UFO 2: Flying


UFO 2: Flying (sometimes simply UFO 2 or Flying; also subtitled One Hour Space Rock) is the second album by UFO released in 1971 (see 1971 in music) on the Beacon label; it was issued on CD in 1999 on Repertoire Records.

This album is distinctive for its title track, which is the longest song the band ever recorded. The track finishes with a backmaskedreading from Rudyard Kipling's Gunga Din"Tho' I've belted you an' flayed you, By the livin' God that made you, You're a better man than I am, Gunga Din!" and a slowed phrase "Yes we know, it's all been done before before before".

The album was reissued on the Flying, The Early Years compilation, along with all of the band's other pre-Schenker work.
