In Search Of The 4th Chord

In Search Of The 4th Chord by Status Quo
Released: Sep 2009
More than four decades into their career, these long-in-the-tooth limeys are still adept at chugging out the manly boogie that made them eternal stars in England. Much of this set easily could've been recorded in 1974: "Gravy Train" is all barbecue-riffed Southern rock locomotion, and the track list has its share of purist blues shuffles. But the real standouts sport a poppish bounce that suggests fellow oldsters like Golden Earring ("Pennsylvania Blues Tonight"), Slade ("Figure of Eight") or Foghat ("My Little Heartbreaker") updating their '70s stompage for '80s new wave consumption. How modern!
