Top Customer Reviews
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.Read more ›
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!
