Found this at another board March 2006, thanks to Heh:


Rounded to nearest 1,000. U.S. only. *'s indicate that an album was released before 5/25/91, so not all sales are counted. Club sales through BMG and its peers are not included.

* Lonesome Crow - 21,000

* Fly to the Rainbow - 9,000

Pure Instinct - 98,000

Eye II Eye - 71,000

Unbreakable - 39,000
Released Oct 1990 "Crazy World" was still big when SS began.
Not surprisingly it seems the big catalog seller is "Love At First Sting" from 1984 with big hits like "Rock You Like A Hurricane", "Big City Nights" and the classic ballad "Still Loving You".
I wonder how their compilation albums have sold? Could the platinum "Best of Rockers N' Ballads" (released 1989, platinum 1993) have scanned a million?

I dont think the new album "Humanity Hour 1" has been released in the US yet.
It is here in Europe of course, I think it's great! Their best since the 80's!
They did a brilliant show at Sweden Rock Festival btw.

We can add that Love at first sting and crazy world sold well over half a million each and black out is probaly over 400.000 (best hard rock seller of 1982 with around 240.000 sold). Which makes the scorpions one of the top hard rock sellers in france

Humanity was released in the US earlier this week.
I think it's got a shot at reaching the BB200 next week. Reviews have been good (I too think it's their best in many years), it's on sale - 7.99 USD at Amazon.com and at #99 on their bestseller chart.
Lead single "Humanity" is getting some airplay too. This week it's audience impression was 496K - already totalling 7.1M. This may not seem like a lot, but the biggest single from their last CD (Love 'Em Or Leave 'Em - Unbreakable, 2004) has just 10.9M impressions to date!

Unbreakable didn't chart, infact the Scorpions has just one week on BB200 in the past 11 years (by Bad For Good: The Very Best). But I hope "Humanity Hour 1" makes it. It's one of the best releases this year so far!
