Rare Scorps!

Some folks been asking if I had this rare Scorpions recording with them doing a couple of Sweet covers in German and some of their early originals, so here it is. I have no idea what year this was recorded or what not. I don't have any artwork so I decided to post this picture that Brandi took of Uli Roth blowing my fucking mind at Annie's Social Club in San Francisco last year.

Freaky. Just today I finally bothered to track down the two Electric Sun albums I didn't have. Probably my favorite guitarist.
