From the debut “”UFO 1″” highlights are the band version of the Eddie Cochran number “”C’mon Everybody”” which sounds like proto-punk rock, their take on Ellas Mcdaniel R&B classic “”Who Do You Love”” with Parker providing some tribal drumming, the garage rocker “”Timothy””, their cover of the folk ballad “”Come Away Melinda”” and the favorite from the whole LP: the somewhat dark/gloomy sounding “”Treacle People”” with its lyrics apparently inspired by a bad LSD trip.

UFO 2 – Flying (sometimes simply UFO 2 or Flying; also subtitled One Hour Space Rock) is the second album by UFO released in 1971.
This album is distinctive for its title track, which is the longest song the band ever recorded. The track finishes with a backmasked reading from Rudyard Kipling Gunga Din: “”Tho’ I’ve belted you an’ flayed you, By the livin’ Gawd that made you, You’re a better man than I am, Gunga Din!”” and a slowed phrase “”Yes we know, it all been done before before before””.

All songs written by UFO, except where noted.

Side one
“”Silver Bird”” -“ 6:54
“”Star Storm”” -“ 18:54
“”Prince Kajuku“” -“ 3:56

Side two
“”The Coming Of Prince Kajuku“” -“ 3:43
“”Flying”” -“ 26:30

Personnel:
Mick Bolton – Guitar
Phil Mogg – Vocals
Andy Parker – Drums
Pete Way – Bass

In the early years the band focused on a mixture of R&B/psychedelic/space rock. guitarist Bolton played with a lot of emotion best heard in the 26-minute space rock masterpiece “”Flying””, a song where bass player Way shines as well! After hearing the 26-minute epic number, you might agree with me that, it is one of the best guitar pieces ever recorded! Simplicity is the charm in this case. Perfect proof that jam guitar rock can sound great without cramming tons of notes per measure with sweep arpeggios, two handed tapping, etc.
You can find the other long composition reaching the 18-minute mark “”Star Storm””; another showcase for Bolton psychedelic playing, the two part composition “”Coming Of Prince Kajuku/Prince Kajuku””, one being an early heavy rocker and the other is a three minute instrumental. “”Silver Bird”” has plenty of jamming in the middle with Bolton using the wah wah pedal for a few bars. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

In conclusion, this is the definitive compilation of the early UFO era, so if you are interested in checking them out this 2LP set will do! “
