electric, and the arrangement is unlike any
other of this song.
Smither has been around a long time now,
so it's a pleasure and a treat to find him still
making records this vital and this much
fun. - John Heidt

Zuider Zee
Zeenith

Not every great
band makes it to
the big-time; Zuider
Zee is the perfect
example. In the mid'70s, they were a fiery power-pop band based
in Memphis, touring their tails off and
releasing one LP in 1975. It tanked, and the
band disappeared a few years later. Zeenith,
however, is an unreleased album recorded
between 1972-74, now finally seeing the light
of the day.
Between the band's sharp arrangements
and singer-guitarist Richard Orange's vocals
that evoke Paul McCartney, Zuider Zee will
remind you of Badfinger, the Raspberries, T.
Rex, 10cc, and Big Star.
"Haunter Of The Darkness" is snotty

all types
old & new
pickups

glam-rock, featuring Orange's sweet vocals
over a fuzzed guitar riff and clavinet groove.
"Miami" sounds like a missing Wings track,
with ringing acoustic guitar over a delicious
bass-note thump.
The Beatles vibe continues on "Royal
Command Performance," a laidback gem
with echoey volume swells in the background.
"Lancelot's Theme" is a gorgeous piece of AM
pop, alternating between minor- and majorkey sections, and underpinned with acoustic
and catchy lyrics. Again, the frontman sounds
eerily like McCartney - it's almost uncanny.
While it's a shame Zuider Zee never found
success back in the day, you'll have a blast
rediscovering these long-lost popsters. - Pete
Prown

June Core

Rhythm & Blues

For decades,
drummer June Core
has been a mainstay
of the West Coast
blues scene. He's
logged stints and sessions with Elvin Bishop,
Terry Hanck, Mark Hummel, Kid Andersen,

Little Charlie and the Nightcats, Aki Kumar,
Mike Schermer, Andy Santana, the Soul
Drivers, and the Mannish Boys, and has
been Charlie Musselwhite's percussionist
for 15 years.
"Non-leader" (a.k.a. sideman) solo projects
can often lack continuity, especially when
the artist has to rely on several singers. But
in this case, A) it means there's a multitude
of great talent, and B) the impeccable taste
that got Core unending work serves him
well as a leader. And Core's 10 originals
push the blues-soul envelope; for instance,
the jungly title cut contains only drums and
four interweaving harmonicas (Hummel,
Kumar, Rick Estrin, and R.J. Mischo) and
two organ-groove instrumentals feature
the dual guitars of Charlie Baty and Chris
Cain over the B-3 of Jim Pugh (Robert Cray,
Etta James).
The uptown cool of "We're Busy" is
contrasted with the lowdown rawness of
"Standin' On The Corner," consisting of
only Core's big beat and John Lawton's vocal
and slide guitar. And on "This Is My Prayer,"
Dennis Dove's passionate vocal is backed only
by Pugh's organ - the drummer/composer
completely lays out. Now, that's taste! - DF
