VIDEO: Scorpions preview Savage Amusement expanded reissue

The Scorpions are sharing a video preview of the upcoming expanded reissue of their 1998 album “Savage Amusement” as part of the band’s 50th Anniversary Deluxe Editions series.

The follow-up to 1984’s “Love At First Sting” peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 on its way to selling more than a million copies in the States alone. The project was led by the single “Rhythm Of Love”, which featured backing vocals by Canadian rocker Lee Aaron.

Due November 6, the expanded reissue of “Savage Amusement” includes six previously unreleased demo tracks and a companion DVD with videos, interviews and the documentary “To Russia With Love.”

The project is one of 8 expanded albums issued the same day, including “Taken By Force” (1977), “Tokyo Tapes” (1978), “Lovedrive” (1979), “Animal Magnetism” (1980), “Blackout” (1982) and “Love At First Sting” (1984) – as well as 1985’s “World Wide Live.”

The Scorpions recently launched the North American leg of their 50th Anniversary Tour in support of their latest album, “Return To Forever.”
