The Trammps: Zing Went Bummie And The Bums...!

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, 17 February 1976

THIS FEATURE could so easily have been devoted to – wait for it! – Bummie & the Bums! Who is this Bummie character I can hear you chortle? None other than deep voiced Earl Young, the drummer of just about every session that has ever been recorded in Philadelphia and the leader and bass boice of the highly successful Trammps group.
