Well I have listened to it twice. I have also listened to the band mix once.
I am no sonic expert but do prefer the band mix. Feels better to my ears and I guess that is all that counts.
A solo album from the machine. Much we have heard before its release. Have to admit it sounds a whole lot better from my cd than the links I had heard.
As for the music it is quite a mix. I am never going to love some this, the likes of Twinkletoes and Long distance love are just not for me.
There are some decent rockers on here. Better in my view than stuff on the last couple of Status quo releases. The ones that stray close to Status quo are decent rockers. Does feel odd not having Francis lead breaks on a Rick track, guess it shows how distinctive his playing is. Also I know that's the whole point of a solo release.
It is clearly not just Francis who likes a bit of ELO. As Rick has wrote a couple of tracks that would have done the Travellin Wilburys proud. Especially on When I was fallin in love.
There are two or three rockers that are very decent on here. Nothing to remind you of his former song writing mind you.
So far its a thumbs up. A solid 6/10. Which means its on a par with anything Status Quo has released since Never to late in my view. A sad reminder of a fallen talent who's personality shines through. You can hear, the twinkle in his eye as he wrong some of this.
Just shows you. I definitely would have used Fight for every heartbeat as a radio single. The best song written by a member of Status quo in 20 plus years.

Rhino plays bass on Lonesome Road ( specifically at Rick’s request the quote in ftmo is something like “ it became clear to Rick that Rhino had to play bass on this one” and also on Everybody Knows How To Fly
quodec: Quo at their early primal riffing best. Imagine if we had the full gig to watch and listen to. Its a crying shame so many 70s bands have recordings of their shows, but not Quo. Was it lack of money that their shows were not taped, or were they not in the b

backwater67: Looks like fretbuzzzz has based his sales on BPI sales awards. Back in the 1970s & 80s silver sales were based on minimum 250,000 units sold. (Today silver sales are awarded for 200,000 units)

granny: But @4th Chord regarding your new rule...if the man running the country (Dominic Cummings) can weave a fairy tale around known facts why can't we be just as creative?

juansupposin: 21st September 91 at Wembley, the 45 min Guinness concert, probably not the best concert to start, only 45 min, I remeber thinking they will play longer because it was the last concert

backwater67: Paul Hirch filled in for Quo when Andy’s wife was unable to tour. Aquostic was a complete different project for Quo. I was referring to a standard regular live gig on stage with session guitarists. Jagger does still take the lead vocal.
