UFO – The Chrysalis Years Vol. 2

Mar 20th, 2012

Artist: UFO
Title/Medium: The Chrysalis Years Vol. 2 (1980-1986)
Release Date: 30.03.2012
Label: EMI



“The Chrysalis Years (1980-1986)” collects together all six of the “post-Schenker” albums UFO recorded for Chrysalis in the 1980s. This anthology kicks off with 1980’s “No Place To Run”, now featuring the single edit ‘Young Blood’, available on CD for the first time, as well as its live b-side ‘Hot ‘N’ Ready’. Next up is a BBC gig recorded for Radio 1 on their 1980 “No Place To Run” UK tour. This is the first time the original broadcast has been released on CD in its entirety

As UFO have now been touring and recording in excess of 40 years and 20 albums, announcing their “farewell” tour in 1983 may have been a little premature, but to commemorate this, a number of concerts were recorded on that tour, resulting in the 5 tracks taped at London’s famed Hammersmith Odeon, and released on “Headstone”. The “comeback” record, and their final LP for Chrysalis, “Misdemeanor” was released in 1986, and now features the non-album b-side ‘The Chase’, as well as US Remix versions of ‘Night Run’, ‘Heavens Gate’ and ‘One Heart’. The package is completed with liner notes written in conjunction with singer, songwriter and UFO mainstay Phil Mogg, conducted whilst the band recorded their very latest album, which is due for release later in 2012.
