Best of Rockers ‘n’ Ballads is a compilation album by the German hard rock band Scorpions, released in 1989. All songs on this album are from their tenure with Mercury Records, from 1979 to 1988, in addition to rare or never-before released material.
The record features several rare or completely unreleased tracks: “Hey You”, from the group’s Animal Magnetism sessions; the re-recorded “long version”of “Is There Anybody There?”; and a cover of The Who’s “I Can’t Explain”, which was also included on that same year’s Stairway to Heaven/Highway to Hell charity compilation album.
The track listing and individual running times differ between the US, European and Asian editions. The US version omits several tracks, but includes the longer, unedited version of “Hey You”. The European version was re-released as The Essential Scorpions in 2003.
