Live In Texas 1979 is a live album of UFO after Michael Schenker was replaced by Paul Chapman recorded on 21st March 1979.
Chapman had previously been the second guitarist in UFO in 1974 to promote the Phenomenon album. He left in early 1975 to form Lone Star (another group I liked and saw live). He filled in for Michael Schenker during an absence in 1977.

Casual fans have no need for this but if you’re really interested in UFO, it does give you the chance to see how Paul Chapman compares to the great Michael Schenker.
I haven’t heard this album but I’ve read that the recording quality is OK but not pristine so if you’re happy with bootlegs, this will be OK but if you naturally prefer studio albums, again you should skip this one.
