iTunes Editors’ Notes

Recorded in California, France, and West Germany during 1984’s Love at First Sting Tour, World Wide Live captures Scorpions at the indisputable peak of their career. Propelled by the crossover success of “Rock You Like a Hurricane,” Scorpions were playing the biggest shows of their life but hadn't yet lost their early hunger. The most crucial aspect of this kind of live album is the sound. After all, it’s extremely hard to retain a metal band’s cohesive attack when recording in cavernous sports arenas. Fortunately, Scorpions worked with their longtime engineer Dieter Dierks, who was able to maintain a sound quality that was full-bodied and very realistic. These recordings are rare among concert albums in that they somehow translate both the largeness of the venues and the tightly wound attack of the music. Highlights include “Blackout,” “Bad Boys Running Wild,” and “Holiday.” “Rock You Like a Hurricane” sounds like it was written specifically for this type of venue, and by the time you reach that performance, you start to understand the additional juice these songs are given in the live setting.

Customer Reviews

"...their only worthwhile live album" WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Whoever wrote that line should have his head examined. WWL is a GREAT album, but certainly not their only worthwhile live album. Scorpions have ignored their 70's catalog for over 20 years now. 1978's Tokyo Tapes is a killer offering of some of their best material from this long-forgotten era when they were putting out some very creative, almost prog, rock & metal.

Yeah!!!!

This album is a definate. I have the older version on cd but this version is 1000 times better. It has Dynamite (Best scorp song ever) which is extended for they do an encore on this song. Make it Real has some awsome soloing. This version also has another peice of meat, can't get enough pt. 1 and 2, and six string sting. these aren't on the original. No one like you is another hit with some of the highest soloing i've ever heard. Overall great and get it!!!

Great Deal!

This album kicks but. One of my favorite live records of all time. Was lucky enough to see them on Love at First Sting tour and they tore it up! For $5.99 you can't beat it! Thanks iTunes!
