Scorpions Savage Amusement: 50th Anniversary Edition on Import 180g LP + CD
Featuring the Original Album Remastered on 180g Vinyl Plus CD with Remastered Album & Bonus Audio
1965 marks the starting point of one of the most successful rock bands of our time. Hailing from Hannover, Germany, the Scorpions embarked on a journey that would lead them around the globe and would establish them as one of the greatest rock bands of all time. With the November 2015 release of the 50th Anniversary Deluxe Editions, the Scorpions celebrate their impressive achievements and open their vaults to unleash hitherto unreleased songs, alternative versions of big hits, rough mixes and rare live concert footage. The remastered LP formats are released on 180-gram vinyl in a sleeve replicating the first pressing. They also come with an audio CD, featuring the original track listing and the same bonus audio as the CD formats.
Expectations were sky high when the Scorpions entered the studio to record the follow up to the hugely successful albums Love At First Sting and World Wide Live, yet the band were not in a rush. Instead, it took the Scorpions almost three years before they finally released Savage Amusement. The album surprised fans and critics alike, not least because of the musical changes it introduced. Some were subtle, others less so. Savage Amusement documents the band's ability to react to changes in the musical landscape as well as their willingness to experiment and it turned out to be yet another brilliant album. Since its release in April 1988, it has proved to be yet another global success for the Scorpions and became their sixth consecutive album to go platinum.
