What's not to like?,
This review is from: Ma Kelly's Greasy Spoon (Audio CD)
In my opinion, this to me IS Quo; this to me is what they are all about. Spinning Wheel Blues is your archetypal twelve bar blues as is Juniors Wailing and Lazy Poker Blues but it ends there. This has to be one of my favourite Quo albums of all time, being a joint number one with Dog Of two Head and people who say all Quo's stuff sounds the same obviously haven't heard much, and I've played this to them and they've become very surprised when I've told them who it is. My fave tracks from this album are Need Your Love, April, Spring, Summer and Wednesdays and the immortal Is It Really Me/Gotta Go home - That Hammond organ riff is just mesmerising. I wish they still did these tracks live but sadly they don't. These tracks are proto Heavy Metal and I could see some modern metal band covering these and making them sound cool for a new generation, hmm that gives me an idea...
