Back about 100 years ago, I heard UFO for the first time. This was back in the early days of FM radio in the US, when the DJ's could play pretty much whatever they wanted. Anyway, the local FM station kept playing Rock Bottom and Doctor, Doctor. I purchased the album (Phenomenon) and loved every song on it. I went in search of other UFO albums, and the record store told me the one before Phenomenon was a live album. I bought it (this one)immediately and literally flew home to check it out. While my initial impression was not as good, over the next few days it began to really grow on me. A VERY energetic live performance, with excellent playing by all involved. Mogg's voice is superb and the three musicians shine. Many people seem to be unable to get past the Schenker-era, either pre or post. That's a shame, because UFO is a great band, with or without Schenker. The live album is the pinnacle of their pre-Schenker career, with the vastly underrated Flying also worth exploring. Check this one out for a young band blazing away on stage. Also noteworthy for being one of the first hard rock live albums to be recorded in Japan. As a bonus, the CD has live photos that weren't in my vinyl version.
