For her third album, Your Mamma Won't Like Me!, Suzi Quatro, Mike Chapman and Nicky Chinn brought in horn sections, back up singers Sue and Sonny ( who had sung with Joe Cocker on "With a Little Help From My friends), and a new attitude.
"We had never played so well," wrote Quatro in her autobiography Unzipped. "And the band really cooked--funky as funky can be."
The band enjoyed playing "I Bit Off More Than I Can Chew" so much, they let the tapes roll for ten minutes. The public wasn't so taken. This would be her last charting single, peaking at only #54, until 1977.
Did Thom Bell hear this single? Sounds like he borrowed the bass sound Suzi played for The Spinners's "Rubberband Man".
