UFO 1 is the debut album by British rock band UFO. It was first released in the UK by Beacon Records in October 1970. The first US release was on Rare Earth Records in April 1971. Neither of these releases charted; however, the album did become a success in Germany and Japan. The album was reissued under the name Unidentified Flying Object with 4 of the 5 tracks from the band's second album. This reissue incorrectly shows a photo of the band from the 1980s on the cover.

Recorded on a shoestring budget, UFO has several challenging sonic moments. The uneven mixes and amateur performances that some listeners might find quaint or innocent could be distracting to others. In their pre-Michael Schenker days, the British band made a much more experimental noise that reflected psychedelic as well as R&B influences pitched with a dark resonance.

Fuckin A, UFO 1 & 2 (Flying) are absolutely amazing '70-"71 hard fucking rock right here. Little trippy, yet heavy, just blows my mind that it appears that nobody cares about these albums, because nobody talks about this shit. I became a fan of UFO in 1970 after I first heard this album. In 1970 I was also into Deep Purple and Uriah Heep and even Alice Cooper's Easy Action album. 3 weeks ago. Mick Bolton Jams, schenker was the man though.
