Scorpions y sus portadas censuradas.


Otro grupo que tuvo múltiples problemas en diversos paises con sus portadas, bien por la legislación, por las casas de discos, por los centros comerciales donde se iban a vender, o sea que hay múltiples portadas alternativas para los coleccionistas. Eso sí las originales eran buenas, las alternativas cualquier foto del grupo valía.

The original version of Scorpions’ In Trance cover (1975), photographed by Michael von Gimbut,was censored for showing the cover model’s exposed breast hanging down towards the guitar. Later releases have the breast blacked out so that it is not visible. This is the first of many Scorpions album covers that have been censored. The band’s former lead guitarist Uli Jon Roth claimed he may have come up with the “idea to do the thing with the guitar for the cover of In Trance”. However, in a 2008 interview Roth claimed that early Scorpions album covers in general were “the record company’s idea, but we certainly didn’t object. And so shame on us. Those covers were probably the most embarrassing thing I’ve ever been involved with.” He did, though, classify the In Trance cover as “borderline”.

O tempora o mores, but the fact that the Original Virgin Killer cover caused much more upsets nowadays than during 70s must be a warning for the dawning of a new dark age of conservatism

Esta fue un terrible escándalo. Estos censores deberían darse una vuelta por determinados museos, lo mismo cerraban palacios reales cargados de arte rococó y se quedaban tan anchos.
