There is not only in death metal or in thrash where we can find classic songs, on the contrary !
If we had asked to the elders to cite the best Live
songs ever, we would undoubtly have in answer “No sleep ‘til hammersmith” (Motorhead), “Unleashed
in the east” (Judas), «Live
after death» (maiden) and this «Strangers in the Night
» de UFO
. You must know that when this Live
was released, UFO
had already recorded 7 studio albums with plenty of classics. It is the most famous UFO
's line-up that gives us all these burning tracks as we can find on vocals Phil Mogg, on guitar Michael Schenker, Pete Way on bass...
we can say that every single song presented here are classics and most of them are still possesed by the band's Live
performance. The most hard rock songs like «Let It Roll», «Light’s out», «Rock Bottom
», «Too Hot to Handle» are all present to the detriment of slower songs we can find on the studio albums. These versions are just amazing, keyboard is still there to give this 70's color to the whole, the talent of each of the musicians has carved these hymns in the vynil forever. The highlight is obviously this fabulous «Doctor Doctor» and its intro which could make a deaf man cry !
album which represents perfectly the passage between two generations, the transition between the hard rock of the 70's and the metal of the 80's. Notice that the reedition by Capitol of this jewel contains two bonus tracks included the wonderful «Hot n' ready»
