5.0 out of 5 stars A Landmark Rock Album, 25 July 2008
This review is from: Obsession (Audio CD)
Another nice re-master of a truly landmark rock album. This was the final masterpiece of the classic line up of the seventies, never to be equalled until "Walk on Water" brought them back together. The mix again brings forward the trademark Schenker licks and bolsters the rhythm section to compliment the orchestral arrangements and top notch original production by Ron Nevison. The guitar work by Schenker soars even higher on "Ain't no Baby", still one of my favorite moments here along with classics like "Cherry", "Hot n Ready", "You Don't Fool Me", "Only You Can Rock Me", hell every track is just majestic.
Of course I had to own a copy but I wonder if Mr Schenker was consulted regarding the bonus material. Back in the day he was a stinker for perfection and probably wouldn't be happy with the guitars in the bonus live material here which is the weakest of all the re-releases to date. "Hot n Ready" , a live set opener is not the best vocally, in fact i've never heard a better version than the recorded one. The other tracks "Pack it up and Go" and "Ain't no Baby" are OK but they must have been scratching around to find something worthwhile to add. As a life long Schenker fan I have to admit you won't find a better version of "Pack it up and Go" than the live studio footage on the Showtime DVD with Vinnie Moore on guitar.
So buy this along with "Force It", "Phenomenon", "No Heavy Pettin", "Lights Out" and "Strangers in the Night" and you've got all the major UFO sitings of the 70's covered.

just wondering ?the live tracks on this version,who is on guitar ?
cos i recall schenker left on the eve of the tour promoting this album and paul chapman replaced him.
does it say who the guitarist is because if the tracks are from the promo tour then they cannot be schenker-i went to see many of the gigs for this tour and schenker was never there on guitar -he had well long gone !
