Comments: 1971 saw the band release the album 'Dog Of Two Head' thus confirming their natural shift to 'rockers'. Three tracks from the album are performed on this boot, Some one's Learning, Umleitung and Railroad.

Remaining ever popular Status Quo have long passed the 'parody of their own selves' stage, into 'cultural' rockers, whose often predictive sound, still sells out concert after concert, along with a lot of product.
