TAKEN BY FORCE was released on 4 December 1977 and was the last studio album with Uli Jon Roth and the first with the new drummer Herman Rarebell. The newcomer also introduced himself as a songwriter and contributed the lyrics to "He's A Woman - She's A Man". TAKEN BY FORCE features a number of songs that have since become classics. "Steamrock Fever" is one of them, a typical live hit that was an absolute hit with the audience for many years. Then we have "I've Got To Be Free", written by Uli Jon Roth; a high-energy and hard-rocking piece with great riffs and some guitar magic that once again demonstrates Roth's exceptional class.
