The Wild, The Willing And The Innocent
Mechanix
No Place To Run
Making Contact
Ain't Misbehavin'


The Wild, The Willing And The Innocent [1981] is a total classic and, has been said elsewhere on this thread, stands shoulder to shoulder with the other classics from the 70's. You must own this album, I cannot praise it strongly enough. My only gripe is that it's not long enough. Profession Of Violence is a superb ballad and Tonka's guitar work throughout the entire album is outstanding.

Mechanix [1982] is a decent album. Take out the horrific cover of 'Somethin' Else' and you have an album that stands up pretty well without being a classic. It's better than No Place To Run.

No Place To Run [1980] is, for me, patchy. There are fans that rate it highly, but I just cannot get into the album as a whole. The 'Mystery Train' cover is an absolute belter, though. Paul Chapman goes wild.

With Making Contact and Ain't Misbehavin' the wheels had finally come off. Both albums are poor and, unless you're a completist, I'd avoid them altogether.

'Obsession' is a late 70's album, but you ought to get that. It's the last with Michael Schenker and is pretty strong. The thing with UFO's 70's output is that it is of it's time. The great songs stand out, but the others just don't.

Strangers In The Night really brings the songs to life, and is an absolute must have.
