Scorpions - the back cover of Lovedrive

Huge fan of the Scorps.  Not counting, but I might have 6 or 7 of their records.  This is the back cover of Lovedrive.  Now dosen't that sound like it should be the name of an album by Spinal Tap?  Of course if you have this record - you will know that the front cover is far more memorable.  Look it up and you will see why.  But backa to Lovedrive.   Per Mr. Wiki, it "is the sixth studio album by the German heavy metal band Scorpions, released in 1979.  Lovedrive was a major evolution of the band's sound, which exhibited their "classic style" that would be later developed over their next few albums. Michael Schenker, younger brother of rhythm guitarist Rudolf Schenker, performed lead guitar on 3 songs. The RIAA certified Lovedrive as Gold on 28 May 1986 and the album ranked 25 on IGN's list of the top 25 metal albums. This is the first album to feature Matthias Jabs on lead guitar, and by extent, first to feature the band's "classic" lineup."
