Been listening to the Scorps for more than 30 years. Always liked them, but were never in my top bands, although they managed to write my favorite song of all time, We`ll burn the sky from Tokyo tapes. When I learnt they were coming out with an unplugged album I was curious to see how they would pull it off. Through the years we had some very interesting unplugged renditions by other bands and some not so great.
I only listened to it once so far, but it is very, very good. You can see the amount of work put it to re-arrange the songs and give them a new life. Very impressive. Klaus still has the same voice even after all these years and Mathias is so comfortable on the acoustic guitar, even soloing, he really does shine on this show. We`re also treated to some new songs which are very decent.
This album comes at a great time for them and it might just be the spark they needed / wanted to delay the retirement plans a little more. Great purchase, great sound on vinyl, well worth the buy.
