The Zig Zag People - 1969 - Take Bubble Gum Music Underground

9 tracks
The Phish of their day, The Zig Zag People were jam-happy session players psychedelisizing bubblegum songs made famous by 1910 Fruitgum Co., Music Explosion, Tommy James & The Shondells, and Ohio Express. Group named after either a maneuver performed by a football running back or a type of paper used to wrap a particular herb. The answer was not available at press time. The highlight is “Sally Goes To The Dentist” if only because the group pokes fun at Buddah Records located at 1650 Broadway.

Who actually played and sang on this great album? No one knows. By the sound of things, maybe a Blood, Sweat, or Tear. Possibly a Steppenwolf. Regardless, these spacy, jazzy covers (with Chewy as a highlight) and two excellent originals written by Jack Murphy & Mickey Earle (Sally & Peel) makes this a must album to search out, roll up, and smoke on your turntable.
