By Dr. Joseph Lee #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Dec 17 2009
Format:DVD
If you like Status Quo, even a little, you need this DVD and you won't regret the purchase. Excellent picture, sound, crowd, song choice, energy, you name it. It feels like you're there and the entire show puts a smile on your face. Even if you're not a HUGE Quo fan, you'll enjoy this one. It's just good time rock 'n' roll played by a bunch of guys who obviously like their job. A++

5.0 out of 5 stars Status Quo LIVE GET IT! True Rock & Roll Feb. 26 2010
By npa
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This disc is a must, outstanding performance and the audio quality is superb. Recorded in Switzerland in July 2009. 243 mins of pure enjoyment. Status Quo has release great albums. The Party Ain't Over, Heavy Traffic, Searching for The Fourth Chord. This Blue Ray is the only way to hear and see this band. The video and camera work including the flying boom/cam is fabulous. The Montreux concert has 22 LIVE tracks with songs that are previously mentioned and more. Also on bonus "The Story of 40 Years of Hits" interviews with Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt with the beginning of Quo and their early lives around 10 years old to present. Rick Parfitt had triple bypass heart surgery at one time that saved his life. Francis is quite enjoyable to watch and listen to in the interviews and old photos and videos of the band from the late 60's and 70's and so fourth. The documentary is very well done which has a lot of history of the band. Don't hesitate this may be discontinued later this year as I find with a few CD'S and DVD'S on Amazon. You'll have a good time partying with the Quo. Watch for my review with Bad Company LIVE at Hard ROCK on Blue Ray.

4.0 out of 5 stars venerable rockers Status Quo bring bone crunching boogie to the Montreux Jazz Festival... March 10 2012
By trebe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
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. Looking quite dapper, Rossi sticks with his well worn vintage green Fender Telecaster, throughout the entire show. Parfitt changes guitars a few times early, but also favors a vintage tele that looks like it has served him well for decades. It's clear that it is the sound, not appearances that matter to these guys. The guitarists share the vocal chores with Parfitt being more of a boisterous shouter, while Rossi is more laid back.

The setlist spans the band's career, including their first hit the psychedelic "Pictures Of Matchstick Men" performed in medley with bouncy "Ice In The Sun". The bands crunches along like a freight train on their most heavy numbers like "Rain", "Down, Down", "Caroline", "Roll Over Lay Down", "Is There A Better Way", "Mean Girl/Softer Ride", and "Drive My Car". The band also covers "The Wanderer", Chuck Berry's "Bye Bye Johnny" and "Rock `n' Roll Music", and John Fogerty's "Rockin' All Over The World". About midway through, after pounding the audience with the "Proposing Melody", the tempo slows a bit, and the introspective "In The Army Now" is a really interesting change of pace for the band, as is the snakey blues of "In My Chair". Parfitt and the boys sound downright mellow on "Living On An Island", before cranking things back up for a powerful finish.

Capturing a really solid performance from this hard rocking bunch on what is clearly a good night, this DVD is highly recommended to their fans. There is a nice insert with color photos, and some thoughts about about the history of the band. Bonus features includes interview segments with Parfitt and Rossi, who a year later in 2010, would each be awarded the OBE (Order of the British Empire) in their native land, for their contributions to music and also humanitarian causes.
5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing concert, the best way to enjoy Status Quo Live. Dec 28 2013

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.
