Status Quo - Blue For You (1976)














Artist:  Status Quo
Title:  Blue For You
Release: 1976
Format: LP
Label: Vertigo
Catalog#  6360128

“Blue For You” is the ninth studio album by English Rock band Status Quo, released in March 1976 and is both the last album to feature the 'Frantic Four' lineup (due to Andy Bown officially joining the band as keyboardist following its release), and the last one they produced themselves, which resulted in subsequent albums having a noticeably lighter, more pop oriented sound.
"Is There a Better Way," the sleazy barroom vibe of the title track, and the six-minute closer, "Mystery Song", “Blue for You” married vintage Quo with a progressive eye that boded well for at least another few albums' worth of quality quo-tations. Elsewhere, however, "Rolling Home," "That's a Fact," and "Rain" suggested a paint-by-numbers approach that hadn't simply isolated all the ingredients that brought the band its mass appeal, it then boiled them down to the lowest common denominator as well.
