"A short review.This was their second album and almost all those who have anything to say about it ,say "terrible" I however do not agree.The group at the time was making a change to boogie woogie.Fine.The tracks on spare parts are just what one needs if one likes this Beatle-Bubble gum sort of psychedelic pop. The instrumentation and harmony is tight.Do not let the semi-critics steer you wrong!!.Enjoy the music and remember:The late sixties were a time of change.Enjoy the last of it 1969 without any nay sayers in your midst.I enjoy the songs everytime i listen.My favorites include-Face without a soul,the brass and strings are great;Mr mind detector only in that time would you hear something this wonderfully dated.Little miss nothing of course!Basically the whole album.Have fun sincerely SS"
NIce follow up, lads!

""Spare parts" was Status Quo's, second album. It is, probably, their most forgotten one. At the time of recording, the band was signed at "Pye" records, and the producer Jhon Schroder with his distinctive production- style was imposing it on the band.If you love the early Bee Gees albums, the very early Bowie and the Move, you will Love this one. Great pop- songs with a wonderful combination of fantastic guitar-work and a full orchestra. Try "Poor old man" "Antique Angelica" and "So ends anothe life" were you will witness a clear progreassion of band mambers as songwriters, "Little miss nothing"'s with Rossi's most convincing vocal preformance, and Alan Lancastare finest "The Clown"."
Excellent sophomore release by these Matchstick men

"Status Quo's follow up to their successful debut, "Picturesque Matchstickable Messages from the Status Quo" in 1969 is not as poppy as their first disc, but shows the band's transformation from psychedelic hitmakers to a heavier, bluesier sound.The music is remastered, and the whole thing is repackaged with nice new liner notes that detail each song. Two bonus tracks are also included (see below).That being said, "Your Just What I Was Looking For Today" (also included on this disc as "Hey Little Woman") is one of the coolest droning psychedelic tunes out there."
