I lived in the Detroit area in the late 60's, and I remember this band.

Scorpion were not part of the local rock scene (MC-5, SRC, Amboy Dukes, Bob Seger) back then.

Like Rare Earth, Scorpion was a bar band . They also did session work as well. They featured a great guitarist, though his name escapes me now.

Thanks for posting this lp, and keep up the great work!

Lead guitarist was Mike Campbell who later became lead in Detrit's "hair". He changed his name to Mike Champion and got into acting. 2nd guitar was Hal Sider.

I knew both Mike and Hal well. Although I am originally from Detroit, I knew them after they came to California. I sure would like to know where they are now.
