Creme Soda - Tricky Zingers (1975)

Hailed from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where they first started playing together in 1972. Both 45s are from their album, which contains quite a range of styles. Melodic soft rock predominates as evidenced by Give It Up, Tonight, Deep In A Dream, Keep It Heavy and Daydreamin'; but there's also a couple of weirder more psychedelic tracks in the early Pink Floyd mould - Numero Uno and The Beat Song; some rockabilly/punk (I'm) Chewin' Gum and When The Sun Shines and a bit of punk/blues on That ls That. Overall, it's worth investigating.

OK, I know that "Tricky Zingers" was already posted on several blogs but it is one of my favourites. Rip is from the original album (Trinity CST-11-LA / 1975).

Glad to find this unusual gem. I just discovered this band through a great mix over at Birds With Broken Wings.
