MrBigShow likes this. I always liked the Japanese pressings, but the extra packaging, original cover art, etc. I'd be happy to give them a listen and let you know for sure. If you could that would be great, no rush though.
And you don't really have to listen to the whole cd's of each, just a couple of songs off each should do. Location: North of Cottage Country.
I would be interested to hear opinions on the sound versus the original USA pressings. All these years later I decided to check it out again as I was feeling nostalgic.
It came in the mail and I couldn't wait to get it home and play it. Some albums I've revisited with have sounded dated and out of place and are better served as fun memories of the past, not so with this CD. It still maintains it's integrity and the sounds are as fresh as the day they were originally released. Then again UFO was very melodic and intelligent metal in the day and still is as far as I'm concerned. The really cool thing now days is the bonus tracks that are added, and they only make this album shine that much more.
Since two of the bonus tracks were recorded in Columbus, Ohio, I must come to the conclusion that the whole show was recorded If it weren't for Shenker I would not be the guitar player that I am today! Let it roll was what I heard first then I was hooked on Shenker!! You gotta love his picking technique besides his in your face tone and the solo's were different every time! Obsession is almost too good to be true.
I bought the remastered Japanese import from Amazon and I'm listening to it today for the first time. I'm blown away. Not only is the production and digital remastering incredible, but the song selection is as mesmerizing and magical as you'll find anywhere. This is, without a doubt, one of the finest hard rock albums ever recorded! Virtually this entire CD could be called a "greatest hits" package! Originally released in , and featuring one of the most recognizable and bizarre Hipgnosis covers of all time, Obsession was arguably UFO's high-water mark.
Guitarist Michael Schenker bailed after Obsession and second bannana guitarist Paul Raymond filled in for No Place to Run , which was the beginning of the end of the classic UFO line-up and sound. Obsession is a feast for the ears, with lots of blistering, squeaking guitar, classic Phil Mogg vocals, crisp drumming from Andy Parker, solid songwriting and bass playing from Pete Way and some great contributions from Paul Raymond. Although this is undoubtedly a total band effort, it's probably Michael Schenker that shines brightest on Obsession -- which is something I hate to admit given his surly personality and widely reported dismal treatment of his band mates.
Obsession is UFO at their absolute best. No fan of melodic hard rock should be without this album. I can't believe I was without it for nearly 25 years! Obsession will rock you from start to finish. That is one thing that makes an album a classic, the other is truely great songs. Every song on this album is great. It starts out with a bang with"Only you can rock me" and goes right into another rocker in "Pack it up and go".
My favorites are "Looking out for No. The extra tracks are live versions of "Pack it up and go", "Ain't no baby, and "Hot and ready".
UFO is with out a doubt the most under appreciated rock band of all time, they did not receive air time on radio in the USA so many people were unaware of them. Their seventies albums were all classics in my books. Phil Mogg is a great singer and frontman, Michael Schenker is one of the greatest quitarist of all time. Check this one out and you will see. UFO will truely "Rock You". One person found this helpful. Great UFO recording.
