Live Alive Quo is a live album by British boogie rock band Status Quo.
It was recorded at The Party In The Park, Sutton Park, Birmingham in August 1992 in front of nearly 125,000 fans. The last three songs came from a 1990 concert at Wembley Stadium in London.

The medley that starts and finishes with their classic cover of The Doors song “Roadhouse Blues” lasts for over 20 minutes. It was edited down and released as a single to promote the album.
On the one hand I appreciate the bonus songs from London but the live album purist that wants a proper concert recording struggles with the encore Caroline being in the middle rather than the rousing climax at the end.
Playing on the album are:
Francis Rossi – vocals & lead guitar
Rick Parfitt – vocals & guitar
Andy Bown – keyboards
John Edwards – bass
Jeff Rich – drums
