It's a belter. I could easily make a compilation of album tracks only to compliment a singles collection.

It is. I've completely revised my opinion of that album now. Another album that only had one single but should have had more.

For sure.

I like some of those early 70s albums (Ma Kelly's Greasy Spoon is pretty solid) but 'Rockin' All Over The World' and 'What You're Proposin'' are really only for gormless cunts who drink cocktails and holiday in caravans.


What's gormless about drinking cocktails?

I am guessing you mean "Long drinks" and you don't know the difference, but even that is a bit odd.

Nothing beats a good G&T or Cuba Libre ( those are not cocktails they are long drinks btw)

Quo were great up to the point that they weren't, I'd time that somewhere around Marguerita Time ( a cocktail ) +/- 2 years

Why would you guess I meant long drinks when I said cocktails?

I don't really go for Ma Kelly and before.
But starting with Dog of Two Head:

Gerdundula (I know it was released as a single but it wasn't a hit and it is never on compilations)
Nanana
Don't Waste My Time
Big Fat Mama
Softer Ride
Forty-Five Hundred Times
Backwater
Drifting Away
Little Lady
Nightride
Is There a Better Way
Rolling Home
Can't Give You More
Dirty Water
Hold You Back

15 Gems.
Ah but I was so much younger then.
I'm older than that now.

Indeed.

I'd add:
(April) Spring, Summer and Wednesdays and Lakky Lady from Ma Kelly's
Someone's Learning and Umleitung from Dog of Two Head
A Year from Piledriver
Lonely Man from Quo
For You from RAOTW
Stones from If You Cant Stand The Heat
Over The Edge and Coming and Going from Just Supposin

15 Gold Bars! But do you think you could squeeze in Too Far Gone ?

Live version of Forty Five Hundred Times is needed, the studio version is poor. (April) Spring, Summer and Wednesdays is superb. A must have on any Quo compilation.

Status Quo is one of those bands that just didn't get played on U.S. radio. Consequently, I only know what I've heard on cd's I've bought by them, and those all predate the material on this compilation, it seems.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?
