This album was originally released in the early 70's 2 or 3 albums into their heavier denim era. It often seems to get over looked in favour of the more popular Hello or Piledriver albums but in my opinion, this is the best of all of their early albums.
It starts off with the unmistakable Backwater. Sung by bassist Alan Lancaster, this is a fantastic blues rock song with a great story line and driving rhythm. It has the trademark 12 bar riffage, but played with a real passion that was certainly missing during their 80's stuff. The mix into Just Take Me sees drummer John Coghlan at his absolute best.
Muso's quite rightly discuss the values of John Bonham, Cozy Powell and Ian Paice but guys, Coghlan is right up there with them. Just listen to the way he mixes power with feel on Just Take Me and the way he leads the time changes during Slow Train, not to mention the great drum solo...the most underated rock drummer from that era!!
Break the rules is an absolute classic, again blues rock at its best with Rossi in story telling mode. After the brilliant Drifting Away, which again sees Lancaster at the mic, Don't Think It Matters, Fine Fine Fine and Lonely man are great album tracks leading into the afore mentioned Slow Train.
It really bugs me when lazy writers churn out the "3 chords" stereotype thing, because Slow Train is a classic piece of 70's rock...great riffs, time changes, story telling, jigs, drum solo's, heavy rock, the works. You just have to turn the damn stereo up, batter your eardrums up some more and nod ya head, because this is rock music at its best!!
The addition of Lonely night on this re-mastered version is a welcome treat, nice finisher.
This is the classic Quo line up of Rossi, Parfitt, Lancaster and Coghlan at their peak.

'Quo' is a great album and has been reviewed many times so this review is solely for the 'bonus' disc with this supposedly deluxe edition. I am not sure that a dreadful, audience recording can really be called a 'bonus' or should be included in a deluxe edition but it has been and I feel ripped-off. To be honest, after the live box set I shouldn't be surprised and to be fair, I half expected it but it doesn't make it any more palatable. What is doubly annoying is that the band, as usual, were clearly on sparkling form and if the sound was better this would be a great live CD. So to sum up, this is one for the die-hard fans only who have to have absolutely everything.

The original album is a fantastic album. However, the live concert on the bonus disc is unlistenable. The sound quality is awful.
it makes The Velvet Undergroud's Live At Max Kansas City sound like a Quincy Jones produced album. Avoid.

Status Quo continued their inexorable rise to superstardom with 'Quo' - quite simply an amazing record!
Continuing the trend of their previous releases 'Piledriver' and 'Hello', 'Quo' absolutely rocks, with every song right out of the top drawer.
From the opening of 'Backwater' to the closing number - bonus track 'Lonely Night' - Quo just put the pedal to the metal and don't let up for the whole album.
Surprisingly, only one single was ever released from the album ('Break The Rules', charting at No 8) I say surprisingly simply because of the excellent quality of the songs on offer, and now it seems quite strange that they didn't release at least one more single - 'Backwater', 'Drifting Away' or 'Don't Think It Matters' would have fit the bill quite nicely, in my view.
A top class album and an absolute must have in any collection!

While the original CD is, and always will be, brilliant and is Quo at their absolute best. The bonus CD, live in Paris 73, is truly shocking quality and the fact the band thought is was acceptable to be released in this form sadly shows the level of contempt they hold the fans in.
Simply do not waste your money of this, just find a remastered version of the original cd without the garbage of the "bonus" disc

In my humble opinion the best quo album ever,this disc showcases a band totally confident in its own ability and the music is all the better for it.Following on from the superb HELLO album this is even heavier,strangely it only got to no2 unlike its predecesor (and subsequent following albums on the level/blue for you)

Opening with riff-tastic 'Backwater' flowing into 'Just Take Me' featuring some quality drumming from coghlan,'Break the rules' follows and is the only atypical Quo track,not surprisingly it was the albums only single,'Drifting Away and Dont Think it Matters' return us to heavier waters,had sabbath used some of these riffs you would have talked about them for years.The diversity of the band is highlighted by the atmospheric 'Lonely Man' and the stunning 'Fine Fine Fine' with its country rock feel and a beautiful solo from Rossi(so underated in the bands heyday),finally the piece de resistance 'Slow Train' an epic following in the footsteps of 4500 times,this starts of slowly before working itself to a frenzy with a couple of jigs, excellent drum break before crashing to a breakneck finish,marvelous stuff.

bonus track : 'Lonely Night' superb little track but never going to oust any of the original album tracks.

All in all despite being released in their popular 70's phase this really is a undiscovered gem,reaquaint yourself with it,you wont be disappointed
