This album willl always hold a special place in my heart as it was the first live album I ever bought from Woolworths of all places. An excellent reference point for the golden RCA years featuring stellar performances of all their best tracks from this era. The only down side are the appalling cover versions and Fly To The Rainbow which is just too hippy. An excellent live album and one of my personal faves-Classic!!

Pictured Life and Backstage Queen just rock!!!

ULI ROTH IS GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: Tim Date: September 10, 2004 at 8:39
Whoever decided to omit 'Polar Nights' when this was remastered wants shooting. There are still some great moments, but Uli Roth's guitar work on 'Polar Nights' remains one of the greatest moments in the history of the electric guitar.

This is what introduced me to the Scorps, had to back-track immediately afterward. This is a great live album with phenominal musicianship. This is most certainly a must for the collection.

From: Buitre Date: December 22, 2009 at 4:38
I rememer buying this one the same date I bought MSG's Live at Budokan. That's a long time ago now but both records still rock my house from day to day. Scorps Tokio Tapes is IMO one of the best live recordings ever made, pure power, wild riffs and Klaus is just screaming the hell out of his throat. The only anoying point might be their looks (dressed like cheap "toreros") That was just a joke, well no, not really a joke, but we should only listen to the music and that's just superb.

From: Remastered Reason Date: March 12, 2010 at 21:04
"Polar Nights" is a balls out rocker except for the singing, it takes some getting used to. Left as an instrumental, it would have been perfect. Otherwise, at the very least Klaus should have done the deed. Also, the nowhere else found on any album penned "All Night Long" begins things rather rousingly. Overall, an awesome document of early Scorps.

One of the best Live-CDs ever!! After Uli Jon Roth's exit the creative moments of Scorps-Music came to an end!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 24, 2017 at 21:08
Good first official live album by the Scorps!...songs # 1,2,3,4,5,10,11,13,14,15,16 & 18 are the ones for me ...recommended stuff to listen to...87/100

From: Doug Date: September 25, 2017 at 12:05
This is the album that turned me on to the Scorps!
