A SCORPION by any other name...


I while back I wrote a blog about Jimmie McConville's amazing contribution to the Instrumental genre; Scorpion. It was released under his own name, and later by his band The Carnations.

Well, as an adden-dumb to that post, I present this. An outright theft of Scorpion by a band called The Dawn Beats. Not sure what year this is from, probably early 60's. 

Here is the original post:

Three_Scorpions!

And here is Road_Block.

Notice the similarities...
