"Spare Parts" is the second album by the English rock band Status Quo, and the final one in the psychedelic vein. It is also the first in which the group's roadie Bob Young began writing and co-writing songs for and with the band.
The album covers a number of songs by Carole King, including "You're Just What I Was Looking for Today", and "Velvet Curtains".
Only one song was slated for a single release. This was a cover of the Carole King song "Are You Growing Tired of My Love", backed with the Alan Lancaster composition "So Ends Another Life". Released in April 1969, only two months after their previous single "Make Me Stay a Bit Longer", the single was a failure, only reaching #46.
The album was released in September 1969 and, like its single, flopped.
Following the disappointment of the album, the band released a non-album single - the Everly Brothers' "The Price of Love", also released in September 1969, with the Francis Rossi & Rick Parfitt composition "Little Miss Nothing" as the b-side - which was also a commercial failure.
Status Quo's second album, "Spare Parts", was released in August 1969, hot off the back of "Picturesque Matchstickable Messages" (originally on Pye NSPL18301). Spare Parts was the second album released by Quo and is now re-issued on Castle Communications.
