4.0 out of 5 stars A Full English, verily..., 1 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ma Kelly's Greasy Spoon (Audio CD)
From the halcyon days of 1970, when Status Quo were trying to shuffle off the Psychedelic Bubblegum pop image of the 'Matchstick Men' era, comes 'Ma Kelly's Greasy Spoon', a refreshing and pleasingly varied set which set down a few markers of where they would venture forth to become one of Britain's most enduring combos, and also a few blind alleys that they wouldn't really revisit. Of course, because it was originally on the Pye label, the production values tend to the somewhat cheese-paring and miserly, but the band make up for such shortcomings by way of some pretty nifty songs. 'In My Chair' is still a mini-masterpiece of stoner, nodding out blues, whilst 'Daughter' shows that they still had some vestiges of their Pop band days. 'Down the Dustpipe' is still a pretty rollicking little outing, and 'Gerdundula' lumbers along pleasingly. I don't even mind the acoustic ballad 'Everything', which is a slight trifle that is nicely placed here.

The BBC bonus tracks are worthwhile additions, too, and this is a nicely-packaged snapshot of the bands' pre-Vertigo glory days. Very enjoyable, like a good Full English Breakfast. Easy on the baked beans, though...
