'Fly To The Rainbow' is the second studio album Scorpions released in 1974. The whole band shared vocals throughout this album, which is interesting; Ulrich Roth who replaced Michael Schenker as lead guitarist in 'Drifting Sun' also handles lead vocals in it. He's also dealing with co-vocals in 'Fly To The Rainbow'. 
Three songs were co-written with 'departing' guitarist Michael Schenker as part of his 'deal'/promise with the Scorpions for leaving them and joining the U.K. rock band UFO in April of that year, at only 18 y/o (but he returned 5 years later).
