From 'Pictures of Matchstick Men' in 1968, to the Ultimate Quo collection 'Pictures - 40 Years of Hits' in 2008. This set is an excellent retrospective of Quo's 40 years in the business. The four CD's covers their whole career, with 76 great tracks including their first Christmas release 'It's Christmas Time', which is also their 75th single. The collection is mounted in the front of a lavish 12" x 12", 120 page hardback book featuring copies of the pictures painted by various stars and artists, who have created their own versions of classic Quo album and singles covers. The originals having now been auctioned in aid of The Prince's Trust, making £100,000 for the charity. The presentation of this collection is also excellent and is well worth the extra money over the cost of the basis two disc, forty track collection, and will most certainly be a collector's item in the future. May Quo still be Rockin' All Over The World for many years to come, hope to catch them on the current leg of their extended farewell tour in Cambridge in February 2009.

Ignore the miseries, this is a really good rockin' album. I have kind of mocked these guys for years - yet having heard this CD I am amazed how many of the tunes I actually know and really like. You'll probably be the same. What more can I say? It's cheap as chips. Give it a listen. Hell Yeh!!!!

When I received this I was taken aback at how good it is. A lovely hard back book, intro from Prince Charles then reproductions with associated write-ups of all the paintings (pictures) that were done for Status Quo's charity auction at Bonham's which raised £100,000 for the Princes Trust just before Christmas 2008 (how that wasn't reported in the press/TV is beyond me). And then you get 4 CDs of Quo's music as well attached to one of the hard inside covers - just fantastic, definitely a treasure to keep.

I can't improve on any of the reviews that are already written.

Suffice to say the record company have done Quo proud, not only did they release this magnificent set but there's also a companion 2 cd and a hardbook version with a dvd!

Quo's music makes you feel good and having seen them twice in recent years in concert made me realise just how good they are and they work very hard onstage to ensure we all have a great time.

The hits old and new are here plus album tracks, anniversary medleys and their Xmas single.

It's also good to see the lavish illustrations - painting of their album sleeves by their peers.

If you like Quo, you will relish this set!

this is a quo Fans paradise, all their very best in one place, this Album delves into the Quo's early years to present day, it covers more than just the rock beat that is the trademark of this great band,,it also covers their more subtle style of play, it is a mixture of rock and easy listening and more than that, Status Quo also show their ability in reproducing the original Rock N Roll classics, made famous by stars like, littl richard, chuck berry, dion and others, all wrapped up in a style that only the Rossi/Parfitt touch can acheive.

A must have item to anyone who has even a small regard for this Band, it gets no better..............

This album isn't aimed at or for Status Quo `diehard' fans, who know every track they've ever record; Nor the sort of person who wants to hear little known B sides, alternative versions of tracks and live performances.

This album is for the occasional fan, the sort of person who enjoys listening to The Quo's better known `commercial' hits.

Status Quo - Pictures: 40 Years of Hits (Earbook)

Simply a "MUST HAVE" for anyone who claims to be a true Quo fan. I have been a fan since 1976, the days of the original line-up! This album knocks spots off any other band's "best of" album.
It's a pity all good things must come to an end, but Status Quo will be here for a few more years yet. It would have been nice for the original line-up to perform together on this ultimate album. But the band will always be my favourite, I have all the albums from "Matchstickable..." to "Earbook".
