The Scorpions: Some Other Guy / Just One Look (1964)

">
no, this is not the german beat- and -krautrock and whatever band, this is a british mid-sixties beat group from manchester. the quality of the rips is not that great, but so was the original quality of the takes.

first of all theres a cover of the classic “some other guy” by songwriter duo jerry leiber and mike stoller – which also used to be part of the beatles early repertoire. fine garage stuff, although rather mediocre than outstanding.
the b-side, “just one look“, is a sweet mid-60s pop number not that brilliant either, but still a nice listen. i rated this record 4 stars all in all, because its not too bad and will please you fans of the original sixties! the groups other recordings are better (more garagy), so i will try to obtain some more vinyls of theirs in the future.
