Live at Club Citta

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This CD, and the band itself, were largely ignored at this point in their career. You could make a good argument that this is really an early Mogg/Way live release, as they are the only "accepted" members in the band at this point. The die hard completists know that excusing this is a big mistake. Lawrence Archer plays lead guitar, very good but not in the same league of his predecessors. I would have loved to hear "Atomic"Tommy McClendon's take on these songs (Paul Chapman's replacement on the two prior releases. Chapman replaced Michael Schenker). They went back to familiar musical territory. Fortunately the album "Misdemeanor", an obvious sell out, was limited to that album alone. This tour was in support of "High Stakes and Dangerous Men". The band actually played & recorded several tracks from that release. Now, after one or two songs from whatever the current release is, the show is primarily "greatest hits" material. Because "High Stakes..." didn't see the support other releases had, this live set is an afterthought as well. That's too bad because this show rocks, just like "High Stakes..." did. It's one of the better albums in UFO's arsenal. Much of the band's best material was written without Michael Schenker, and all era's of the band are represented on this live offering . The tracks include the gazillionth recording of "Love to Love", "Lights Out" & "Doctor Doctor"...of course. Nine of the songs are very familiar tracks. When you add 5 from "High Stakes...", it makes this a must for all UFO fans."
The best live UFO album since "Strangers"

"This CD is from a show recorded 6/20/92 at Tokyo's Club Citta shortly after UFO finished work on the High Stakes and Dangerous Men album. The live versions of the five songs covered from that album absolutely destroy the studio versions. The band was HOT this night! The remaining tracks are classic UFO tunes from the Lights Out and Obsession period including killer versions of Cherry, Doctor Doctor and Lights Out. The real surprise here and the best kept secret of the rock guitar world is lead guitarist Lawrence Archer. His playing style maintains the melodic Schenker touch but adds the technical horsepower of Yngwie Malmsteen and Eddie VanHalen. The incredible version of Rock Bottom is alone worth the price of this CD and may be the best ever recorded by any incarnation of UFO. It's unfortunate that after turning in the performance of a lifetime, Lawrence parted ways with UFO and basically disappeared when he should have been a superstar guitarist (does anybody know where he went to?). Overall, the performance on this album gives Strangers in the Night a run for it's money and should be in every UFO collection."
