The live recordings

When a live version of "
Don't Waste My Time" appeared on the Reading Festival sampler in 1973 it was just the first of many live recordings to become available on official releases.

Since this date, Status Quo have released a number of live concerts on album/CD:

Notes:

The 2006 concert was recorded for DVD release mainly, but a limited edition came with an additional CD.
The 2009 concert was released on DVD originally. The CD release was two years of the release of the original DVD.
All concerts of the 2013 reunion tour were recorded and released as MP3 files. The concert in Glasgow was released as a vinyl album, the Hammersmith recording was chosen for CD release.

Furthermore one live EP (1975) and one Japan-only live album (1976, 4) were released as well. Various other live versions on appeared as b-singles releases and on other occasions, e.g. the "Rockers Rollin'" anthology. This page lists all official live recordings in alphabetical order, including the BBC sessions (3) which were also recorded live. Follow the links to see on which records a live version of the song in question appeared. (Please note that the year of the concert/recording is given, not the year of the release on record!)

In 2010 a 2/4/7 CD set was released (to be added to the list below) presenting a number for recordings not available before. The CD set covers the entire carreer of Status Quo.

Many more concerts were recorded by fans and appeared on bootleg recordings. Currently only recordings are listed which appeared on either vinyl or CD on official releases.
