There are no shortage of live UFO releases, they keep coming thick and fast. Of course, none top the absolute corker of a live album, Strangers in the Night, which is rightly regarded as one of the best live albums of all-time.

However, the trouble with releasing so much live material is that you get a bit tired of hearing yet another rendition of Doctor, Doctor, Too Hot to Handle, or Only You Can Rock Me.

This release contains none of the classics, but what you get is a refreshing live album of often forgotten gems. Among die-hard UFO fans, Paul Chapman is overlooked in favour of Michael Schenker, but Tonka Chapman was as much responsible for the UFO sound as the tempermental German as he replaced him and stood in for him on many occasions - personally I think Chapman did his best work on Waysted's Save Your Prayers album. UFO have always had good lead guitarists, Laurence Archer and Vinny Moore, but the classic era is defined by Schenker and Chapman.

Chapman is supported here by Neil Carter, a rhythm guitarist/keyboard player in the Paul Raymond mode and according to the liner notes, made a big impact as a live performer. He later turned up in Gary Moore's touring band, before he ignored rock music and became a yawn of a blues-player that many are tired of today.

This UFO is Pete Way-less, which is a bit like Deep Purple without Roger Glover. Interestingly, just as this has hit the streets, they're touring without Pete at the moment while he recovers from a liver condition. He is replaced here by Paul Gray for this release, which means only Phil Mogg and drummer Andy Parker remain from the original line-up.

But don't let that put you off because this is a short, sharp and brilliant release.

This is the last performance of the great UFO in their heyday, featuring Chapman/Mogg/Parker/Carter. I know they have continued with various line-ups since, in fits and starts over the last twenty years, but this performance from 1983 marked the end of their 'classic' period. And jolly good it is too! Great sound, powerful guitars, and Mogg in perfect voice. What more could you want? The only gripe: I just wish they'd included the whole show (there was 15 tracks in the original setlist, I think).

Having been a lifelong fan of UFO and particularly fond the Chapman era, I remember buying the original on vinyl just for the 5 live tracks. The other three sides were a rubbish compliation of stuff any real UFO fan would have had already.

Whoever is in charge of the UFO Legacy now knows their stuff and should be patted on the back for digging out another 6 tracks and making this at last the relaease it should have been first time around. No its not the whole show but, this CD features live versions of classic Chapman era UFO songs not available on any other live album and demonstrates why in late 70's and early 80's the band were a force to be reckoned with. Quite why 'Long Gone' and 'Lonely Heart' are not considered on a par with some of the earlier 'classic' Schenker material is beyond me.

Given what happened over the next 10 years maybe they should have left it here.

What made UFO exciting 30 years ago (and now) was the hot lead guitar playing and Paul Chapman was a hot, hot, hot guitarist. Frenetic fretboard manouvering is in evidence all over these tracks.

The opening two tracks are unbeatable and Doing It All For You shines as the Chapman-era's Love To Love - and it's much better!

At the time it was recorded, it really was meant to be a farewell tour, and the energy and passion really shines through. The recording quality is excellent, and the mix is well balanced and clear. Chapman's solo on Doing It All For You is subliminal. Electric Phase, and Long Gone, have a menacing harsh edge. The album is fluent and polished.

Couldn't Get It Right soars above everything else for me, and sums up all that I love about UFO. They were such a good band, influenced so much in British Rock, but never quite got the success that they deserved. Listening to this album, it's even harder to work out why that was.
