British rock legends UFO offer up their first ever covers album paying homage to a dozen of their personal favorites. The Salentino Cuts includes several unexpected choices such as MAD SEASONS' “River Of Deceit”, JOHN MELLENCAMP's “Paper In Fire”, and BILL WITHERS' “Ain't No Sunshine” alongside more traditional but nonetheless thrilling versions such as THE YARDBIRDS' “Heartful Of Soul”, ZZ TOP's “Just Got Paid” and lots more.

UFO's current lineup features original members Phil Mogg on vocals and Andy Parker on drums. Keyboardist/guitarist Paul Raymond joined the band in 1976. Lead guitarist Vinnie Moore has been a permanent member of the group since 2003, and American bassist Rob De Luca joined the fold in 2012.

Vinnie says, “Making this covers record was a blast for me. I thoroughly enjoyed putting a little of my own spin on these tunes that I grew up with. I played ZZ TOP and ROBIN TROWER songs about a gazzilion times onstage over the years. it was great to actually get to record some of my old faves.”
