Live Alive Quo was the third live album by rock band Status Quo and was broadcast live on BBC Radio 1 as part of the station's 25th Anniversary 'Party in the Park' celebrations in Birmingham, England. The concert was watched by nearly 125,000 fans. The last 3 tracks are taken from a separate concert at Wembley from 1990.

Roadhouse Medley is a 20-minute track, consisting of the main riff from The Doors' song "Roadhouse Blues", long instrumental sections and a medley of Quo tracks "The Wanderer", "Marguerita Time", "Living on an Island", "Break the Rules", "Something 'Bout You Baby I Like" and "The Price of Love". This medley section from the middle was released as a single. The track "Caroline" is the encore from the live set.
