This year marks the 35th Anniversary of the legendary 'Tokyo Tapes'. Recorded on 24 & 27th April 1978, released in late 1978 in Europe. Ever since it has become a true landmark of live Heavy Metal albums. Considered by many as THE greatest live metal album of all times.
For ages there's been rumours about Pro-shot footage on Herman Rarebell vaults.
It was released back in the day on 2 LP, and in Japan it was specially packaged with an amazing insert that can be viewed here:
Also, this year marks the 30th Anniversary of the US Festival 1983. On 29th May Scorpions stole the show and became legends in the USA.
I'd love the band to open their vaults at last !!! it would be GREAT to have those footages at last, and also the missing songs of Tokyo Tapes like 'Catch Your Train', 'Hell cat', that jam, etc. A remix (NOT BRICKWALLED and OVER EQ'D PLEASE) would be wonderful.
Please Scorpions, do something with 'Tokyo Tapes 35th anniversary' and 'US Festival 1983, 30th anniversary' this year !!!!
