|Scorpions Blackout Limited Vinyl LP + CD
Blackout is the eighth studio album by German rock band Scorpions, released in 1982.
The CD/DVD and the Vinyl packages, originally released to celebrate the 50th Anniversary, will now be distributed by ADA. We will also be introducing a stripped down 1CD standard version.
The high quality Digipak not only contains the remastered original album tracks, but also five exciting bonus tracks. Among them is a rather intriguing demo version of "Blackout". The other four are "Sugar Man", "All My Love", "Searching For The Rainbow" and "Running For The Plane".
The DVD comprises of the legendary performance of the Scorpions in Dortmund's Westfalenhalle on 17 December 1983. Back then, German broadcaster ZDF aired the concert live as part of their 'Rock Pop in Concert' series. The DVD also includes an exclusive forty minutes interview in which the musicians talk about the recording of Blackout and the events which at times threatened the entire project. Last but not least, video clips of "No One Like You" and "Arizona" complete the DVD. An extensive 16 page booklet rounds the package off. It features liner notes written by Edgar Klüsener, a former editor of Germany's Metal Hammer, as well as rare photos and single covers, images of backstage passes and tour posters.
The LP comes in an original replica version with the CD in paper sleeve incl. all demo tracks.
