Status Quo Quo'Ing In: The Best Of The Noughties
Release Date: November 25, 2022
With Quo’ing In: The Best Of The Noughties, Status Quo deliver an era spanning compilation taking in their greatest hits from the band’s output thus far in the new millennium, which includes five Top Ten studio albums and many fan favorites.
As well as all of the key tracks from this important era of the band’s career, the collection includes brand new and never before available 2022 studio versions of the classics “Rockin‘ All Over The World,” “Paper Plane,” and “Caroline,” plus brand new 2022 studio remixes of live favorites ”Backbone” and “Cut Me Some Slack.”
Kicking off with tracks from 2002’s Heavy Traffic, which was the first proper album of the Noughties, this set also draws from The Party Ain’t Over Yet (2005), In Search Of The Fourth Chord (2007), Quid Pro Quo (2011), Bula Quo! (2013), Aquostic: Stripped Bare (2014), Aquostic II: That’s A Fact! (2016) and 2019’s Backbone, plus a few other gems from along the way, including tracks with Brian May and the Beach Boys.
A best-of unlike any other, Quo’ing In is the sound of a band rediscovering their mojo, shot through with a sense of fun and that irresistible Quo gang mentality. The Limited Edition 3CD Deluxe Digipak features a bonus disc with 10 previously unavailable live classics, newly mixed in 2022.
“Coming into the Noughties we were under pressure. This was a time of change and the band that recorded ‘Heavy Traffic’ was different to the one that laid down ‘Backbone’ but what did not change was the passion, energy and desire to build on what had gone before. The fact that so many of the songs fitted into the live sets along the way is testimony to their strength.” – Francis Rossi, August 2022
