4.0 out of 5 stars Get this! 29 Oct 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
What a good band the Quo were in their psychedelic period, and what a great sound. The stereo mixes let the quality of the playing, particularly by Alan Lancaster, stand out. The BBC recordings present some previously unreleased, and unfamiliar tracks, which are great, especially 'Bloodhound'. The album is let down by the harmony vocal on 'Sheila' [dreadful], and the "electronically reprocessed stereo" mixes of 'Black Veils..." and 'Ice in the Sun". Perhaps the orginal masters no longer exist? Apart from that, this is a facinating little album, well worth a spin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun Pop Psychadelia 18 Dec 2006
By KC - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Of course, you get one of the Top 100 Rock 'n Roll tracks of all time with PICTURES OF MATCHSTICK MEN and while on the surface, many of the other tracks offer echoes of "Matchstick Men," that would be like complaining many of the Ramones tracks sound the same :-)

However, a deeper listen reveals the true pop psychadelia genius of the Status Quo - not only do most the tracks hold up great - they are all great fun - and a showcase of great musicians and great songwriter. While these are museum quality tracks - these are definitely not just historical timepieces but tracks that are just as relevant and fresh today.

This CD definitely belongs in everyone's collection of great rock n' roll.
