Wanna See My “Essential Michael Schenker Group” CD? It’s Really Cool…

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Metal, Music, rock music with tags , , , , on June 17, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Michael Schenker Group - The Essential - promo front cover CD - #05MOMS

That’s it at the top! That’s my Essential Michael Schenker Group CD! Is that really cool or what?

_________________________

The Essential Michael Schenker Group was released back in 1992, via EMI Records Group / Chrysalis. I bought this CD as part of the same bundle of used CD’s that my DIO Anthology CD was in:

Wanna See My DIO “Anthology” CD? It’s Really Cool…

Whoa! Once again, the collector side of me cannot pass up a Michael Schenker greatest hits title, regardless of already owning the songs. Besides, when it comes to these used CD bundles, I always pay a really, really good price!

What I find interesting is that I’ve always LOVED the MSG ballad: Never Trust A Stranger. This song’s music and lyrics have always chilled me out in such a grand way, it’s amazing. I know what y’all are thinking: c’mon, Stone, Michael Schenker has TONS of better songs than that!

When I come across older CD’s or vinyl records (that I don’t have) of my Metal and Hard Rock heroes, while Metal hunting in public, I begin to sweat profusely and feel like I’m high. I cannot control it, it’s the way my body and brain are wired. TRUTH. Metal Be Thy Name!

Track List:

1. Armed And Ready, 2. Cry For The Nations, 3. Bijou Pleasurette, 4. Into The Arena, 5. Attack Of The Mad Axeman, 6. On And On, 7. Never Trust A Stranger, 8. Assault Attack, 9. Rock You To The Ground, 10. Samurai, 11. Desert Song, 12. Captain Nemo (Single Version), 13. Rock Will Never Die (Live At The Hammersmith Odeon), 14. Still Love That Little Devil, 15. Don’t Take It Out On Me
