Status Quo Continue On A Roll, March 8, 2006
By The Footpath Cowboy ˝rockerusa2002˝ (Kingston, NY United States)
With BLUE FOR YOU, Status Quo continue playing straight-ahead blues-boogie as only they and a few other bands can. The songs are, with a few exceptions, great, and the bonus tracks, especially the B-side ˝All Through The Night˝, show that a lot of great Quo material that didn’t made the original albums should have. ˝Is There A Better Way˝, the CD’s opening cut, explains why I’ve given up food-related functions at my old school in favor of looking good for a number of TV and movie hotties. Some reviewers claim that this was the band’s last great album, but they continued making top-drawer albums until the early 80s. The band members’ belief that the young Australian tourist jailed in Indonesia since last spring on drug-smuggling charges was unjustly convicted makes this CD an essential purchase for both your ears AND your conscience.
