SCORPIONS BLACKOUT France INCL CUSTOM INNER SLEEVE 12" LP VINYL

  Blackout is the eighth studio album by the German heavy metal band Scorpions, released in 1982 on EMI Germany Records and Mercury Records.

  After losing his voice during the writing of the album, lead vocalist Klaus Meine had to undergo surgery on his vocal cords and it was uncertain whether he would be able to record it. Rudolf Schenker could not choose between his guitar solos on "China White", so the US and European releases differed in this small detail.

  A self-portrait of artist Gottfried Helnwein is featured on the cover of the album. Rudolf Schenker portrays this character in the "No One Like You" music video. .
