Hello! Guilty Pleasure, June 28, 2000

Hello
Many pleasures in life are privately enjoyed, yet publicly decried. Reading intentionally disposable magazines, watching mindless television, surfing the Internet--all relaxation in the form of guilty pleasures. In the realm of popular music, Status Quo is a guilty pleasure. Status Quo's fans concede that the group is an oddity, something that cannot be explained, but which nonetheless enjoys unparalleled success in Britain and embarks routinely on world tours (which, sadly, do not often include North America). The Hello! recording, in particular, has immediate historical relevance for North Americans, though. The Hello! album cover was the model for the Spinal Tap recording that would emulate it, just as Status Quo itself was the primary model for Spinal Tap, the band. Hello! is also the recording that cemented Status Quo's music in the rock annals. The songs exhibit the songwriting that launched the band's superstardom in most of the world. "Roll Over Lay Down"...

...do yourself a favour and buy one the 70's Quo albums!Hello, Piledrive, On the level ,Quo, live ,blue for you...all five stars.It's a hundred percent BOOGIE, not too bright but so well done!The rythm section is just a rollin' machine, a solid foundation to guitar harmonies and blasting solos.Hello is one their finest work, not a single bad or even so-so song.So buy it, turn the volume up to 11 on a 10 scale and let's BOOGIE!!

If anyone can listen to "Caroline", "Roll Over Lay Down" or "Forty Five Hundred Times" and not want to hear everything else available by this phenominal band, you don't know what Rock 'N Roll is. Everything they've done is no less than superb!!
