Bootleg CD Albums 1990-1998


This section lists a selection of the most well known Quo CD bootlegs. Over the last few years there has been an explosion of Quo CD bootlegs and it is pretty much impossible to try and keep track of them all. There is also the problem of how to define a bootleg - as with the computer technology now available it is possible for anyone with a modern P/C to make their own bootleg CDs.

"Heavy Daze" and "Better Times" were the b-sides to the planned "Fakin' The Blues" single. The next three tracks, "Long-Legged Girls", "Don't Give It Up" and "Lonely" had previously not been available on C.D - they were the b-sides of the "Dreamin'", "Red Sky" and "Rollin' Home" singles respectively. "She's A Mystery" was an Alan Lancaster song recorded here in demo form and later issued by his Party Boys band. The song was also recorded by The Bombers.

It was thought, at the time, that "Waiting For The Day" and "You Set The World On Fire" were from Francis Rossi's and Bernie Frost's, as yet, unreleased album "Flying Debris". They were in fact by the Swedish band Freeway and were correctly titled "Looking For A Way" and "Soul On Fire". The next four tracks were demos recorded, for the "Whatever You Want" album, at Trend studios, Dublin in November 1978. Only "Shady Lady" was included on the album. "Invitation" was later recorded for the "In The Army Now" album. Both "Another Game In Town" and "Rearrange" have never been officially released.
