4.0 out of 5 stars The beginning of the end. . . January 12, 2000
Format:Audio CD
On tour with Blue Oyster Cult at the time, UFO is captured brilliantly in $"Strangers in the Night" arguably one of the best hard rock live albums ever put to disk (compact or otherwise). The band is captured as they lock and jell their way through their set, alternately stomping on the accelerator and slowing thoughfully as the band works their superlative material for everything it is worth.
Now the album has been re-issued and remastered, with two new songs not present on the album's original release. These songs, "Hot 'n Ready" and "Cherry" now open the album, with some changes in the song order that, it is stated in the liner notes, more accurately depicts the set list of that era.
The frightening thing about this album is it's a snapshot of UFO at the height of their powers. Scary because despite the authority with which the band played live, and their apparently effortless ability to write catchy melodic rock tunes, the band lost Schenker just a few months after this was recorded. Neither Schenker, Mogg/Way, or Paul Raymond ever recaptured individually the power they held collectively for this all too short period in time.
Which brings up the next point. It has been said the Michael Schenker, who had fled UFO's camp before the master tapes were even parked in the studio, refused to cooperate with any re dubs for the live album. If this is true, then this album is truly the Rosetta Stone of live hard rock lead guitar. Schenker's playing, at once melodic, fierce, soaring, and explosive in it's intensity, is the best representation of everything artistically correct with hard rock of this period.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate UFO August 23, 2008
Format:Audio CD
After 5 stellar studio albums, in 1979 UFO (Phil Moog, Michael Schenker, Andy Parker, Pete Way, Paul Raymond) released the live record Strangers In The Night. It went on to become highly acclaimed and a favorite among many musicians. However still criminally underlooked. What makes this different from the studio albums? UFO seemingly, after hearing the bonus live cuts on their new 2008 remastered editions come off as a cool live band but their performances are raw and in a way lack spark. This album however, track for track, second for second captures a spirit of rock and roll rarely heard on a live release. Re-relesed in 1999 with two bonus cuts and an altered track listing that more accuratly fit UFO's set list of the time, the sound is superb as is the 2008 as well. Apparenly the inbetween song banter and chat from Phil Moog and Pete Way was not on the original record however I think it adds a better live feel. With that in mind there are also no drop out or fades which is the case with about 98% of every live album you'll likely to hear. The show is one long concert with the exception of the two bonus cuts Hot N Ready and Cherry which were recorded at two seperate venues and tacked on at the beginning. Normally this wouldnt be very acceptable but the record isnt disrupted at all by it and if historical significance prevails that UFO did open their 78/79 tour with these tracks then let it be so here. As for the songs...guitarist Michael Schenker has complained there could've been a better song list. And while it's very very hard to see anything wrong with this albums tracklisting which is just about the best of UFO you can get. True there were some lost nuggets on those early albums but the major highlights will always be picked when it comes to this sort of thing. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars six stars if possible October 8, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
the original strangers in the night is my all time favorite rock album. it is the sound track for my teenage years. not only does it bring back memories of those days of old but i've never stopped listening to it so it's still as fresh today as it was back then. to me ufo is the greatest live band ever.none of their studio recordings ever quite captured the essence of what they truly are. this recording does. i can't recall ever playing this for anyone that wasn't captivated by it. songs like "love to love", "rock bottom", "i'm a loser" , just have to be heard to be believed. there is not a bad note to be found here. now with the extra tracks and different order of the songs this perfect album just gains another dimension of greatnessi would suggest everyone in the world have a copy of this album...even rap and country fans, just so you know what you're missing!

5.0 out of 5 stars The culmination of UFO's hard won success... December 5, 2006
Format:Audio CD
UFO typified the best elements of hard rock, but often came across as generic and derivative. To some extent that might have been true, but they were a prolific, hard working band, their songs were good, and they played them like they meant it. Strangers in the Night brings the best of it to the stage. A lengthy album, remastered and extended to include two additional songs, this CD reminds UFO fans why they were fans to begin with. It's a relentlessly energetic concert that surrounds the listener with the excitement of both the band and the audience. Clearly UFO played with such singular conviction because they had no other choice. As well as a great live performance, Strangers in the Night also serves as a fine "best of" CD. If you're just getting acquainted with UFO, there's no better album to start with.
