UFO released a somewhat costly retrospective anthology of sorts on January 21, 2012, “The Chrysalis Years 1973-1979.”  This effort contains every piece of music the band recorded between 1973 and 1979.  You get all the tunes collected together on several CDS.
Some sites are charging an arm and a leg (perhaps two legs) for this collection but if you have some money to spend- seeing as how everyone may have received their Joe Biden PORKULUS checks, you will have enough cash to purchase this glorious set and still have a couple of…
…hundred dollars left.  Seek it out now and see if it’s right for you- you will be glad you did.
