The Scorpions will be releasing a three-CD career retrospective, called "Box Of Scorpions", on May 25. The set features 51 tracks from throughout their recording history, which started with 1972's "Lonesome Crow". There aren't any unreleased songs on "Box Of Scorpions", but there are a few tracks that have only been released on best-of collections "Over The Top" and "Life Goes Around" from 1997's "Deadly Sting: The Mercury Years", and "Cause I Love You" and "Bad For Good" from 2002's "Bad For Good: The Very Best Of The Scorpions" as well as a cover of THE WHO's "I Can't Explain", which THE SCORPIONS recorded for the anti-drug Make A Difference Foundation.

Most songs are from Mercury years.

i dig the scorpions every once in a while... but this may be a little too much. i'd probably just stick to the deadly sting compilation.

I already have best of vol1 and 2 best of rockers and ballads and the mercury years... there isn't much on this that is not already on those. (I'd buy otherwise)

well, since i've never been huge into the scorpions, but I like some of their stuff, this type of collection is perfect for me.

thanks for the heads up
