The real Scorpions from the UK; not the German band who makes more noise than music.

The Scorpions were a Beat / Rhythm and Blues group, originally from Manchester in England. The Scorpions proved far more successful in Holland than in England, and are often believed to be a "Nederbeat" band alongside The Outsiders and Q65.

The Scorpions were formed in early 1964 by singer and frontman Peter Lewis, with Tony Briley on bass guitar and Mike Delaney on drums. Two cousins, Tony Postill (Anthony Harold Postill) and Rodney Postill (Joseph Rodney Postill), completed the quintet’s line-up on lead- and rhythm guitar respectively.

The Scorpions got signed by Dutch promoter Jan Vis to play the lucrative dance hall circuit around Holland from their new base in Den Bosch. The record companies in Holland were also starting to take notice, and The Scorpions were quickly signed by the CNR label, who brought in Addy Kleyngeld to produce their first recordings.

Their debut single was released in August 1964. It was a cover Chuck Berry's "Bye Bye Johnny" with "Rip It Up" on the flip, but made no immediate impact on the record buying public.

Yet The Scorpions stuck with their classic Rock And Roll style on a trio of follow-up singles released in October – November 1965.

However, in spite of being given massive airplay by Radio Veronica and Radio Noordzee, The Scorpions' first four singles all failed to register in the charts.
In late 1964, bassist Tony Briley left The Scorpions. Rodney Postill then took over on bass, Tony Postill switched from lead to rhythm guitar, and Terry Morton (Terence James Morton) came in as new lead guitarist. He had previously played with Wayne Fontana And the Mindbenders.

Their next choice for a single, released in December 1964, was Fats Domino's "My Girl Josephine". And with the re-titled "Hello Josephine", The Scorpions finally got their breakthrough as a recording act in Holland. The single entered Radio Veronica's Top 40 on February 20th. 1965 and stayed in the charts for an impressive 33 weeks, 13 of which in the top 10 and peaking at the No. 2 spot.

An album with the obvious title of "Hello Josephine" was also released by the CNR label that same month to cash in on the group’s chart success. The "Hello Josephine" album contained all The Scorpions' singles, A- and B-sides, and was released in the CNR label "Hartewens" series.

The Scorpions underwent a new line-up change in early 1965 when drummer
Mike Delaney quit and was replaced by Ian "Skins" Lucas, who had previously played with Wayne Fontana & The Jets.

The success of "Hello Josephine" secured consistent bookings for the group, but they also found time to start recording a new album, again with Addy Kleyngeld behind the controls.

Things now looked really bright for the group in Holland, but then at the peak
of their success, their work permits expired, and they had to return home to Manchester. This seemed to be a crushing blow for the group as three members quit (Tony Postill, Rodney Postill and Terry Morton).

Original tracks:

1. Hello Josephine (2:25)
2. Johnny B. Goode (2:24)
3. Keep A-Knockin' (1:50)
4. Some Other Guy (2:43)
5. Just One Look (2:50)
6. Just Like Me (2:12)
7. Ann-Louise (3:15)
8. Bye Bye Johnny (2:44)
9. Rip It Up (2:27)
10. What'd I Say (3:18)
11. Not Fade Away (2:22)
12. Baby Back Now (3:22)

Bonus tracks from singles:

13. Stand By Me (3:27)
14. My Baby (2:39)
15. Under The Boardwalk (2:59)
16. Get Out Of My Life Woman (2:24)
