UFO

The Salentino Cuts

Classic Rock - - The Hard Stuff Albums - Ge­off Bar­ton

Off-cuts.

This is an odd one. UFO have recorded cover ver­sions in the past (Ed­die Cochran’s C’mon Ev­ery­body and Love’s Alone Again Or spring to mind), but a whole al­bum’s worth of them will likely test the pa­tience of even the most fer­vent UFO fan.

The song choices are in­trigu­ing – The Doors’ Break On Through and Mon­trose’s Rock Candy are the pick of an eclec­tic bunch but the ex­e­cu­tion all too of­ten is not; bizarrely, singer Phil Mogg’s vo­cals are so up-front in the mix as to be mildly off-putting. The one bright spot is that It’s My Life is the song recorded by The An­i­mals, not a dif­fer­ent one by Bon Jovi. (UFO play Bon Jovi? Puh-lease!) So if you find an uniden­ti­fied fly­ing ob­ject head­ing your way, you bet­ter duck. It could well be a copy of this CD.
