1999 THE WAY IT GOES (edit) (Rossi/Frost) (3.20)
Sea Cruise (H Smith)(3.07) - Under The Influence album trailer (Various) (3.45)


Producer: (all tracks) - Mike Paxman
Compact Disc single - EAGLE EAGXS075
Released: 8 March 1999

This was Quo's first UK single release for almost three years, and was their first for Eagle Records. The Under The Influence trailer comprised segments of: Twenty Wild Horses - Under The Influence - Round And Round - Little White Lies - Keep 'Em Coming. The track Sea Cruise was witten and originally recorded by Huey 'Piano' Smith who recorded the track with his group (The Clowns), but was pursuaded to let Frankie Ford overdub the original vocal. This decision eventually lead Ford (accompanied by Smith & The Clowns), to notch up a US million seller in 1959.

Eagle Records originally planned to release two versions of this single, with the second replacing Sea Cruise with the band's cover of I Knew The Bride (a cover of Dave Edmunds 1977 hit). Although scheduled for release on 15 March this second disc was cancelled.

This second single from the Under The Influence album was issued simultaneously as a two part CD collection.

Meanwhile Driving To Glory was a new track that was written and recorded for the soundtrack of a German TV motor racing programme called Benzim Im Blut (Petrol In The Blood). Pictures Of Matchstick Men was a re-recording of the band’s first single release as Status Quo, some 31 years earlier.
