5.0 out of 5 stars Zombies beauties remixed, 10 Dec 2010
This review is from: Time of the Season [7" VINYL] (Vinyl)
It must have been hard for Zombies compiler Alec Palao to come up with anything original for the recent batch of vinyl EP releases. I mean, only look at their back catalogue, Greg Russo in his excellent Collector's Guide mentions 63 different albums released in the UK alone! There are simply no more outtakes, no matter how much dedicated fans would be willing to pay for such hidden treasures.
So he had to make do with two unreleased mono-mixes of Time of the Season and A Rose for Emily, but both presented here in alternative versions: continued drumming where the accepted version has silence, and a cello which was later left out in the official version. Again, we've heard these alternatives before, but only in stereo. You might say: well, big deal, but then turn to side B, which has new stereo mixes of two other favourites, Care of Cell 44 and Hung Up On a Dream. Beautifully done, especially the vocals seem to sound fresher than before.
You do need a good record player, though, which can handle these 33 1/3 rpm EPs.
