Main Attraction is the eighth studio album by rock singer and bassist Suzi Quatro. It was recorded between December 1981 and March 1982 then released in November 1982.[1]

This is the only Quatro album that does not contain any cover songs. She had a hand in composing each track apart from Chris Andrews' "Two Miles Out of Georgia".

It was the first of several remastered reissues by Cherry Red Records on CD. Released in 2008, it contained the single version of "Heart of Stone" as a bonus track. Cherry Red have since released other Quatro remasters, as well as releasing her latest studio album, In the Spotlight.
