  1. fan says:

    I’ll wait until Thisty Work and Don’t Stop are available separately from the box
    since the other records are easily available

    I really hate those box sets where you must buy again and again (no pun intended)
    what you already have

    Still waiting for the Deluxe CD of Blue For You……..

    Re Danny F:

    Small corrections:- Thirsty Work was indeed releaed on vinyl ( I have a copy) .

    From memory Quo performed some signing sessions of the album in HMV (?) stores in certain towns.

  7. Les London says:

    As a Quo fan since the early 1970’s there is nothing in this boxset to tempt me personally any real Quo fan has all this stuff time and time again anyway so not really sure who this is aimed at.

  8. Ollie Carlisle says:

    Shame the Rock Til You Drop bonus tracks aren’t uncluded on the Other Side Of. The updated version of 4500 Times is cracking. Definitely a mixed bag of a period in Quo history but they did find their feet again after with Under The Influence, Heavy Traffic, In Search Of The Fourth Chord & Quid Pro Quo so shame it stops with the, in this context, inappropriately titled Don’t Stop!

  9. Danny F says:

    It is a box focused on Quo fans indeed. Although it is probably true 80s/90s material is not close to their 70s heyday, records like Never Too Late, 1982, Back to Back or Rock ‘Til You Drop are great rock records which worth an opportunity.
    It will be first time in vinyl for Thirsty Work and Don’t Stop, although there is also a reissue announced by Demon of Don’t Stop in white vinyl (also Under the Influence in blue and Party Ain’t Over Yet in yellow).

  10. PeterJH says:

    Being born early sixties, and loving the 70’s, the 1st box was essential. This one is not. I wouldn’t buy it at half the price.

  11. patjoller says:

    totally… a complete waste of money considering the low level of quality material. Nothing beats the 70’s quo, so no need to fork over a lot of money for this.
    I still save never too late and rock oil you drop from the garbage pile

  12. Simon F says:

    The first Quo vinyl box set which I got from Amazon dirt cheap thanx to an SDE alert, was really good although IMO in should of included both Never Too Late and 1982 to make it a full ten years round up. Sadly after Back To Back the rot set in and this once mighty band headed downhill faster than the proverbial runaway train until they ended up like some utterly embarrassing end-of-the-pier act. A great shame, and I will not be adding this to my collection.
