SHANNON AND THE CLAMS: Ozma: 7” single

Throwback to the late ‘50s/early ‘60s rock’n’roll sound. Retro sounds for today’s nostalgic-minded youth. “Ozma” is the better of the two here. It’s a song about a dog who has passed away. (I heard that the first song Pearl Jam had a hit with was about a dog as well.) “Apples and oranges here,” I can hear you shout. The flipside, a cover the “Muppet Babies” theme song, is a total throwaway.
