SCORPIONSLive Bites is a live album, released back in 1995, via Polygram Records. Live Bites contains 11 songs that were recorded in Leningrad, San Francisco, Mexico, Munich and Berlin. There are also 3 (previously unreleased) bonus studio tracks on this album: Edge Of Time, Heroes Don’t Cry and White Dove. The liner notes to this album doesn’t contain the recording dates for these live songs; I have read in a few places the dates are 1988 to 1995, just don’t quote me on these dates.

This is yet another fantastic album from the past where you’ll find some constipated fool out there that gave it a sub-par review. In my Metal opinion, this is the iconic Scorpions and this live album plays out brilliantly! I’ve seen the Scorpions live; trust me, this album gives me ostrich bumps all over my face and arms when played at MAXIMUM volume! Whoa. One very cool aspect about Live Bites is that it was produced to sound and feel like one continuous concert experience, with no breaks between the songs; the sounds of Scorpions fans going bonkers fills the gaps!

The entire band and vocalist Klaus Meine sound sensational throughout Live Bites. There are high energy moments to savor, with Tease Me Please Me, Alien Nation and Crazy World being 3 whiz-bang examples. The bonus studio tracks are such a worthy addition at the time, giving the fans both the heavy and softer side of the Scorpions. Heroes Don’t Cry and White Dove are 2 somber, well written and arranged ballads, while Edge Of Time rocks along quite favorably to my ears. Live Bites is an essential part of Scorpions history, hopefully you’ll share with my Metal enthusiasm! Metal be thy name. – Stone
