4.0 out of 5 stars The Chapman years + 9 April 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Another cracker of a collection from Chrysalis; this time covering mainly the Paul 'Tonka' Chapman era - 5 albums over 5 discs, with extras certainly can't be faulted on value for money but what about the music? Arguably, this set documents UFO's peak and gradual decline and disintegration so although there is some classic material here - particularly in the first two albums, which proved that, yes, there was life after Schenker - it is also obvious that things started to unravel (increasingly numerous personnel changes never being a good sign).

First up then, "No Place To Run". Often criticised for former Beatles' producer George Martin's 'polite' production values. If his lack of experience dealing with a hard rock act shows in the restrained sound, I've always found the answer is to turn the volume up (try to 11 if you like). And there is much to enjoy in the production, with multi-layered guitars and subtle touches like added backwards guitar notes. As for the songs themselves, the atmospheric (instrumental) "Alpha Centauri" leads straight into "Lettin' Go" - a punchy rocker - and the high quality is maintained throughout. If (for many) the title track stands head and shoulders above the rest - another reason why the rest of this album is often overlooked - the original album closer "Anyday" shows just how well UFO could do 'light and shade' - superb stuff. There's only one track - "Money Money" - that falls slightly short here. A great, though often under-rated, album.

And then we have "The Wild, The Willing And The Innocent". As for taking risks, dispensing with a producer - any producer - at this point in the band's career was chancing it. High stakes indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one! 3 April 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a great collection of the Chapman-era UFO albums - 5 in all - plus the Misdemeanor album (featuring the superb Meanstreets)

One major gripe is with the fade-in at the start of Mystery Train: for me this ruins the song & I don't know how this could have happened with the remasters. My original LP had a scratch on this track so there was a percussive click at a certain point in the song - for years I thought it was supposed to be there... But the opening twang is crucial and was there on vinyl - here it sounds clumsy & botched.

Great music, great sounds. Amazing how talented Chapman was.

The booklet notes are unnecessary - this release is surely for the converted and more detailed history/backing info can be found elsewhere/online. There are several pages of writing/production credits and Phil Moggs recollections/quotes add nothing of substance (why give space to thinking High Stakes happened in the mid 80s??)

If only music was made like this nowadays...

5.0 out of 5 stars Chrsalis Years UFO 1980 -1986 4 April 2012
By ken
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This has to be one of the best value CD packs around with no less that 4 stunning albulms on all remastered with bonus tracks along with with some rare "live stuff". This is by far UFO`s best work prior to the current set up, but if you are a true rock fan, or if you want to re discover UFO, this complimation is the best by far, the stunning Albulm, "misdemeanor" way too advanced for its time when originally released, mixed in with the Awesome "no place to run", simply tremendous buy, tell all your friends, this complimation you play over and over again and rediscover new things at every spin. Beilive me great selction of music from the world smost underated Band, as of now and time of writing, they are just finishing their UK tour, having toured to launch their new Albulm "seven deadly"

5.0 out of 5 stars A great band. 19 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The mighty UFO! what is not to like about this great box set. The albums are superb, the extras are a treat, and throughout it all, a lesson from the absolute masters, to todays pretenders, that this is indeed how it should be done!
