UFO Collection Due In July

Thursday, June 9th 2011 01:00

New box set collects together five studio albums, unreleased material and Strangers In The Night

UFO: The Chrysalis Years (1973-1979) collects together all of the songs UFO recorded for Chrysalis Records during the 1970s.

This 5 disc set chronologically charts UFO's career, from the obscure 1973 German single 'Give Her The Gun', up to 1979's single version of 'Doctor Doctor', backed with it's live b-side, 'On With The Action' (available on CD for the first time).

Collecting together all five studio albums to feature wunderkid guitar virtuoso Michael Schenker (who was only 18 when he originally joined the band for 1974's 'Phenomenon') this anthology also includes 'Force It' (1975), 'No Heavy Petting' (1976), 'Lights Out' (1977) and 'Obsession' (1978). As well as BBC radio sessions recorded for Bob Harris and John Peel, single edits and rare remixes, this collection boasts a previously unreleased 45 minute concert from UFO's debut US tour. Recorded in 1974 at Atlanta's Electric Ballroom, the multi-tracks for this concert were recently discovered in the Chrysalis vaults, and have been given a brand new mix at Abbey Road Studios.

Featuring rare live outings of 'Give Her The Gun', the pre-Chrysalis song 'Prince Kujuku', and most interestingly, UFO's eight minute interpretation of John Lennon's 'Cold Turkey', this gig offers an insight into the early days of this important and influential, British rock institution.

Completed by the top ten breakthrough double live album, Strangers In the Night, recorded on Michael Schenker's 'farewell' tour, the package also includes liner notes based on a recent interview with UFO vocalist, Phil Mogg.
