The Pleasure Seekers was a 1960s-era, all-female garage rock band from Detroit,Michigan.The band morphed into Cradle,changing direction musically.They are known due in large part to the later prominence of bandmember Suzi Quatro.

Following an entertaining intro (by DJ The Lord,of,the Quatro sisters original composition "Gotta Get Away" comes on heavy with a wall of organ and guitar likes a snarly Detroit version of an Avalon ballroom mainstay!This is the first taste of seven previously unreleased '60s recordings by Michigan's Pleasure Seekers.It was long rumored the girls had laid down more in the studio than the three singles well known to serious rock & roll fanatics,but now the wait is over.
