Chrysalis Records continue their reissue program of the UFO catalogue with 2LP vinyl and 2CD expanded editions of Force It. Originally released in 1975, Force It was UFO’s fourth studio album and like 1974’s ‘Phenomenon’, this was produced by Ten Years After’s Leo Lyons.
It was also their first album to chart in the US and contains many classic tracks still in their live set today, such as ‘Shoot Shoot’ and ‘Let It Roll’.
For the new deluxe editions, the album was remastered in 2020 by Andy Pearce, from the original production master tapes. Bonus material comes in the way of the studio outtake “A Million Miles” and the live set recorded at the Record Plant, Los Angeles in 1975, which is previously unavailable on vinyl.
The vinyl edition is a gatefold while the deluxe CD is a six-panel digipak. Both contain new sleeve notes written by Malcolm Dome.
A special limited edition ‘indies-only’ 2LP CLEAR vinyl pressing is being made available and this special edition can be ordered via the SDE shop, using this link or the button below.
Force It will be released on 10 September 2021 (was 9 July 2021).
