NOTE

Heavy Hitters is a 2005 cover album by the Michael Schenker Group. Originally planned by Schenker as a collection of covers featuring himself and a "revolving all-star cast of guest musicians," the album was labeled and marketed as an MSG album, with the result that Schenker received only a flat fee. In 2007, it was re-released as Michael Schenker solo album under the title Doctor Doctor: The Kulick Sessions and included 4 additional tracks (Save Yourself, Finding My Baby, Doctor Doctor and War Pigs).
This latest re-release entitled 'By Invitation Only' contains all the previous cover tracks supplemented with the Iron Maiden cover 'Run To The Hills' with Robin McAuley. This track originally taken from the Iron Maiden Tribute: 'Numbers From the Beast'.
