Take Me Away
(Rick Parfitt/Andrew Bown)

Produced by Status Quo And John Eden
Line-up: Francis Rossi, Rick Parfitt, Alan Lancaster, John Coghlan, Andrew Bown, Bernie Frost

"Take Me Away" was written by Rick Parfitt and Andy Bown, who were frequent songwriting partners in late 1970s/early 1980s. The song first appeared on the "Never Too Late" album in 1981.

Album:
Never Too Late [4:47]
UK: Vertigo 6302 104, March 1981

Takin' Care Of Business
other title: TCB
(Randy Bachman)

Produced by Mike Paxman
Line-up: Francis Rossi, Rick Parfitt, Andrew Bown, John 'Rhino' Edwards, Matt Letley, Bob Young

Performed by Francis Rossi

Tango
(Francis Rossi/Bernie Frost)

Produced by Francis Rossi
Line-up: Francis Rossi, Rick Parfitt, Andrew Bown, John 'Rhino' Edwards, Jeff Rich

The track "Tango" is an unusual recording by Status Quo as the song leaves the archetypical 12 bar blues scheme to offer a tango-style interlude. Although not appreciated by many fans "Tango" shows the band's musical potential and provides an interesting listening experience.

The Greatest Figher

Originally "The Greatest Fighter" was intended to be the title track for the album that eventually turned out as "Ain't Complaing". Though recorded by Status Quo the band did not release this song for many years so it did not show up until the release of Francis Rossi's solo album, for which he re-recorded the song as "The Fighter". In 2001 - 13 years after recording it -  the original version appeared on the anthology "Rockers Rollin' - Quo In Time".

Although "The Power Of Rock" stayed in the set list only for a short time after releasing the track on album, it became a fans' favourite, probably one the band's best efforts of the so-called "new" line-up.

An early mix (provisionally titled "Fighting For Love") appeared on a Dutch bootleg around 2002.
