‘U.K.” is the self-titled debut album by the progressive rock supergroup U.K., released in 1978 through E.G. Records and Polydor Records.
It features John Wetton, Eddie Jobson, Bill Bruford, and Allan Holdsworth, all of whom came together to make a single album that stands as a monument to the cerebral music of the early 1970s.
The showcase four-part prog-rock opus, “In the Dead of Night” was a staple of album-oriented radio. “In the Dead of Night” and “Mental Medication” were both edited for single release.
In 2015 Rolling Stone magazine ranked “U.K.” as the 30th Best Progressive Rock Album of All Time.
