The Trammps: The Legendary Zing Album Featuring the Fabulous Trammps [Buddah, 1975]
Among the attractions of this compilation of disco hits going back to 1972 are three snappy originals, Mr. Bass Man, a rock and roll version of "Zing Went the Strings of My Heart," and a disco version of "Sixty Minute Man" that divides him in two. Among the drawbacks are three soggy originals, all of them orchestral intros disguised as songs. B+
