Chrysalis Records: Doctor Doctor

Formed in England in 1969 under the name Hocus Pocus, UFO took its new name several months later in honor of the London club where they were discovered. In 1974, the band signed to Chrysalis Records and released their fourth LP “Phenomenon.” 

Our final look at Chrysalis Records is UFO’s first American single. While, “Doctor Doctor” failed to chart both in the UK and the US the first time it was released as a single, the band later released a live version of the same song in 1979. This second time around, it peaked in the UK at #35, but again, it failed to chart in the US.

It is the original studio version that I am using for our final look at Chrysalis Records.  By the way, former Ten Years After bassist Leo Lyons produced this cut.
