Hybrid SACD Edition Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio
Expressing a career like the one of the Scorpions in mere numbers is almost impossible. However, one number that should still be mentioned is more than 100 million records sold to date. This makes the Scorpions the most successful rock band of Continental Europe by far. 1979's Best of Scorpions collects the group's finest '70s material from such cornerstone early albums as Fly to the Rainbow (1974), In Trance (1975), Virgin Killer (1976) and Taken by Force (1977). The songs are raw and heavy with a large emphasis on Uli John Roth's Hendrix-like lead work, Klaus Meine's powerful vocals and Rudolf Schenker's gift for writing memorable melodic riffs. Every track here is solid gold from arena anthems to rifftastic heavy metal epics to power ballads and everything in between.
