Biography

Biography by Richie Unterberger

Aside from the Beatles and perhaps the Beach Boys, no mid-'60s rock group wrote melodies as gorgeous as those of the Zombies. Dominated by Colin Blunstone's breathy vocals, choral backup harmonies, and Rod Argent's shining jazz- and classical-influenced organ and piano, the band sounded utterly unique for their era. Indeed, their material -- ... Read more in Amazon's The Zombies Store

5.0 out of 5 stars This is Zombie Heaven!! 17 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
The Zombies were one of the most talented British bands of the 1960's. You could say that this band had it all: Two prolific songwriters, two outstanding singers and four great musicians.

This 4 CD box contains all their released material ( singles, EP's, albums etc. ) + a vast amount of rarities; demos, outtakes, alternate takes and live recordings.

Most of their original output is well-known, and the majority of it is simply outstanding.

They only released two albums in their time. Their first. "Begin Here" is an uneven mixture of rhythm'n blues standards and Zombies originals.

Their covers of songs like "I Got My Mojo" and "Roadrunner" I have always thought their weakest output. Their vocals simply do not fit the r&b style. But apart from these few exceptions, all their released material is first class.

Unfortunately their success in the singles charts was short-lived; even though they released great singles throughout their career. They experienced an unexpected come-back in 1969 with "Time of the Season", but this was at a time, when they had practically split-up.

Their second ( and last released ) album "Odessey and Oracle" is considered a rock-classic - which is very well-deserved.

A third album was planned for release, to cash in on the success of "Time of the Season", but this album called "R.I.P" was unfortunately never released. All tracks from this abandoned album are also included on "Zombie Heaven".

Try to programme your CD player and hear how it would have sounded. Personally I think it comes very close to the high level of "Odessey and Oracle"

CD 1 contains their first album and early singles.

CD 2 contains "Odessey and Oracle" and "R.I.P" + a few alternate version.

5.0 out of 5 stars If this is heaven, please let me go there 17 Jun 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you are contemplating buying this, you must already be a Zombies fans. So all I need to say is this is a lovingly compiled set of everything the Zombies ever did, complete with out-takes and alternative versions. A real must.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most under-rated band of the 60s 22 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
At last the Zombies music is allowed to be heard for what it is -a collection of unique and distinctive songs which are up there with the best of 60s pop. As the previous reviewer states, you're probably already a Zombies fan if you own it - but even if you're a fan of the more melodic side of that era, you should still treat yourself. There are so many songs on here that should be better known - and several should have been hits in their time. Unfortunately, their story is a familiar one - as the excellent accompanying booklet states - that of the great band undone by bad management and a record company which had no idea how to promote and nurture them. Sad stuff and the music is a constant reminder of what might have been. Buy this and discover a band for whom long-overdue respect is growing all the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can you remember the Sixties? 5 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
Well, if you can, you were not there, an old saying goes.
The Zombies' songs probably capture those days' mood better than anyone else's (I mean the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Who, the Kinks...); thanks to their superlative arrangements they stretch to the edge the common notion of "Sixties beat".
You can call me crazy, but if I should own just a 60s record, this would be my choice!

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Recommended in one of the Sunday papers. A good deal for this collection of CDs. Old sound but very good and probably worth buying.
