    'Zachariah' the first Electric Western 1971
    A German guy who cut his teeth in the SCORPIONS (German rock band) during the mid-1970s then left to form his own band in 1978 called ELECTRIC SUN a 3-piece group that played in a simular vain to the JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE.
    The Jimi Hendrix connection doesn't end there cos Uli's German girlfriend for many years during the late 1970s and 1980s was none other then JIMI HENDRIX old girlfriend MONIKA DANNEMAN the same woman that was with Jimi in the early hours of September 18th 1970 when Jimi was found dead in bed in a London hotel.

    The only 2 albums of his that i own is the the 1st album EARTHQUAKE (1979) and the 2nd album FIREWIND (1980).

    Both the EARTHQUAKE & FIREWIND albums are very good albums but are pretty rare to find nowadays i haven't seen either album in any record shops for the last 5-10 years.

    ^^ I got Firewind LP few months ago. Never knew this guy before and by the cover I thought "this might be a heavy rock album" and I paid £3 for that.

    You did well Nolo!! You have got a great bargain.....Uli is the MASTER :bow:when it comes to the geeetar something Ive been trying to convince my local mates Sox and Sweaty for years :D
    The 2 albums EZ RIDER mentions are a must in anyones record/cd collection.
    Here are a couple of gems from Uli with ELECTRIC SUN. Id love to see him return to this style again as he is well into symphonic stuff at the moment.
