MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP – Rock Will Never Die +6 [Japan Great Rock 1500 series remastered]

We have featured here all early MSG / MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP albums in remastered form, and one you can’t miss is this “Rock Will Never Die“, in this remastered reissue adding the additional 6 tracks captured at Hammersmith Odeon in London, over two nights in October 1983. Due to physical space limitation, the original LP only included 9 tracks, now the CD reissue packs the complete show.
The final track “Doctor Doctor”, which Schenker originally recorded with UFO, features a guest appearance by Klaus Meine and Rudolf Schenker of Scorpions.
The concert was also released in VHS, and I remember playing the tape to death. Schenker and the band – including vocalist Gary Barden, his last album recorded with MSG before he rejoined in 2008 – was really hot, plus production (Jack Douglas) and recording quality are excellent.
