More About The ‘Official Archive Series’
Rousing, energetic, and full of joie de vivre: ‘The Wanderer’ by Status Quo is an unf orgettable rock song that gets everyone dancing. Its unique magic can be felt especially in this wonderful live version. This track is the second single release from the upcoming album ‘Official Archive Series Vol. 3 – Live At Westonbirt Arboretum’, capturing the band’s electrifying performance in a way that transports you right to the heart of the concert. An absolute earworm that stays in your head long after you’ve heard it.

The ‘Official Archive Series’ offers exceptional sound quality and great packaging throughout, featuring photography by Christie Goodwin. The Series has been freshly mixed and mastered by Eike Freese and Laurin Halberstadt at Chameleon Studios Hamburg.

‘Vol. 3 – Live At Westonbirt Arboretum’ was recorded on Sunday 22 June 2008 as part of the ‘In Search Of The Fourth Chord’ UK tour. This was the tenth show of the year, and was part of the ‘Forest Live’ initiative by the Forestry Commission, and in fact was a return to the venue for the band who had performed a short run of ‘Forest Live’ shows as part of the ‘Heavy Traffic’ tour of 2003.

‘Vol. 3 – Live At Westonbirt Arboretum’ is a further release of the Status Quo ‘Official Archive Series’ presenting the raw energy and infectious enthusiasm of a Status Quo live performance; no matter where in the  hooks, the band delivers an unadulterated rock ’n’ roll experience, and this collectible series is a great way to celebrate one of the greatest live acts of all time.
