Listening Booth — Scorpions, “The Sails of Charon”

For Friday, here’s a slab of vintage 1970s metal and progressive rock all rolled up into one beautiful, German package. Wait, that doesn’t sound right. Anyway, this song is on the excellent 1977 Scorpions LP Taken By Force. It was the last Scorps record with the inimitable Uli Jon Roth.

This is a promo video and thus features the horribly synced drumming you’d expect to see in such a thing.
