3.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag, 20 April 2010
Straight to the point. As one reviewer remarked, there is no sound improvement on the album, just louder, that's all. So you can dunk CD 1. Next, CD 2 is supposed to give us Frankie fans some pleasureable thrill, but sad to say, no. While the demo tracks are an interesting addition, the rest can be left out. "Relax (Greatest Bits)" is actually the original cassette single. While it's a historical curiorsity, it is actually an edited amalgam of the "Sex Mix", "Instrumental Mix" and the 7" mix. The "One September" and "One February" b-sides (which were already available in the last re-issue) are just nonsence gibberish. Why include "Power Of Love" extended version ? It's a strange inclusion while the extended versions of "Relax", "Two Tribes" and "Welcome" are left out. Then again, you can't really include all their extended versions, right ? so they should just leave them all out. "Disneyland" was already released in the "12 Inch" 2CD version. The 2 spoken snippets can be left out completely. Anyway, "The Last Voice" has been around a long time, included in the ending of the "Two Tribes (Annihilation mix)". "Relax (Disco mix)" is another amalgam of the "Sex Mix" and the 7" mix. Again, though historically interesting, you don't need it. With all the above taken out, I would include other interesting unreleased tracks, such as "Relax (International), Welcome...(Bernard Rose version), Welcome... (Pleasurefix), Only Star In Heaven (Starfix), and the other proper b-sides like "Happy Hi, Get It On and The World Is My Oyster (7" and 12")"

4.0 out of 5 stars One of Scorpions' best !!, 14 Aug. 2001
This review is from: Taken By Force (Audio CD)
I am not a Scorpions fan, so many may not agree that this is their best album. Their earlier songs in the early 70s were to me, a bunch of tuneless mindless rock songs, except for "In Trance" and "Pictured Life". Here you'll find 8 solid, mature and polished rock numbers, including their incredibly wonderful and heart-touching "Born To Touch Your Feelings" Every song is a classic, and non Scorpions fan may even mistake this as a "best of" compilation. But they should have deleted "He Is A Woman", which sounds out of place here, and should have been thrown back to their earlier albums like "Virgin Killer". But with this new edition including 2 bonus tracks, it is a great buy. I have been waiting for years for this to be released on cd, and you'll bet I have already pre-ordered this !

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of late 60s Elvis, 3 Aug. 2001
This must be the best of all the selections in Elvis' late 60s catalogue. Though many of the released singles in this package failed to hit it big in the charts, failed miserably in fact, but it contains some of his best ballads.
You have some gospel rock, "Let Us Pray" love ballads, "Almost" including a western ballad "Charro" and hip rockers "Clean Up Your own Backyard". Fact is, I am not an Elvis fan, I hate most of his late 50s and early 60s rock n roll, but have grown to love his 70s ballads. You can't get these songs anywhere else, not even in any of the numerous greatest hits sets, including the "Walk A Mile" box set. Get it before it runs out !
