Status quo looking out for caroline

Bula Quo is the thirtieth studio album and the first soundtrack album by English rock band Status Quo, it was released on Monday 10 June 2013. It is the last Status Quo album recorded with drummer Matt Letley, who announced his departure from the band before the album had been released.


A double album, its release coincides with the band's first feature film of the same name, and features many of the songs from that movie. In addition to nine new songs, the album also features, on its second disc, studio recordings of four of their previously released songs. One of these – "Living on an Island" – is a remake in a Fijian style (in keeping with the film's setting), while "Rockin' All Over the World" features in a special edited version. Two further studio recordings, "Frozen Hero" and "Reality Cheque", were culled from the band's previous studio release, Quid Pro Quo (2011).

The album also features live versions of six other previously released songs, spanning the band's entire career from "Pictures of Matchstick Men" from their debut album, Picturesque Matchstickable Messages from the Status Quo (1968) to "Beginning of the End" (from the 2007 album In Search of the Fourth Chord). These tracks were recorded in concert during 2009 (from Live at Montreux 2009) and 2010 (from the "Official Bootleg" CD that was added to Quid Pro Quo). To promote the album, Status Quo appeared on BBC One's magazine show The One Show on Tuesday 11 June 2013.
