Introduction

Our aim has been to produce, for the first time, a fully illustrated guide to the UK vinyl singles 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 contacts page.

We intend to move onto vinyl albums too, but for now we hope you enjoy the singles pages.
