I spent quite a while trying to pick a good Status Quo compilation as there are so many to choose from. The two most popular compilations from the past few years seem to be the Pictures:40 Years Of Hits and XS All Areas. Both are fine but the Pictures compilation leans too much towards Quo's later pop-oriented period for my liking and XS All Areas is pretty good except I noticed it contains a slightly edited version of Forty Five Hundred Times which annoyed me. I then stumbled across this rather obscure compilation - 'The Status Quo Story'. I decided to buy it and it is by far the best Status Quo compilation out there. It contains pretty much all of the Quo's best known songs plus some excellent album tracks including the previously mentioned Forty Five Hundred Times which is here in all its ten minute glory. It also contains the longer album version of Down Down as opposed to the shorter single version which is is great! All the tracks are in a nice chronological order and the sound quality is top notch, disc 1 is dedicated entirely to classic era Quo spanning from their 1968 hit single Pictures Of Matchstick Men right up to tracks from the Blue For You album (their last truly great album). Disc 2 contains all of the Quo's more polished later period pop offerings which includes obvious hits such as Rockin All Over the World and Whatever You Want. I'm less into this stuff but it's all included nicely and there for those who enjoy it. To top it off the compilation includes a nice 24 page booklet which includes some great pictures and informative notes on the story of the band.

If you want the very best of Status Quo this is the one to buy.

It's got a terrific front cover too.

Having been a Quo fan for some 30 years or so, i should like it, to be honest, this is the start of the Quo at there best , having made some less rockier cd's. this one is well recorded, the traks aretop class & the extra tracks are good, also the price is goog.
over all, it's just what the doctor orered.

This takes me back to my teens. Listening to Piledriver in my bedroom and going to see them at the Apollo Theatre in Glasgow wearing my jeans and cheesecloth smock top. Feel some of the sound quality could be slightly better but oh how it takes me back.....!

I absolutely love it. It's a brilliant album. It sounds great with the volume up driving along the motor way.
