Mastered from the Original Chrysalis Records Tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and at Capitol Records with Ron McMaster
UFO has been a perennial classic hard rock band for many years in the music business. Helmed by their powerful lead vocalist Phil Mogg and a bevy of superstar players like Michael Schenker on guitar (Scorpions), keyboardist Paul Raymond (Savoy Brown), drummer Andy Parker and Pete Way on bass (Fastaway, Waysted), their albums have become international treasures and their concerts are of legendary proportion. After several world tours and a brilliant series of albums on Chrysalis Records throughout the seventies, UFO hit the arena rock big time with their mega hit album Lights Out.
Produced by the multi-talented Ron Nevison (Jefferson Starship/Kiss), Lights Out contained eight stellar tracks which have truly become benchmark UFO classics. From the opening guitar and drum riff of the smash single "Too Hot To Handle," you will soon know that you are in for one amazing hard rock extravaganza.
The quintet roars on with more UFO standards like the energy fused follow-up single "Gettin’ Ready," the hard rock drenched "Electric Phase" and of course the anthemic title track "Lights Out." This watershed album even contained a brilliant interpretation of Love’s "Alone Again Or," as well as the power balladry of the epic "Love To Love."
In an effort to continually offer consummate music lovers with the greatest rock recordings of all time, Friday Music proudly presents for the first time ever on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl in North America, UFO’s classic masterpiece Lights Out.
