BACKGROUND INFO (ABOUT THIS RELEASE): Formed from the ashes of the rock and roll freakbeat band The Spectres they changed their musical style to psychedelic when they became Traffic (later renamed Traffic Jam), until finally settling on [The] Status Quo (and progressing to a hard rock/boogie sound soon after. This was over 45 years ago and they are still going strong â€“ a testament to their enduring songs and dedicated fan-base. In 2005 this album was produced to celebrate their 40th anniversary with some of The Quoâ€™s biggest hits and those from their peers. Sit back, start your engine, and enjoyâ€¦ (Volume 1 of a 2 part set; Volume 2 sold separately).
