Zoot Compiled into Archaeology Collection To Mark 50th Anniversary

Australia’s legendary 60s rock band Zoot will be remembered with the 50th anniversary collection Archaeology.

Zoot’s four members all went onto individual successes. Beeb Birtles became a founding member of Little River Band, Rick Springfield reached solo pop stardom in the USA and became a well known actor, Rick Brewer joined The Ferrets and the late Darryl Cotton became a solo star and TV star in Australia before teaming up with Russell Morris and Jim Keays for Cotton, Keays and Morris.

“Listening back to all these tracks I can hear what a great band ZOOT was,” Rick Springfield says.

EMI will release Archaeology on 23 November. “EMI signed a very young and naïve ZOOT back in 1968,” founding member Beeb Birtlessays. “Fast-forward 50 years and ZOOT is thrilled to be back with EMI, where it all started, for the release of ZOOT ARCHAEOLOGY.”

Darryl Cotton died in 2012 just after the band reformed for a cruise in the Caribbean. The album will include a new recording od ‘Life in a Northern Town’. “Sitting in the studio listening to Darryl’s solo vocal gave us all goosebumps,” Rick says. Beeb has recorded a new third verse. “Fifty-four years after I met Darryl, we have a new ZOOT song,” Beeb smiles. “Thanks to Rick, I got to sing one more time with my best friend.”

Robert Rigby’s Ambition Records previously release of The Zoot Live album will be included in Archaeology.

I could go to a James Taylor show just for the stories. The man is a part of music history and is still around to tell the tales of how it all began. Like, for instance, being the first artist signed to Apple Records. James “auditioned” for Apple with his song ‘Something In The Way She Moves’. "Paul went away and started the label and George went away and wrote the song”, he said.
