Just Zoot Re-Release
In keeping with the 50th Anniversary of the formation of Zoot, the band are proud to present this very special pressing of their 1970 album ‘Just Zoot’ on luscious 180gm Baby Pink Vinyl!
Featuring the tracks ‘1 Times, 2 Times Three Times Four’, ‘Monty & Me’ and ‘About Time’ – this pressing of the now legendary album is mastered for vinyl by Don Bartley at Benchmark Mastering and pressed on Baby Pink Vinyl – in keeping with Zoot’s ‘think pink – think Zoot’ marketing campaign around the time of the release of the album.
This vinyl pressing is sure to become a collectors item from the band that proved to be hugely influential to many artists in their wake – and would go on to become the ultimate ‘reverse supergroup’; having boasted members Beeb Birtles, Rick Springfield, Darryl Cotton and Rick Brewer.

Zoot – Life In A Northern Town
EMI released Archaeology on 23 November 2018. “EMI signed a very young and naïve ZOOT back in 1968,” founding member Beeb Birtles says. “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 includes a new recording of ‘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.”
