Win 'The Best of UFO 1974-1983' on CD ... NOW!
As the influential UK rock band UFO prepares to land in several U.S. cities this April and May, Capitol/EMI announces the April 15 release of The Best Of UFO (1974-1983), a new collection of the band’s top tracks from the Chrysalis and Ariola Records vaults. The 19-track CD and digital album is chronologically sequenced with hits and other standout album cuts, as well as 7” single edits.
Formed in London in 1969, UFO’s original hard rock style evolved into a more meandering space rock influenced sound before the band unleashed its signature heavy guitar rock structure in the mid ‘70s, a pioneering style that would inform popular music in decades to come, as the band’s international touring and album releases connected with a worldwide audience.
UFO has been cited as a major influence on the evolution of heavy metal in the 1980s by many of the genre’s top players, including members of Metallica, Megadeth, Iron Maiden and Tesla, among others.
So, if you would like to win one of these new CDs and you think you know all there is to know about the band, just answer this easy question: Part of UFO's early heavy metal work was strongly influenced by space rock (their second album, including a 26-minute long title track and a 19-minute long opus that even came with its own subtitle!
