New box set w/Andy's former band Zoot Money's Big Roll Band

Last month Zoot Money's Big Roll Band released a limited edition 4 CD box set with a lot of unreleased tracks. Andy Summers (then Somers) was the guitarist in the group. The set is limited to 2000 copies and each one is singed by Zoot Money.

It includes the studio album "It Should Have Been Me," and live albums "Zoot! Live At Klook's Kleek," "Live At The Flamingo," and "Live At The BBC," plus numerous extra tracks. According the press materials, it has "a brilliantly written foreword by Andy Summers, reminiscing about the unique atmosphere of the Flamingo Club."

As far as I know, the Live at the BBC has never been released before. While the whole set is not available at itunes and Amazon digital, the BBC tracks are.

I have the Klook's Kleek and the Flamingo albums. The former is excellent, the later not so much.

I forgot to note that the box set has the title "1966 & All That/Big Time Operator."

Did Andy write any of the material?

No, I don't believe so. I lot of covers by American black artists.

Andy wrote songs on the next Zoot Money album, Transition. He co-wrote Let The Music Make You Happy and wrote the interesting instrumental Soma, which also appears in a different form on the psychedelic Chariot Rising which was the album of Dandelion's Chariot, another band with Andy and Zoot Money.

No, the box includes other 3 songs which Andy co-wrote with Zoot.

“Zoot’s Sermon” (instrumental)
“The Mound Moves” (instrumental)
“I Really Learnt How To Cry” (good song !!)

They were all B-side of the single.
