The Michael Schenker Group MSG LP (Picture Disc)
Second Studio Album On Picture Disc Vinyl LP!
Featuring "Ready To Rock" & "Attack Of The Mad Axeman"!
The Michael Schenker Group is a rock back formed in 1979 by former UFO and
Scorpions guitarist Michael Schenker. Their music is described as mostly melodic
hard rock with progressive undertones. Michael Schenker is known for his
unorthodox approach to lead guitar, as well as his half-black, half-white Gibson
Flying V guitar.
MSG is the second studio album for The Michael Schenker Group, originally
released in 1981. The album reached #14 on the UK albums chart and is now
reissued on the newly independent Chrysalis Records. Includes the singles "Ready
To Rock" and "Attack Of The Mad Axeman".
"Influential guitarist Michael Schenker led his MSG band through their second
set of dependable rockers on this, the group's sophomore outing. Although the
Michael Schenker Group's sound doesn't offer much variation on the formula
developed by Schenker's former band, UFO, it hardly matters -- the guitar
playing is killer, as always. Schenker's fluid technical facility and impeccable
tone maintain top billing throughout. Capable singer Gary Barden also helps to
distinguish tracks like 'On and On' and 'Let Sleeping Dogs Lie' with memorable
melodies, while predictably, standard fare such as 'Are You Ready to Rock'
doesn't deliver many surprises. Also features a bizarre cameo from Stephen
Stills." - Andy Hinds, allmusic.com
