Live At The NEC was the second live album released by Status Quo, recorded at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham in May 1982.

- Little Lady (On The Level)

There are five repeats from Status Quo Live – Caroline, Roll Over Lay Down, Backwater, Little Lady and Don’t Waste My Time. You gain the big hit singles Rockin’ All Over The World, Whatever You Want and Down Down. Unfortunately you also lose important Quo songs like Big Fat Mama, Roadhouse Blues, Bye Bye Johnny and Forty-Five Hundred Times.
Personally I prefer the Status Quo of 1976 captured on Live.
Francis Rossi – Vocals & lead guitar
Rick Parfitt – Vocals & guitar
Alan Lancaster – Bass & vocals
Andy Bown – Keyboards
Pete Kircher – Drums
Here are the group performing Rockin All Over The World live in 1982.
