- The Quo--Great 70's CD

Why these guys never made it big in the U.S., I'll never know...This album is proof positive that the Quo can rock as hard as anybody you care to name. Down Down, Little Lady, and their blistering cover of Chuck Berry's Bye Bye Johnny will melt your speakers!! Nice sonic upgrade from what I am sure were not the greatest tapes to begin with...This is the last of the "raw power" Quo discs; after a muddy live album they brought in outside producers and tried to smooth off the edges in a bid to be accepted into (U.S.?) more mainstream markets...I highly recommend this CD as well as Blue For You, Hello, Quo, and Piledriver if you want more of this...For a more detailed account of this group, see my blog at ulice.blogspot.com.....

- The Quo Should Have Made It Here

With ON THE LEVEL, Status Quo's fourth great CD in a row, it becomes even more shocking that these guys couldn't crack the U.S. market. It's hard to see why, especially since songs such as "Down, Down" and "Nightride" have a sound that would have been huge in this country if there hadn't been a glut of such bands here. The band members' belief that the young Australian tourist jailed in Indonesia since last spring on drug-smuggling charges was unjustly convicted makes this CD an essential purchase for both your ears AND your conscience.

- quo at the peak of their game

Quo make a classic hard rockin' cd here. It's boogie rock and has several hit singles too including the number one hit single. "down down" one of the best type of boogie rock ever written anywhere. It's up there with 'slowride' by foghat for sure. I think quo released nothing but great discs from 1970-82. and they had 13 releases not counting 2 live ones during that period! 83-99 was decent enough but this was still the great era of quo. though in the 00's they made some great cd's for sure! the band started in 66 and became quo in 68. Their first 2 discs were psych pop but they managed to have some classic hits during that period songs like 'pictures of matchstick men' , "ice in the sun' , 'down the dustpipe' and 'in my chair' so that early 1968-70 period is worth collecting, but this is flat out the bands best release imo.

- Rock 'n Roll

These guys deserve more praise than I can ever give. This album rocks from beginning to end and barely lets you catch your breath. If you're looking for sappy ballads or navel gazing songs, go somewhere else.

If you don't know who these guys are, buy this album and prepare to be surprised.
