Maggie Bell - Suicide sal [1975]

In 1975 MAGGIE BELL’S second solo album was released to much critical acclaim having been recorded at RINGO STARR’s Studio, Tittenhurst Park, Ascot, England 'Suicide Sal' was a different sort of album to its
predecessor 'Queen Of The Night' as she had been playing live over the past year and the material had already been “road tested” and she captured on this release more of a 'rockier' live feel.

Fellow label mate JIMMY PAGE of Led Zeppelin even played on one of the tracks.

The release did particularly well in Germany and USA with one reviewer Tom Nolan stating “This LP signals Maggie Bell’s arrival as the fine, powerful singer we had been touted to expect. I have a feeling people will be playing this one for years” Enough said.
