Zoot Money's aptly titled third album found him indeed making a transition, if a little awkwardly, from the jazzy R&B with which he'd started to something a bit more sophisticated and ambitious. While hardly a psychedelic LP, it did reflect the changing times of the mid- to late '60s in British pop, especially in what was by far the most unusual track, the Andy Summers-penned instrumental "Soma," with its druggy drift and sitar. For the most part, however, the set was more in the jazz-soul-pop bag, Summers also making his presence known as co-writer of a couple of other tunes ("Let the Music Make You Happy" and "Stop the Wedding") with Money.
