It is 1968 or 1969, some year like that, and Gaffer Peel is compere at a rock festival in Nottingham. The organizers expected a crowd of 40.000, got 400, and a poor time is being had by all. Band after band has numbered us with meaningful stuff about the revolution (whatever happened to it anyway?), or bored us with their suite base on 'Alice Through The Looking Glass'. I'm supposed to dart between the two stages to announce each band but I'm busy trying to fascinate a young woman (unsuccessfully, I'm afraid) and this shower get on stage unnnounced. "Ello", the below, stirring the stoned handful out of their torpor, 'you're not gonna like us at all, we make hit singles and we're very loud'. They didn't, they do and they are. At the time I was outraged. Who, I asked myself, are these outrageously vulgar yobboes? We wanted beauty and thruth, not rowdiness; certain substances, not brown ale.
Status Quo played, unabashed and basic, and since then, secretly at first because, I mean, Quo weren't, as we said then, where it was at, I've been a believer.
Amazing to think that when they first annoying the neighboors from scout halls and cricket pavilions, John Kennedy was still alive, only a fistful of daft Scousers and Hamburgers had heard of the Beatles, and I was selling crop insurance in West Texas. Even more amazing in this is - thirteen years on, their music is so fresh and vital that wherever you do a disco you know it's going to be a either 'Brown Sugar' or a Quo record that finally get's them moving. You know too, that there's always goign to be a row of loonies - Maybe including you - who'll get down into that celebreated Quo boogie stance and churn to and fro like creatures possessed. Status Quo are good lads, they make exciting and unpretentious records, they make me feel positively carefree, have saved many a potentially disastrous gig for me, and if they rock on for another thirteen years - well that's just fine by me.

Live is the first live album by British rock band Status Quo. The double album is an amalgam of performances at Glasgow's Apollo Theatre between 27 and 29 October 1976, recorded using the Rolling Stones Mobile Studio. The worst album we ever made, said guitarist and singer Francis Rossi. I always thought we were better than that. Rick Parfitt and I were left to mix it, and we went through the recordings of the three nights we played, only to pick the first one. I disagree with my old pal there. Status Quo Live - Status Quo.

Recorded, with perfect timing, just as Status Quo hit their live peak, 1977's double Live album is, contrarily, a timeless reminder of just how much power and excitement was bound up in the band through the mid-'70s - and on, in fact, into the early '80s. Live - Status Quo. The ultimate live album from one of the best live rock bands in the world at the height of their career. Recorded live at the Glasgow Apollo in 1976, this is Status Quo at their very best. And with a collection as good as this we can forgive Alan Lancaster's little mistake getting the words to Bye Bye Johnny mixed up. The sound is a lot less polished than other live albums, due to the lack of overdubs, which can't be a bad thing. Live Status Quo album. Live is the first live album by English Rock band Status Quo. It contains 2 discs. It is an amalgam of performances at Glasgow's Apollo Theatre between 27 and 29 October 1976, recorded using the Rolling Stones Mobile Studio. 1 Track listing. 1 Disc 1. 2 Disc 2
