The Frantic Four reunion section!

Hello! How ru? awright!?

First out on this section, again thanks to Luke Hargreaves; is a reunion compilation:

Reunion comp. The Frantic Four; Disc1




Sunday, September 22, 2013


Though there has beeen a few video's on here, I think the time's come to introduce a whole section for it, so here you go and welcome and enjoy!

First video is from Zürich 2009, Big Fat Mama!

First concert in video form, is:

From the Ain't Complaining tour in 88' (wasn't it? My memory slips... ;)  )
It is a full gig, a link for each song, starting with Whatever You Want, and it's a real gem of a concert with Rossi Jamming away not once but twice even, yup...Love the setlist too, though personally I'd swap WYW with Caroline, but who cares what I think, not me anyway, so here you are:

Status Quo; DVD's: NEWS:
Awaiting a solution to share DVD's online, then I guess this section  will have had it's time. Not quite sure what to do, as the shipping is too expencive, and for the moment I do not have the right equipment either, my largest computer needs repairs, so til' I find out how and what to do, please place no orders. I'll try and think of another way this can benefit the Shona Smile org. though, as that's one of the prime motives for this section.

Thanks to the helpful fellow Quo-fans at the Status Quo message board; DVD's will now be distributed for free. Due to the sheer amount of DVD's, ca. 5 DVD's will be offered at a time.

The ones offered now are:
EOTR and NEC 82 - both full gigs.
Early Quo Vol. 1 and 2.
A critical Review of...
Neza 2003', and the abs. gem:
The Lost Files.

Also, 2nd round, the offers are; pick 5 out of the 7 offered:
Heavy Traffic; H.M.S Ark Royal

Quo Are Back In Belguim (Brussel 21.06.86')

Rock Til You Drop, The Documentary:

Madrid75 +extras from; Stafford, Bingley Hall 77' and London, Marquee 72'

Off The Road + extras; live at the Marquee 72', DWMT and Paper Plane:

Out In The Green 86':Good gig. Sound ok, guitars a tad low in the mix though. Ok set, a bit short, (edited gig I suppose), excellent pic.wise. Rick smashes into one of the double black Marshall racks, and it just about...manages not to tip.LOL

Pro-shot Germany - "Ohne Filter" 99'

If you have some of these, please feel free to pick up to three others from the list below...

Contact me or visit the Quo MB, where you'll find topics with information of others to contact aswell.
Delivery time will be a little longer due to the nature of this collaboration.

Due to the high postage in Norway, 5 DVD's will be the limit for me to send out for free; so if anyone wants more than 5, you'll have to contact Blue For you City (and others that hopefully also will offer their help - Quotiger has already helped out, and he will hopefully also be of assistance in the future) and an arrangement will probably be arranged.

The DVD's are free; all that's asked in return is a voluntary donation to the Shona Smile foundation...

Payments: Paypal, use this email-address:
(Some price examples:
1 DVD - 5 Euros...
4 DVD's -10-15 Euros...
10 DVD's, - 30 Euros...
These are ca. prizes; in reality it's often now as low as 10 DVD's coming to 25 Euros. All depending on the postage; sadly the 2nd highest in Europe...Also; something which has been practised from the start, which I see I should have had in writing on here; anyway...:
Only about 50-60% of all orders will be charged.This is down to a strict non-profit policy; which is the reason I got the thumbs up from Quo's Admin on the Quo MB to have this blog and distribute bootleg DVD's and other material. It is after all, illegal by the letters of the law; but spokesmen for Quo said they chose to 'turn a blind eye'; based of course, on the non-profit policy and the absence of any material officially published.
I ask of everyone visiting here a favour: As material is officially released all the time, and more and more bootlegs find their way into official published material; please help me to keep an keen eye out for new official material; so if any on here is officially published material; please email me straight away and make me aware of it. Any such material will then be removed asap.
All orders will be carefully handled; with a close communication to the one in the recieveing end. This to make sure you get the most honest and best treatment possible as a Quo-fan and user of this blog.
The policy and intent of this blog is to help spreading Quo bootlegs, for free or as cheap as possible. Any temporary 'profit' will find it's way into Megaupload Premium membership - which is needed to multi-upload files - and the ensuring of best as possible copies of DVD's.
The non-profit policy is strict, and held in the highest regard.
It's is a blog with a secondary intent to help get rid of the criminaly high-prized Ebay transactions and similar; where Quo bootlegs change hands for ridicilously high prizes.
It is if course down to each and everyone what they do with their money, but bootlegs should not ever be means to make money; thus the strict non-profit policy is what is first considered in every distribution of DVD's.
I ask of you, also; if you could see it in your heart to support the Shona Smile foundation.
In practical terms on here, it will mean donating a small sum of money to the Shona Smile foundation every time you recieve free DVD's from me. (Link further down...)
It is a blog by a Quo fan, and for Quo fans.
TIA: Teleboogie
OzQuo, thank you for your help with the DVD's mate!:-)
Also a big thank you to all that is helping in making this possible, with feeding me boots, DVD's, links, allready too many to name (truth is there are many, but I've no longer controll of who sent me what! LOL), but you know who you are; Thanks!
