music was 30 years ago.
