Introduction

Our aim has been to produce, for the first time, a fully illustrated guide to the UK vinyl records released by Status Quo. Complemented by promotional copies, test pressings and acetates, contemporary adverts and reviews (not always too kind) we aim to cover each variation of the discs and sleeves available. You may well have something to add - if so, please send us a scan. We welcome any additions and feedback via the new contact page. See here for the latest updates and credits.

Since our launch, the singles pages cover all UK releases. We are working through the albums as time and research allows and the first 100 are live now. For now we hope you enjoy the pages that are here, but check back regularly for updates.
