I've identified this as one to purchase!

Advantages: Decent early UFO
Disadvantages: A bit pricier than some of the other UFO comps

I recently listened to one of UFO's most highly rated albums with Michael Schenker on guitar, the general concensus on Amazon was that it was far superior to the band's other work and as I didn't think a great deal to it, I almost gave up on the band alto ...
