Released on 9th May 1986, Rollin' Home was Status Quo's first single release since October 1984 when they reached #7 in the UK singles chart with their cover of The Wanderer. Rollin' Home was the first track to be lifted from the album In The Army Now and peaked at #9 in the UK, but reached #1 in Ireland.
Since their first single release in January 1968 with Pictures of Matchstickmen
(#7), the Rock Band have released a staggering 77 singles and 28 studio
albums. They had eighteen Top 40 singles in the 70s, twenty in the 80s,
thirteen in the 90s and one (so far) in the 2010's which was a
re-release of In The Army Now that peaked at #31. So the 1980's turned
out to be the Quo's best decade!
