Scorpions - Grugahalle 1975

This is a less known phase in the career of this german band but a very interesting one. They gained much more recognition starting with the great Tokyo Tapes (live in 1978) and into the early eighties.
In 1975 they still had Uli Jon Roth on lead guitars, as on this show recorded after the In Trance release.
Unfortunately the sound of it suffers from some cuts and noises particularly on Fly to the Rainbow.

Sound Quality: 9

Source: Soundboard?

Track List:

01 - Instrumental Jam
02 - This is my Song
03 - They Need a Million
04 - Drifting Sun
05 - Red House
06 - Rock and Roll Queen
07 - Fly to the Rainbow
08 - Speedy's Coming
09 - Robot Man
10 - Instrumental jam II (cuts off)

The noises which you mention have been introduced to your CDR from a bad rip or damaged disc, and are not present on the actual recording. It might be better to flush this one to prevent it from circulating in this degraded form.

If someone has a better copy please send it.
Actually I downloaded it in this condition from a torrent tracker.

Although a shitty 128kbps mp3, this upload from guitars101 will show you what I mean about the digital flutter/noise on your version of 'Fly to the Rainbow'- the only track comparison that I made.


If only this version could be located in lossless...

Please note that I do not mean to be critical of you.
Thanks for the effort.
