I have been banging on about this album so time for a review :grinthumb

Would you please welcome from ENGLAND UFO

and off we go Natural thing riffs start us off and then the drum roll into song

as soon as you hear the first song you just know this is something special

Out in the street follows and kicks straight in

does it then die down a bit .. ohh no Only you can rock me with schenker warming up straight into the classic ( overplayed or not ) Doctor Doctor
live version again by far the best

Mother Mary has a very powerfull presence and makes you hungry for more

This kids and love to love sound every bit as good as the studio version and you begin to wander then wow this is a great album

Will they run out of steam... not a chance

bring on Lights Out and Rock Bottom ( is there a finer 2 songs for one side of an album ) Lights out in Chicago ( any chicago guys here who were there ?)

the solo on rock bottom has to be heard to be believed schenker at his best

Too hot to handle for me very underated song and one of my favs

i'm a loser slows it down for a little while:grinthumb

before the cracking ending of let it roll and shoot shoot

is it the greatest live album ever well its up there..for me yes and i bet most people would mention it in the top 5 or 6

Re: UFO Strangers in the Night

Great Live album. This was the second UFO album I ever heard. Still remains in my regular rotation of albums by the band.

Re: UFO Strangers in the Night

I love this album, I have it on vinyl and would love to get it on CD, Doctor Doctor live is the best version that they do. so different than the early UFO.

Re: UFO Strangers in the Night

Easily my favorite UFO record.:bow:

And one of the top 5 live rock albums ever released.

Have the CD but even better I have a new audiophile vinyl gatefold album now.:tup:

Re: UFO Strangers in the Night

Toss me in as a fan of this album. I also find it to be my favourite UFO album, a little behind Obsession. I also feel it's one of the BEST live albums of all time, hands down.

Very enjoyable and smooth all the way through. I will never get bored of this album, never.

:woot:
