4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars - underrated Scorpions masterpiece March 29 2004
Format:Audio CD
Fly To The Rainbow (1974.) Scorpions' second album, and the first to feature Uli Roth on guitar.
It's hard to believe that by the time the Scorpions released their SECOND album, they had already been together for NINE YEARS! What's even more astonishing is that Fly To The Rainbow, the band's second album, came a full TEN YEARS before their biggest hit, Rock You Like A Hurricane! The average Scorpions fan is left dazed and confused after hearing the band's 1972 debut, Lonesome Crow, since it sounds NOTHING like the later band. Does the band's sophomore effort do the same thing, or is it a step toward the material we know and love the band for? Read on for my review.
The band kicks things off with a classic hard power rocker entitled Speedy's Coming. Of all the tracks on the album, this is probably the one that sounds the most like the band's eighties material that most fans know and love. The highly irregular rocker They Need A Million comes next. For this track, the band takes on somewhat of a Spanish sound. As weird as this may sound, it makes for a pretty interesting track. Drifting Sun, Fly People Fly, and the title track are all interesting little power ballads that almost certainly won't fail to please. It's such a shame the band's albums with guitarist Uli Roth are long out of print and underappreciated by the average Scorpions fan, different as they may be from the rest of the band's material.
Overall, Fly To The Rainbow is an excellent album. Unfortunately, it and all of the other albums from the band's period with guitarist Uli Roth are long out of print, so if you want to find this underrated masterpiece, I recommend eBay or your local used compact disc dealer. Don't overlook the Scorpions pre-eighties material - it could end up being the biggest mistake of your life!

5.0 out of 5 stars Buried Treasure! Sept. 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
Well .. fans who fell in love with the Scorpions when "Love at First Sting" was released need to do a little digging and purchase some of their older stuff. This is the Scorpion's second album and it shows that these guys have "had it" from the beginning!
It took a while for the CD to get to me (no longer in distribution in the USA), but it was well worth the wait. The opening number "Speedy Is Coming" is a good old fashioned rock song -- a great way to open the CD!
The other tunes do not disappoint either. "They Need a Million" is a great 2-part song and the vocals (performed by Rudy) are excellent. Great guitar harmonies and solid performances by the other band members.
I have most of the Scorpions CD's and I love all of their styles. I find it refreshing that one band can deliver songs that reach so many audiences. This CD shows the early Scorpions starting out on this path of creativity and it is awesome to hear how well they "gelled" from the start.
A strong "thumbs up" to anybody who likes good Rock n' Roll!

5.0 out of 5 stars Psychedelic Hard Rock Gem! April 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is the Scorps 2nd album, for years this was part of USA RCA's budget albums, but oddly, has been outof print for some time now in the USA.
Fly to the Rainbow plays a pivotal role in the Scorps career. As Lonesome crow was more Psych-Blues, Fly to the Rainbow is more Psych-Hard Rock.
They also revamped the lineup for this one, Michael Schenker is gone, as we all know, he left to join UFO. Uli Roth is the NEW lead guitarist, who obviously brings a lot to the table. This is also Francis Bucholtz's 1st albumwith the Scorps, a big time under-rated bass player who plays off the wild lead guitar playing quite nicely. Listen to "This is My Song", for some nice melodic bass playing. The drums are handled by Jurgen Rosenthal, one of the better drummers in a long line of Scorps percussionists.
Speedy's Coming: This type of tune is what would become a typical Scorps Hard Rockin song. But this is the prototype, the 1st one. Funny how this song seems out of place on this album. Lotsof cool references to Alice Cooper, Ringo Starr, Royal Albert Hall. Very cool lyriclly, with all the stuff about the girl hanging posters on her wall and getting hot and bothered by the rock star coming to town.
They Need a Million: This is the 1st in the Rainbow concept, which seems to have something to do with the poor and oppresed finding a better life, probably an East/West German thing. Starts with a nice Acoustic piece played by Rudy, then goes into the Flamenco thing. Th lead vocalshere are hadled by Rudy Schenker, NOT Uli Roth, as many may think, mainly because rudy never sings again after this album. Strng backrounds by Klaus.
Drifting Sun: Uli's time to shine. Blistering lead guitar, and pounding, heavy bcking track make this one a winner.

Speedys Comming....Compare what others were doing in the 70's and hands down, no one can touch Uli.

This album is creatively better than any of their other pre-Lovedrive stuff, but it needs to be remastered in at least 20 bit form. Read more
