Cute Russian Fake SCORPIONS’ LOVE AT FIRST STING – Gatefold Mini-Lp Cd with poster & obi-strip – following the Japanese Style Pressings. (Only much more fancier...)
More continuation of the awesome Russian superb packaging of some of the The Scorpions cds.
They followed the style of the Japanese packaging but make it much more superior, fancier and such a collectible if you are a fan. Its a beauty on how they create the gatefolds without any official releases to make comparisons with.
Like some others Scorpions records, Love At First Sting never existed in a gatefold version, if I remember correctly.
Firstly lets talk about the album itself. Nine rockin evergreen masterpiece songs. I was listening again to this album while typing this. Its been so long ago...
These are songs I grow up with and I like them all, especially Crossfire and I’m Leaving You.
Funny thing is all my life, now then I realised Still Loving You is 6 minutes plus song. LOL!!!.
In Comparison, I was listening to William Pharell song today on youtube, the song HAPPY. And I got bored at halfway, yes its a nice song, but at 4 minutes plus. IT BORED ME SO MUCH THAT I STOP IT HALFWAY, but yes its a nice song but it gets boring after a short while.
So you got Bad Boys On The Run, you got Rock You Like A Hurricane, the fast The Same Thrill, As Soon As The Good Times Roll which is so so so very sweet song, Big City Nights which has nice singalong when live versions, Coming Home – I like the full versions with the slow intro, and of course the 3 songs mentioned earlier.
Enjoy how the packaging looks like.
The Russians placed the cd on a very nice mini-lp GATEFOLD style. With the lyrics and the photo of The Scorpions in black leathers walking mode printed on the inner gatefold. The Japanese inlets infos and lyrics are printed on separate paper, with the cd itself on another jacket with more photos and Japanese words and details. Plus the Obi Strip of course, which I am not sure copied from which Japanese release, plus a very nice poster – The Scorpions on a field in daylight with scrap cars behind.
Wait for the poster of the Animal Magnetism album on this Russian fake pressings.... Its the most prettiest yet... I will talk cock about it next time.
Till then, enjoy the photos...
