An Original uncut sheet for the 7 inch Vinyl single Rock n Roll by Status Quo The cover indicates that the A-Side is Rock n Roll and the B side contains Hold You Back and Backwater (at 33 1/3rpm) The  single, was  released in 7 different versions across Europe in 1983 This appears to be the UK released version The proof sheet contains two uncut flat single proofs and measures approx 42x38cm in total. It carries the serial no QUO6 The proof was found as part of the Shoot That Tiger Archive The award-winning Art studio who were responsible for producing some of the most recognizable and iconic album and single covers from the 70s-90s. Although the studio may not have designed the cover the proof was found in their archive. This is most likely because they had been commissioned to work on more status quo covers by the rcord company and were using proofs sent to them as a reference. Original Proof artwork is extremely rare, it is generated from the Original Production artwork that is sent to the Printer. Normally only a handful, if that, were produced for inspection and approval by the artist. management and/or record company. As a result most of them were thrown away after approval. Some proofs were rejected and never used, these are the true rarities. The uncut proof would make a great conversation piece framed for the discerning Quo collector.
