Had a request from Quah, Seng-Sun for some Zoot this a complation put together by old mate micko over on the Midoztouch forum and contains just about everything a Zoot fan could want 26 tracks in fact.
Zoot are a pop/rock band formed in Adelaide, South Australia in 1965 as Down the Line.They changed their name to Zoot in 1967 and by 1968 had relocated to Melbourne. They had a top five hit on the Go-Set national singles chart with a heavy rock cover of The Beatles' ballad "Eleanor Rigby" released in 1970 but they disbanded in May 1971.
Mainstay bass guitarist, Beeb Birtles, was later a founder of Little River Band in 1975 and guitarist singer-songwriter, Rick Springfield, who moved to the United States in 1972, achieved international fame as a solo artist, songwriter and actor.
Zoot will reunite for the Rick Springfield and Friends cruise in November 2011.

Here Comes September/Mud/New Technology (live)/Here Comes September (demo)
Waikiki were a rock group from Sydney, Australia, consisting of sister and brother Juanita Stein (bass/vocals) and Joel Stein (guitar/vocals), and Glenn Moule (drums) and Jimmy (or Jimmeh) Brandon (guitar). A new bass player Brendan Picchio joined the band in early 2003, replacing Brandon, with Juanita Stein moving from bass to rhythm guitar. In August 2003, Joel Stein explained the impact Picchio had made on the group. He told Radio Adelaide's Hermione Gilchrist that the new bassist was "the missing piece to the puzzle", adding, "he's what we've been looking for since we started."
In early 2004 the group disbanded, moved to London and re-formed as Howling Bells.
Waikiki released one album, I'm Already Home, in 2002. Their single, "Here Comes September", placed 36th on the 2002 Triple J Hottest 100 poll. They released three further singles and a five-track EP.
