SCORPIONS Lovedrive (1997) (RMST) 320 Kbps MP3 ALBUM

Lovedrive (1997) (RMST)
Scorpions

Album Description:

LOVEDRIVE is the sixth studio album by the German heavy metal band Scorpions, released in 1979. LOVEDRIVE was a major evolution of the band's sound, which exhibited a new Van Halen-style energy. Michael Schenker, younger brother of rhythm guitarist Rudolf Schenker, performed lead guitar on 3 songs. The RIAA certified Lovedrive as Gold on 28 May 1986 and the album ranked 25 on IGN's list of the top 25 metal albums.

The cover depicted a man and woman in formalwear seated in the back of a car, with one of the woman's breasts exposed and connected to the man's hand by stretched bubblegum. It was created by Storm Thorgerson of the design firm Hipgnosis. It caused some controversy upon the album's release and was subsequently banned, with later pressings of the album bearing a simple design of a blue scorpion on a black background. The album's artwork was named "Best album sleeve of 1979" by Playboy magazine. Recalling the cover photo with the girl and the car, Thorgerson remarked, "Not exactly the most politically correct scene you've ever seen. I thought it was funny, but women read a different inflection into it now."

Prior to LOVEDRIVE's recording, the Scorpions' lineup had a major change when their lead guitarist, Uli Jon Roth, quit the group (not to mention, the rock genre was rapidly changing). With this in mind, the band not only highlighted the album with the licks and riffs of three guitarists (Rudolf Schenker, Michael Schenker, Matthias Jabs), but they also dramatically changed their style to sound more like that of Van Halen. This change is quite welcome; not only are the performances more unpredictable, but the lyrics and melodies are better written. In fact, some of the Scorpions' most classic songs, such as "Loving You Sunday Morning," "Holiday," and "Coast to Coast" are found on LOVEDRIVE, which makes it one of their finest.

Scorpions: Klaus Meine (vocals); Rudolf Schenker (lead & rhythm guitar); Michael Schenker (lead & rhythm guitar); Matthias Jabs (lead & rhythm guitar); Francis Buchholz (bass guitar); Herman Rarebell (drums).

Recorded at Dierks Studios, Cologne, Germany between September & December 1978.
