3.0 out of 5 stars great ufo record for 2009, 1 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Visitor [VINYL] (Vinyl)
great ufo lp for 2009 but i think phil and co like many other classic artists from the 70s are running on empty a bit when it comes to new materiel, they just dont have the great writing skills they had in the 70s and 80s, still this is a great effort with 4 great sing along songs you wont get out of your head unlike ufo albums of the 70s and 80s where every song was a killer, i cant belive this record came out one year ago already, it is a must for the ufo completest but not for the casual fan, however this is a bit better then monkey puzzle was back in 06.............

4.0 out of 5 stars great long overdue classic finally on dvd, 1 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
great long overdue classic finally on dvd in great quality shots, much better then the bootleg vhs tape i had of this show for the past 25 years, you get a lot of chapman era stuff on here as excpected becouse this was filmed about 2 months before the wild willing and innocent lp came out in january 1981. classic tonka show with a few of your schenker standards in there, if you are a diehard ufo fan or a fan of early 80s ufo then this dvd is a must own, my only complaint is i know they cut one song off this becouse the audio was not the best on it but regardless i would rather have a full performance then a song cut off becouse of poor audio quality. outside of that, THIS IS AN AMAZING SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars one of saxons best albums, 28 Aug. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Denim and Leather (Audio CD)
wow its hard to belive it was 28 years ago already when this classic was released, i think by this period in 1981 saxon where at there prime and they where one of the best metal bands in the world at this point, saxon was right up there with maiden, priest and motorhead, the bonus tracks on here are fantastic as well, i am just now waiting for the last 3 saxon albums from the 80s to come out with bonus tracks and get this treatment, we are still missing innocence ( 85), rock the nations (86) and destiny (88) i know they where not some of saxons most popular albums but ive been a major saxon fan since 81 now and i have every album they ever put out and there is always something special on each one, saxon is my favorite british metal band!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

fantastic box set of some of michaels best shows from michaels prime era with msg, i always felt 80 to 84 was msgs best peroid, like the ufo box set these shows all have fantastic mastering and unlike the ufo boot box this one has a bonus dvd of the classic 83 london show so this box is a must for any real schenker fan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars great to have most of this show on cd, 28 Aug. 2009

This review is from: Headstone (Audio CD)
its great after all these years to finally have this release done in the proper fashion but sadley this is still not the whole show, we are still missing 6 tracks from the original hammersmith 83 show, it is great to have blinded by a lie, the amazing 10 minute version of mystery train on here and also i think on here lonely heart is one of the best live versions ive ever heard, this live disc is a must for any chapman era ufo fan, i just wish this cd set came with the complete show, this only came out once on cd back in 1991 in japan but it was the same track listing as the original 83 viynl lp so this is a much better version then that one, like i said i would give this 5 stars hands down but it is not the whole show!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars great box set, 28 Aug. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
great killer box set of the best mastering of all these shows that have been on the bootleg circut for years now, all these recordings are soundboard and sound fantastic!!!!!!!!!!! the best part is you get a mix of the best of the schenker era in the 70s and the tonka era in the early 80s, all these shows are perfect for the ufo completest!!!!!!!! this also comes with a great booklet with a lot of photos and information........

5.0 out of 5 stars great classic, 13 Jun. 2009

This review is from: Message to the World (Audio CD)
great classic by jesse hector, i loved the whole pub rock scene in the uk going on in the mid to late 70s, we saw eddie and the hot rods, dr feelgood and the pirates get back together during this period. jesse pulled a real good one of with this record and it has a bit of a raw punk edge to it considering this was recorded in late 77 and early 78................

This review is from: Power & The Glory (Audio CD)
wow really nice remastered edition with great liner notes and great bonus tracks, i cant belive its been almost 27 years since this classic album first came out. this may have been saxons last incredible album of the 80s but the follow up in 1984 crusader was just about as good i think, after 84 saxon where going for more of a us radio friendly sound wich did not do them all that well till solid ball or rock in 1991...........

4.0 out of 5 stars great autobigraphy, 13 Jun. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this is a great autobigraphy by biff byford from saxon, this deals a lot with his childhood, his life both before and during saxon so just so you know in advance this book is not a book about saxon its about mr byford, i actually really enjoyed it and found it to be an interesting read. now i am waiting for the book and bio on saxon and there 30 years of making albums and touring!!!!!!!!!!!!!

decent song by the legendary saxon in 2007, the album this is from (inner sanctum) is a very good saxon record but this song is not my favorite, i just bought the single for my HUGE saxon collection...............
