Earthquake
Review by Greg Olma
When Uli Jon Roth left the Scorpions, that old excuse of "musical differences" did actually apply. While the Scorpions went on to write more commercial rock songs, Uli Jon Roth decided that he was not going to compromise his musical ambitions just to chase the dollar (or Deutsch Mark as in this case).

Under A Dark Sky
Review by Gary Hill
I have always preferred the Uli Jon Roth period of Scorpions music to the stuff they put out afterwards. For those who don’t remember, Roth supplied the guitar (and a lot of the songwriting) to the early period of that band.

Review by Larry Toering

After changing rhythm sections about a week prior to this show, it was nice to see Uli Jon Roth's original bass player in the line-up.

Review by Greg Olma

There are many people out there who do not realize that the Scorpions had a pretty successful career (albeit in Europe and Japan) prior to Lovedrive.

Jack Bruce - Silver Rails
Review by G. W. Hill

When you are Jack Bruce, it’s a safe bet you can get your pick of musicians who want to play with you. After all, when you were one third of one of the most influential bands of the 1960s (Cream), you have some clout. Bruce has used that clout to his advantage recruiting some impressive musicians to guest here. The end result is an album that’s exceptional. It might even make my best of 2014 list. There are moments here that call to mind Cream, but there are other sections that feels different than that. It’s all quite good, though.

As to those guests. Here’s a partial list of the musicians playing on the disc: Phil Manzanera, Uli Jon Roth, Robin Trower and Cindy Blackman Santana. There are quite a few others, too. The lineup is just one attraction, though. Really the music is the main driving force here, and it’s great.

Scorpions - Virgin Killer (vinyl)
Review by G. W. Hill

I have to say that, as much as I like the more popular later era of the Scorpions, I prefer the Uli Jon Roth stuff.
