Singer, composer but most of all keyboardist ZOOT MONEY, real name George Bruno, is all over the show. We have a look at his BIG ROLL BAND, which played steamy soul and R&B. Zoot & Co. took over from Georgie Fame at The Flamingo as the resident band. They releases several singles and albums, but never broke through commercially. A fine 4 cd-box titled Big Time Operator includes about everything you need to know about this period.
Money folded the band and went psych as DANTALION’s CHARIOT – to no avail. He and his mate Andy Somers (later of The Police) then accepted ERIC BURDON’s offer to join THE NEW ANIMALS in California. They can be heard on two albums: ‘Love Is’ and ‘Everyone Of Us’ (1968). Zoot Money recorded several solo albums and is still playing live. Andy Somers joined Soft Machine, then The Police.
Zoot Money’s website:

RADIO 68 PLAYS Zoot Money’s Big Roll Band live at the BBC (from the box), Dantalion’s Chariot and Eric Burdon & The New Animals feat Zoot Money and Andy Somers aka Summers.


“The new 4-disc box set Big Time Operator includes these interviews without explicitly charting the transition from club-soul staple to freakdom. While not big on surprises, it does pack multiple musical punches. Collecting everything the band released and appending it with a 1966 live show first issued in 1999 and previously unreleased BBC radio sessions stresses how hot this band could be. Future Police member Andy Summers (then Somers) was their guitarist but that is not why they were great. They played as a band: Money was their leader, but this was an ensemble which locked in with itself to create maximum impact.
Although Zoot Money’s Big Roll Band charted with just one single, 1966’s “Big Time Operator”, the band’s labels had faith. Over 1964 and 1967 Columbia and, initially, Decca issued seven singles and two albums. The key to the commitment was the band’s live draw. They cooked, Money was a showman and dates were always a sell-out. With a reputation forged at London’s Flamingo Club as the replacement for the mod-favoured London venue’s previous regular band Georgie Fame & the Blue Flames, audiences knew what they were going to get”.

JOHNNY HALLYDAY feat. The Small Faces and Peter Frampton

The desire to catch the fast-moving spirit of the times lies at the very heart of this, arguably Johnny Hallyday’s most memorable and certainly most atypical album (untitled, but knows as “Rivière” or “le bandeau”).
Originally released on Philips in 1969, Hallyday’s 14th long-player stands apart from the rest of his discography for a whole raft of reasons. Produced by Glyn Johns and with arrangements by regular writers Mick Jones and Tommy Brown, who also contribute six of the songs, it features the last ever recordings of the soon-to-split Small Faces in the company of Peter Frampton. Steve Marriott and Ronnie Lane pen three songs, Amen (aka “That Man” from The Small Faces album “In The Beginning”), Réclamation and and Regarde Pour Moi. In a matter of months, “Réclamation” and “Regarde pour moi” were re-recorded for Humble Pie’s debut album As Safe As Yesterday Is (as “Bang” and “What You Will” respectively, both credited to Marriott only on the Humble Pie album).
Mick Jones played in Nero and The Gladiators and performed in Paris alongside Vince Taylor and His Playboys before being recruited by Hallyday for his “orchestra”.  In the early seventies, Mick Jones would join Spooky Tooth and become really famous with Foreigner. Right from the opening of the anthemic Riviere… Ouvre Ton Lit, the album captures the spectacle of Hallyday caught in the head-spin of the late 60s and rocking a distinctly Anglophile blend of psychedelia, hard rock and blues. (…) as it stands, there’s already more than enough here for connoisseurs of Hallyday, The Small Faces and flamboyantly-styled late 60s exotica.
