What Would Happen if Western Civilization Came to a Halt...A short excerpt from James Burke's 1970's TV series, "Connections." No copyright infringement intended. Fair use as historical study noted. WARNING: Images from the 1965 blackout in New York City may be disturbing to some. These images capture people from that event who chose the criminal activity of looting. No specific inference is being drawn against any socio-ethnic group by this inclusion. The key, however, is that IF society were to break down to a significant level. certain knowledge and skill-sets could become obsolete in such a post-modern society.

James Burke`s forgotten series: This TV series was the program that got me interested in philosophy and science at a very early age. I own James Burke a debt indeed for this. This collection of programs still has great resonance today regarding the questions that are again very popular today. What is reality? What do any of us really have in common with others in order to be sure that `the real thing` is indeed real? The recording is not great but it is watchable, although the sound may need to be turned up in order to comfortably hear. Enjoy!

Creating the perfect signature sound: Rudolf Schenker and Matthias Jabs give a fascinating insight into their choice of guitars for the recording of „Blackout". Blackout 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition CD/DVD: http://smarturl.it/Blackout_50_CD Vinyl: http://smarturl.it/Blackout_50_LP iTunes: http://smarturl.it/Blackout_50_itunes Vinyl Box: http://smarturl.it/VB_50 ------------------------------------------------------------ http://www.the-scorpions.com https://www.facebook.com/Scorpions 1965 marks the starting point of one of the most successful rock bands of our time. Hailing from Hannover, Germany, the Scorpions embarked on a journey that would lead them around the globe and would establish them as one of the greatest rock bands of all time. With the November 6th release of the 50th Anniversary Deluxe Editions, the Scorpions celebrate their impressive achievements and open their vaults to unleash hitherto unreleased songs, alternative versions of big hits, rough mixes and rare live concert footage. In addition to dozens of unheard studio tracks and live recordings, all CD releases are equipped with extended booklets featuring rare photos and, single covers, backstage passes and additional liner notes by Edgar Klüsener, a former editor in chief of Metal Hammer who has followed the band‘s career closely over several decades. Five of the eight albums are accompanied with a DVD that contains live concert footage from the respective period, together with TV- performances and in- depth interviews with the band. In these interviews they talk about the background history and the creative process of each of these albums: “Lovedrive”, “Blackout”, “Love At first Sting”, “World Wide Live” and “Savage Amusement”. The remastered LP formats are released on 180-gram vinyl in a sleeve replicating the first pressing. They also come with an audio CD, featuring the original track listing and the same bonus audio as the CD formats. A limited and numbered Deluxe Box Set will contain all remasted vinyl discs. Scorpions said, “It’s hard to summarise 50 years in words, but listening back to all those songs – many of them them previously unreleased - recorded in one of our most creative periods, really took us back in time. This was a very heartfelt project for all of us. It brought back great memories whilst we rediscovered our musical DNA by listening to the archives, selecting dozens of unreleased songs and early versions of well-known Scorpions anthems. We really worked on the material to improve the sound quality, but always taking great care to preserve its original feel.”
