You see, UFO is one of those bands that had, and still has, quite a lot of fans, and they were pretty popular in the 70's, but I fear sooner rather than later this fantastic band will start slipping peoples minds, and won't be remembered anymore. I feel it's my job -as a 27 year old guy who wasn't around in the 70's- to do my best sharing this wonderful band with as many people as possible.
Let's be honest- the lead singer has such an incredible voice I feel like crying when I hear it, and the guitarist is just as wonderful at what he does on the guitar. He goes the extra mile to create some truly spectacular solos.
With all that said, No Heavy Petting is perhaps one of the best examples of what "solid" means, in terms of hard rock masterpieces. Along with Wishbone Ash, Humble Pie, and Hawkwind, these are hard rock bands that should be remembered for years to come.
No Heavy Petting happens to contain a PERFECT selection of hard rock songs, and I couldn't argue with anyone who thinks it's the bands best album. It might just be. I love Phenomenon a little bit more, but No Heavy Petting is really just as incredible too. Please, remember UFO and keep these guys in your CD collection. We can't let these good ol' rockers disappear. Time goes on, but great music should stick around forever.
This is the same master used for the 2000 version. So, unless you're just dying to have the LP mini-sleeve for five times the price, don't knock yourself out.
WHAT IS A JAPAN "MINI-LP-SLEEVE" CD?
Have you ever lamented the loss of one of the 20th Century's great art forms, the 12" vinyl LP jacket? Then "mini-LP-sleeve" CD's may be for you.
Mini-sleeve CDs are manufactured in Japan under license. The disc is packaged inside a 135MM X 135MM cardboard precision-miniature replica of the original classic vinyl-LP album. Also, anything contained in the original LP, such as gatefolds, booklets, lyric sheets, posters, printed LP sleeves, stickers, embosses, special LP cover paper/inks/textures and/or die cuts, are precisely replicated and included. An English-language lyric sheet is always included, even if the original LP did not have printed lyrics.
Then, there's the sonic quality: Often (but not always), mini-sleeves have dedicated remastering (20-Bit, 24-Bit, DSD, K2/K2HD, and/or HDCD), and can often (but not always) be superior to the audio on the same title anywhere else in the world. There also may be bonus tracks unavailable elsewhere.
Each Japan mini-sleeve has an "obi" ("oh-bee"), a removable Japan-language promotional strip. The obi lists the Japan street date of that particular release, the catalog number, the mastering info, and often the original album's release date. Bonus tracks are only listed on the obi, maintaining the integrity of the original LP artwork. The obi's are collectable, and should not be discarded.Read more ›
