exactly what you would want from a Quo photo book
on 12 November 2013
I remember getting the original version of this book as a very welcome Christmas present about five years back. It's basically a coffee table book for Quo fans, but why shouldn't we have one.
It's a fully authorised book of personal and professional photographs of the band, starting back in 1966 and coming right up to the present day. And I assume the Frantic Four reunion is why it's coming out again. It's also nice to see a 2009 quote from Francis Rossi telling us, bluntly, that said reunion would never happen.
It was compiled by road manager, songwriter and moothy player, Bob Young, and is exactly what you would want from a Quo photo book. As someone who grew up in the seventies, the pictures from that era bring it all back to life. I haven't done a compare and contrast myself, but someone considerably sadder than me reckons that there are 32 new pages covering Quo activities over the last 5 years.
Whether that's enough to justify upgrading is down to you, but if you didn't get it first time round, then you should make a point of getting it now. A visual treat.
