Even though "Tokyo Tapes" was already an excellent live record, the 1985 release "World Wide Live" is the by far best compilation the band ever published. This live album belongs, together with Iron Maiden "Live After Death" and Deep Purple's "Made in Japan", to the alltime faves when it comes to concerts archived on an album.

Recorded in San Diego, Los Angeles, Costa Mesa, Paris and Köln, this fantastic longplayer contains the best of the best the Scorpions have ever written and released. Newer tracks from "Backout" and "Love at First Sting" goes hand in hand with earlier classics such as the excellent "The Zoo" and "Holiday", one of the best Scorpions ballads ever. This album is pure power with a sound that is outstanding. It captures the live vibe by still sounding clear, powerful and nuanced.

The band was also followed on this tour by a film crew and the result can be seen on the bonus DVD. It contains the entire documentary done at that time. 

Even if you call the album already your own there is enough new stuff coming with this anniversary edition, that justifies buying this version.
