We are extremely gracious for ... Read more in Amazon's Scorpions Store

3.0 out of 5 stars A CD of two halves 5 Aug 2007
Format:Audio CD
Something of a stopgap release between `93s `Face the Heat' and `96s `Pure Instinct', `Live Bites' has a rather throwaway feel to it, from the mediocre packaging to the uninspired track listing. However, it's definitely a superior album to the two studio releases it that sandwich it and even though it's no match for the Scorpions' previous live outings, `Live Bites' does have plenty of fine moments.
Certainly, the first half of the album is very good indeed; `Tease Me, Please Me' and `No Pain, No Gain' are not the band's best efforts at heavy rock, but the live recording gives them a welcome burst of energy and they sit well among the older songs evident in the first half-hour. Of course, it's these older tracks that give `Live Bites' a touch of class - a fiery version of `In Trance' sounds fresh and exciting, `When the Smoke is Going Down' is performed beautifully and it's great to hear the excellent `Is There Anybody There' in a live setting. Even `Rhythm of Love' comes over very well, with a lot more punch than the studio version. However, after six tracks, things get decidedly patchy, with a smattering of clunky ballads (`Living for Tomorrow' is simply a bad song) filling the gaps between the muscular `Alien Nation' and the hard-hitting `Crazy World'. I can do with out that "song with the whistling", which closes out the live proceedings in wholly predictable and unspectacular style and the two execrable ballads tacked onto the end will definitely have the listener reaching for the stop button.
So, `Live Bites' is a record of two halves and on vinyl, side one would get worn out a lot quicker than side two. For the Scorpions fan, it's a good purchase because of the great versions of a few old classics; for the uninitiated, `World Wide Live' and `Tokyo Tapes' offer a far better introduction to the band.

5.0 out of 5 stars a good live release. 20 July 2012
Format:Audio CD
there are several versions of this one with a few different tracks. I have both of them , in fact I have every scorps release as well as most of their singles even. that's alot of releases. This one showcases the band at their best, playing powerfully. This band is popular enough to be large accross the world including south , central and north america and they always deliver. The song selection is decent here and that helps too. the sound is perfect and the scorpions really do sound great live. I just saw them at red rocks in colorado and they were excellent. (people from london were there even, as red rocks is perhaps one of the worlds best live venues).
