4.0 out of 5 stars The classic years and beyond 29 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD
UFO fans will be increasingly thrilled or frustrated with the arrival of yet another retrospective live release. Many will already be familiar with the material here and it was the inclusion of the DVD that mainly tempted me to purchase this latest box set. For fans of Paul Chapman, 'Tonka' features heavily and there's a truckload of fine performances - which include his short-lived partnership with Michael Schenker.

So here's a quick fly by what's included here (and some of what isn't):

CD1 1974

5 In Concert tracks from the Hippodrome, Golders Green on 6/6/74- a show which featured Michael Schenker and Paul Chapman together (although Chapman isn't credited). 3 of these - "Built For Comfort","Rock Bottom" and "Doctor Doctor" - appeared on the BBC CD released in 1992. (That disc also has "Shoot Shoot"). The two 'extra' tracks here are "Oh My" and "Space Child". On the previous BBC release, "Built For Comfort" had some crackles and sounded like it had been transferred from vinyl to CD. The CD's have all been remastered and this one sounds quite different - the crackles have almost gone (as has some of the audience, which alters the atmosphere). The booklet promises that "Every effort has been made to improve the overall sound quality" and adds "we hope that any audio flaws do not affect your enjoyment ..."

3 Bob Harris session tracks, which appeared most recently on the Chrysalis Years 'Vol.1' box set.

CD2 1975-77

6 In Concert tracks from the from the Paris Theatre show on 11/12/75 - The BBC "The Archive Series: In Session and Live in Concert" (1999) release had included "Let It Roll", "Mother Mary", "Out In The Street" and "Shoot Shoot"from that live show.

5.0 out of 5 stars UFO - As Only UFO Can Be - LIVE! 5 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As I have said many a time over, short of going to gigs, live albums are generally the best setting in which to hear a band. OK, sometimes the sound can be lousy (and indeed, can also be when you attend a gig!) but that most certainly has never applied on the numerous times that I've personally seen UFO live and, again, does not apply to this fantastic 5 CD / 1 DVD set all recorded at the BBC at various stages in the early years of the band.
Seriously, where can you lay your hands on so much excellent music for this kind of money?? And, yes, I know that some songs repeat over and over - but goodness me, this is from one of the best rock bands of the day, so you really cannot get tired of them.
For me though, apart from hearing the band at different line up stages, I would have purchased this just for the 1980 concert alone - I remember listening to it on the radio whilst I recorded it onto a cassette tape and I could have cried when that tape wrapped itself up in knots a year or two later on the car player rendering it as scrap, not realising that it would be 30 years before I would ever get to hear it yes, this has put a very big smile upon my face!
If you love UFO, then all the big hitters are pretty much here and, going over to the DVD - well, great for a chuckle just to see the fashions...!

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT BUT NOTHING A DIEHARD DONT HAVE 14 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
this is a fantastic box set for fans like myself that refuse to submit to modern times such as downloading and all the other ways to just steal or buy music online, im still after 35 years of buying lps, 45s and then cds in the later 80s an addict to the psyical product if you are like me and you have been a diehard ufo fan like me since 1978 then i think you may want to purchase this little box set that is soooo awsome, first off there have been a lot of ufo releases the past 15 years since the late 90s of unearthed ufo stuff and most of that is all on here, this bbc box has all the tracks that the single bbc sessions cd has that came out back in 1998, what you are getting here that i have never had is the june 1985 knebworth show wich honestly was not my favorite era of ufo the 35 years i have been a fan, i still to this day feel the misdomener period of late 1984/85 and half of 86 was ufo at there worst, it was sadley obvious at that time that chrysalis records where giving ufo a huge push for the american market and mtv and you sure can hear it on the album from 1985, in early 1985 i heard some rough demos that phil and co had done and they where much more heavy and rough then the final product that gave us misdomeaner in october 85, the demos also featured robbie france on drums ( rip) not jim simpson so there had been changed along the line as that record was recorded, anyway live at knebworth sounds great i love the fact that ufo opened there knebworth gig with blinded by a lie from making...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Compilation 30 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you're a rock fan in general and a UFO fan in particular, you quite simply won't spend a better 12.50 this year.

This band was way ahead of its time in 70's and 80's and all the highlights from that era are featured here.

It really is a superb addition to any collection!
