TAKE FLIGHT WITH HARD ROCK HEROES UFO IN A SUPER DELUXE BOX SET OF VINTAGE LIVE PERFORMANCES FROM THE EARLY ‘80S!
NEWS / Los Angeles, CA - They shot across the ‘70s night sky, all flashing lights and roaring engines, streaking through Japan and Germany (where they abducted 18-year old Scorpion guitarist Michael Schenker) before descending on the UK and eventually American shores with a series of brilliant hard rock singles including “Lights Out,” “Too Hot To Handle,” “Doctor Doctor,” “Only You Can Rock Me” and many more now ubiquitous radio staples. Though Schenker would depart in 1978, the rest of the band including founding members vocalist Phil Mogg, bassist Pete Way, and drummer Andy Parker alongside lead guitarist Paul Chapman retooled their spaceship and carried on into the early ‘80s dropping such influential classics as No Place To Run, The Wild, The Willing & The Innocent, and Mechanix.
Now, comes Live Sightings, a magnificent 4CD box set featuring vintage live performances from the early ‘80s that finds Mogg & Co. blasting through highlights from those 3 crucial records such as “No Place To Run,” “Lonely Heart,” and “We Belong To The Night,” and seamlessly blending them in with the group’s more well-known spawn. Boasting 4CDs each in its own mini jacket with printed inner sleeve, this extraordinary box set also features a lavish 12”x12” 16-page booklet with full color photos and extensive liner notes plus two carefully duplicated printings of vintage tour programs. There’s even a special bonus live LP from 1972 of the only known recordings of guitarist Larry Wallis (Pink Fairies / Motörhead)! Fans of UFO and early hard rock will not want to miss this incredible piece of music history. Launch date is February 5 courtesy of Cleopatra Records!
