The Suzanne record (BM 501) on Birchmount contains some cover recordings of pop
hits of the day and 4 tracks penned by Greg Hambleton and one by Fergus Hambleton.

"Island" originally appeared on the A Passing Fancy album and single played by different musicians.
"You Try" is the vocal version of what appears as an instrumental
take on the Tuesday's Children album on Birchmount.

It is unknown who exactly plays the music on this album.

On Suzanne's first album she sings This Girl's In Love, Traces, Island, I Love How You Love Me, and San Jose in her own characteristic style.
Hal David and Burt Bacharach are represented, in her opinion, by three of their best songs.
Suzanne, with a French Canadian background is only 21 and has been singing locally for only a short while when
she was discovered by Toronto songwriter Greg Hambleton. Keep your ears open as you are going to be hearing a lot
more from Suzanne.

Wonderful, breezy, female vocal psych/sunshine pop. Half original tunes by the Hambleton brothers from A Passing Fancy, half fairly well known covers. The Hambleton penned tunes are a delight; among them, a gorgeous version of "Island," originally included on the A Passing Fancy LP, later also recorded by Wayne Versage for his Birchmount album. This version masterfully brings out the full meaning of the lyrics. Suzanne truly does the Bacharach-David material justice, especially "Anyone Who Had A Heart." The remaining two cover songs are equally well done. Overall, a superlative record if you enjoy the style. Well worth your time checking out the samples on youtube, conveniently separated into originals and covers thanks to the Freqazoidiac.
