An early/mid-1970s group that sound like a hybrid between T-Rex and Big Star, might sound like a band that should be universally adored but Memphis??? Zuider Zee have remained something of an untapped curiosity. Until now. With this first time release of the album Zeenith, recorded between 1972 and ???74 and featuring all previously unheard tracks, the band should no longer be a boxed-up mystery.
Prior to Zeenith, Zuider Zee???s 1975 self-titled LP was the only record out there that existed. Released on Columbia, it was hailed as a true great power pop record of the time by groups such as Cheap Trick. ???Rick Nielsen called me one night,??? Zuider Zee???s Richard Orange recalls. ???He was asking about why weren???t we bigger and doing as well as they were. He said: ???Man, you???re so damn good, do you know where I have your phone number? I have your number right beneath John Lennon???s number. Fuggin??? John Lennon, Richard!???
