Scorpions - Reading 1979

Scorpions thirty years ago on the 1979 Reading Festival which included also Molly Hatchet, shared on Soundaboard too and many others like Motorhead, Gillan, Whitesnake, Peter Gabriel, Cheap Trick, etc.
Curiously they end up headlining the second night on a festival they weren't supposed to be. The Scorps were called to replace Thin Lizzy on the bill and proved on stage to be the right choice, so say some chronicles.

Sound Quality: 9

Source: FM Broadcast

Track List:

01 - Backstage Queen
02 - We'll Burn The Sky
03 - Loving You Sunday Morning
04 - Lovedrive
05 - Always Somewhere
06 - He's A Woman, She's A Man
07 - Another Piece Of Meat
08 - Robot Man

I was there. I'd never heard of them so it was a pleasant surprise. I think Uli Roth was long gone by then. I went out to buy 'Tokyo Tapes' the week after. Cheers.

Yes, Uli left the band before Tokyo Tapes (which I have it on my collection too) was released.
Of course he plays on it, since it was recorded in the Japan '78 tour, the last with Uli Roth.
