It was recorded over six shows during the band’s 1978 US tour and released as a double album the following year, with the new version set to arrive on November 20 through Chrysalis as an 8CD box set and on double vinyl.
Not only will the box set contain the original album, but all six shows from Chicago, Kenosha, Youngstown, Cleveland, Columbus and Louisville will also be included in the box set for the very first time.
They’ve been remixed by Richard Whittaker and remastered by Andy Pearce from the original tapes, with the standalone 2LP version covering the Youngstown concert coming out on October 24 to mark this year’s third Record Store Day drop.
Along with the music, the package will include new sleeve notes by Michael Hann and new interviews with Phil Mogg, Andy Parker and Michael Schenker.
Vocalist Mogg says: “We had the right combination and we were having a wild time. We seemed to score in the oddest places, Chicago was great for us, wonderful. San Francisco, which is the opposite kind of place, was great for us.
“They were two totally different cities. It was fun – we leaned heavily on that word. We had a great time.”
Drummer Parker adds: “It feels like our defining record and it always will do. We were at our peak and never quite achieved that status again. We were at the apex of our career, and it just exemplifies the band. It will always be my favourite.”
The UFO lineup for Strangers In The Night featured Mogg, Parker and Schenker along with the late Pete Way and Paul Raymond.
