Schenker vs. Chapman

An interesting little number which compares the live performances of Michael Schenker and Paul Chapman playing the same songs. Notable are its inclusion of some rather obscure recordings, which is nice! Can get a little monotonous though, but a nice idea to try and compare the two.. although it's probably best to realise that both have very different styles.
  1. Too Hot To Handle (BBC Maisa Vale session, 77)
  2. Too Hot To Handle (Chicago Amphitheater, 81)
  3. Doctor Doctor (Germany, 74)
  4. Doctor Doctor (Birmingham Odeon, 81)
  5. Cherry (Randhurst Mall, Il., 78)
  6. Cherry (Birmingham Odeon, 81)
  7. Only You Can Rock Me (Randhurst Mall, 78)
  8. Only You Can Rock Me (Hammersmith Odeon, London, 83)
  9. Lights Out (Nuremburg, Germany, 93)
  10. Lights Out (Chicago Amphitheater, 81)
  11. Let It Roll (Fagans, Fishmongers Arms, London, 75)

  13. Shoot Shoot (Cleveland, 95)
  14. Shoot Shoot (Birmingham Odeon, 81)

MSG - Welcome Back Gary

Released through 'Vipera' in Canada this is a boot from the 98 G3 tour of MSG, Uli Jon Roth and Joe Satriani and is recorded at Stahlwerk, Dusseldorf, Germany May 27th 1998. Notable is the fact that they claim it is all properly copyrighted, and they nicked the G3 photos that I took and put on my site for the insert! Bastards! (Title comes from the fact that Gary Barden made a guest appearance most of the shows * below.)

In Search Of My Peace Of Mind / Assault Attack / Another Piece Of Meat / Into The Arena / Let It Roll / Captain Nemo / Written In The Sand Essence / Lost Horizons* / Attack Of The Mad Axeman* / Bijou Pleasurette / Positive Forward / Armed and Ready* / The Thrill Has Gone (Jam with Roth and Satriani).

MSG - Dead Kennedy

No details on the exact date, but would have been recorded when one Ray Kennedy was performing vocals... so that narrows it down considerably (without doubt the worst recruitment cock-up of Schenkers entire career - note the extended instrumental spot in the middle!). Group completed by Andy Nye, Ted McKenna, Dennis Feldman.

Captain Nemo / Rock My Nights Away / Are You Ready / Cry For The Nations / On And On / Mad Axeman / Lipstick Traces / Bijou Pleasurette / Into The Arena / Courvioisier / Rock Will Never Die / Gonna Make You Mine / Rock Bottom / Doctor Doctor

MSG - Happy Birthday Klaus

Recorded 5/5/90 at The Place, Los Angeles (and bonus tracks at Frankfurt, 11/4/91) this CD gets its name from it being Klaus Meines birthday, and the event being celebrated by Robin McAuley singing Happy Birthday! Followed by Klaus and Robin singing on Doctor Doctor. Are very few boots of McAuley Schenker.. this is one of the best.

Save Yourself / Bad Boys / Gimme Your Heart / This Is My Heart / Into The Arena / On And On / Lost Horizons / Anytime / Get Down To Business / I Am Your Radio / Rock Bottom / Lights Out / Happy Birthday Klaus / Doctor Doctor. BONUS TRACKS: Anytime / We Believe In Love / What Happens To Me / Bad Boys / When I'm Gone / Never Ending Nightmare.
