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.

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.

Although Status Quo had only 2 charted hits on Billboard in US, the picture in UK is vastly different. Their first hit was Pictures Of Matchstick Men in 1968. Since then up to now, they have amassed a total of 64 charted singles in the British chart, more than any group in UK history. They have Top 20 hits in each of the past 5 decades. Status Quo has sold over 118 million records worldwide.

In 2008, Status Quo released the very collectable Pictures: 40 Years Of hits box set with 4 CDs and a table size book containing paintings contributed by other artists. This is a must-have for all Status Quo fans, containing all the singles released during their career. Be careful not to mistakenly buy the abridged 2 CD set with the same name.

This blu ray disc was filmed in 2009 when Status Quo rolled into Montreux. Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt delivered a blistering set of classic tracks covering their 40 years of hits with giant screens behind the stage, illustrating high points from the Quo's career. There were 22 songs in the complete concert, although some were in medley form.

Video: It was filmed in 1080i at 1.78:1. The images were very sharp and detailed. Eagle Vision has done a good job in bringing the concert to video. (4/5)

Audio: There is a choice of DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital and LPCM Stereo. Of course one would choose DTS-HD MA, with excellent sound. Singing track was very distinctive, and the band was very tight with good beat and bass. Very well done (4.5/5)

In addition to the full concert, there is also a new documentary "Pictures: The Story Of 40 Years Of Hits". The total length of the concert and documentary is a staggering 243 minutes.

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.

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.
