Love To Love
by UFO

Album: Lights Out (1977)

Songfacts®:

  • In his autobiography, A Fast Ride Out Of Here: Confessions Of Rock's Most Dangerous Man, which he co-wrote with Paul Reese, Pete Way says Ron Nevison, who produced the Lights Out album, was credited as Ronnie Fury on account of his attitude in the studio. It was recorded at Air Studios in Central London, and when they turned up to record "Love To Love," they found he had brought in a string section. Pete was unimpressed: "I told Ron it sounded f--king awful, like Des O'Connor."

    He changed his mind after hearing the finished product. The final track, it runs to 7 minutes 38 seconds, and is a Phil Mogg/Michael Schenker composition.
  • In 2005 this was re-recorded "live" in the studio with Jason Bonham on drums and Vinnie Moore on lead guitar along with Mogg, Way, and Paul Raymond, all of whom played on the original. >>
