Zoot Money Big Roll Band

ZOOT MONEY BIG ROLL BAND. British R&B soul jazz group first formed in the autumn of 1961. In 1964 they started playing regularly at The Flamingo Club in Londons Soho, featuring Zoot Money's flamboyant frontman antics. They signed with Decca Records releasing a solitary single that year before switching to the Columbia label. In 1965, four more singles appeared and their first album, "It Should Have Been Me" was issued. Zoot Money then refused Alan Prices keyboard chair with The Animals on his departure from the group. The next July, "Big Time Operator" became the bands most successful single, making No25 in the UK charts. Money joined Alexis Korners Blues Inc for a short spell before rejoining the band, but fashions were drifting from straight R&B towards more experimental sounds and an emphasis on songwriting. Although a popular fixture on the London club circuit in the early to mid-1960s, The Big Roll Band had very little commercial success. In July 1967, they became Dantalians Chariot before Money accepted a renewed offer to join Eric Burdon in his reformed Animals .........
