ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The archivists of UFO at the band’s original label got a superb idea and released the crème de la crème of the group’s early days in 10 essential tracks- all remastered of course- entitled, “All the Hits and More- the Early Years” (December 22, 2010).  Back in the day, the band featured Phil Mogg (vocals), Mick Bolton (guitars), Pete Way (bass), and Andy Parker (drums and percussion) and you get the must-own tunes any diehard fan or newbie should own.  IF you have yet to introduce yourself to this phenomenal band, folks, this is a wonderful way in which you and your ears can get into the groove.  Granted, at Amazon the CD sells for around $25-50 depending upon where you might look but what the f**k?  When it comes to rock music, only buy the best and friends, UFO is among the top 20 greatest British rock bands.
