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 1974 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. Comprised entirely of previously unreleased tracks, -Zeenith- is an album in which sugar/coated glam stomp nestles up alongside Mersey beat and where rousing power pop, crunchy rock and a undercurrent of pop/peppered psychedelia all merge seamlessly.
