The Trammps: Trammps [Golden Fleece, 1975]
You know what they mean by calling this a disco group? They mean that all the fast songs sound pretty good and all the slow ones don't. Which means that Jimmy Ellis's gritty tenor isn't anything to dwell on but gets the job done. Thank Ron Baker, Norman Harris, and (drummer and occasional bass singer) Earl Young for giving Jimmy and the band eight quickies. And recommend their methods to other Philadelphians. B+
