Of all the Paul McCartney sounding singers, Zuider Zee's Richard Orange wins hands down. Even Emitt Rhodes didn't sound this close.

Hailing from Memphis and managed/produced by Leland Russell ex member of popsikers Gordian Knot (and writer of their finest tune, "Carraway Stream"), Zuider Zee put out just one albums worth of high energy power pop, funky rockers and gentle Macca style ballads. An array of guitar tones, sound effects and some of the best use of the Moog in a pop record (check the solo in "Magic Fingers") keep each and every song on the record interesting. There is definitely no filler on here. Overall, sounding like the missing link between Wings' "Band On The Run" and 10CC's "Deceptive Bends".

Not long after the albums release, bassist John Bonar was beaten and stabbed while fighting off thieves from stealing the band's van after a gig. The band effectively collapsed in 1976 when the other members refused to continue touring with a replacement while Bonar underwent extensive physical therapy.

Recorded at TRANS MAXIMUS STUDIO (TMI) in Memphis, TN in 1974

The Original Zuider Zee was a Rock Band whose members included Richard Orange, Kim Foreman, John Bonar, Gary Simon Bertrand, and Andre' LeJeune.

LYRICS:

"And It starts with the feeling that is one with the moment in your heart...

And it ends in the moment you come down and remember who you are...

And it disregards and it freezes time, while it keeps you warm inside...

And it shuts things out and ignores the tears, keeping sorrow far outside.

It's the last song of its kind, and it's feeling and it's fine...

It's the last song running wild, in the wilderness it's a child...

In the city it's a reason to just smile.

Then, it leaves you completely feeling weaker than you know you thought you were,

But a very deep impression will remain to remind you of a girl.

It's the last song of its kind, and it's breathing, it's alive...

It's the last song running wild, in the prison dark it's in style...

In a lifetime it's a reason to get by...

It's the type of song that helps you cry your mind,

I hope it's not the last song of its kind."
