Hey. I'm pretty sure that "Zoom" is not a cover version. It was written by Martinelli/Price/Birts who were producers/musicians. I think they wrote that song specifically for Fat Larry's Band. I know the Cadillacs (50's) and The Commodores did songs called "Zoom" but they aren't the same songs. Hope this helps!
