Editorial Reviews

Status Quo's album "Pictures" (released in November 2008) celebrated 40 years of Status Quo filling the UK charts with hit after hit. The album was an instant success, charting at No.8 and selling over a quarter of a million copies in the UK alone. In July 2009 the Pictures live tour landed at Montreux in Switzerland as part of the world famous festival. The band, led as always by the twin Telecasters of Francis Rossi & Rick Parfitt, delivered a blistering set of hits and classic tracks from across their career including no less than 18 UK Top 20 hits. Huge screens behind the stage illustrated high points from Quo's career and the usually reserved Swiss crowd were rockin' all over the Auditorium.

Format: DVD
Pictures Live At Montreux features the English band Status Quo in a tour de force performance at the world famous Montreux Jazz Festival, recorded in 2009. Befitting the event, the production of this is DVD is first class, as the band plays over twenty of their songs, in a show that runs about 100 minutes. Camera coverage of the large stage is good, and image quality is excellent, although at times the pace of the editing is a bit too brisk.

Going by different names prior, the band Status Quo was "officially" christened sometime in 1967. Their sound underwent a makeover in the early 1970's, becoming kind of a blend of blues, boogie, and good old fashioned foot stompin' rock and roll. With a mostly pure guitar sound, much like ACDC, Status Quo accomplishes a lot with a few basic cords, as the band excels in establishing a heavy groove and playing the hell out of it. Forging on through the years, these veteran rockers are now probably in a class by themselves. For over forty years, guitarists Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt, have kept Status Quo viable, through the seas of changing musical tides, as their solid working class rock and roll still retains its appeal.

Rossi and Parfitt, who are both over 60 at the time of this performance, might be pacing themselves a bit, but these guys definitely still rock very hard, and don't seem to have lost any enthusiasm for performing. Rounding out the lineup are versatile Andy Brown on keyboards, guitar, and harmonica, and bass player John "Rhino" Edwards, who have both been in the band for nearly two decades, and relative newcomer Matt Letley on drums.

Status Quo is very solid on stage, playing without flash or pretense.

Being a bonafide Quo fan I'd say this is the rockingest concert I've ever seen. It's
Rock with a Capital "R". This concert does not slow down, & it has old & new Quo music, loved the setlist. Don't hesitate just buy it now.

Having recently rekindled my listening pleasure with this band thought I would give this DVD a try. Extremely glad that I did. To begin if your are in any degree a Status Quo fan you should purchase this right away. If you just like high octane rock n' roll you should also buy this. Status Quo puts on an excellent performance highlighting many of their best hits. They play tight and professional throughout the entire performance. I don't have a high end home theater system but I found both the audio and the camera work to be top notch. I watched portions of this DVD almost everyday for a month. Whereas I used to like this group on a more casual basis; they are now among my favorites. The extras are basic, interviews with the two lead members Rossi and Parfitt - they are informative and enjoyable. But its really the concert, right! Enjoy!

This is Status Quo on a top notch concert. the setlist is pretty neat and the image and sound quality is a great example of how a concert must be produced. Each member of the band show us what is Rock n Roll about, and every camera shot last enough to feel the "live" vibe. Just get comfty, turn it up and enjoy.
