This release includes two of UFO's best from this period, 1981's The Wild, the Willing and the Innocent and 1982's similar-sounding Mechanix. At its best, the Chapman-led UFO evoked the best of Thin Lizzy's sound; at its worst, the group sounded like a generic amalgamation of Rainbow and Journey.
Great CD! Huge UFO fan here and have all their stuff. Mechanix is a great CD and W,W,I is also great stuff. One of my all time fav UFO songs is 'Feel It' (Mechanix) which you never hear about. Great idea for a double CD. A must for UFO fans!!
Chapman remained in UFO until 1983 and played on another three albums: The Wild, the Willing and the Innocent (1981), Mechanix (1982), and Making Contact. In 1983, after numerous line-up changes, UFO decided to call it a day and undertook a farewell tour (although they reformed in 1985).
