All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
This presents, in chronological sequence, both sides of all 14 of the Zombies' British singles. The Zombies were one of the most consistent British '60s bands, so it's no surprise that this is a great compilation, containing nothing mediocre and little that's even average. In addition to the three well-known hits "She's Not There," "Tell Her No," and "Time of the Season" all present, there's an abundance of gems from B-sides and flop singles: "I Must Move," "Indication," "She's Coming Home," "Gotta Get a Hold of Myself," and "Beechwood Park" are just the very best of those. However, the absence of the great U.S.-only 1965 single "I Want You Back Again"/"I Remember ...

However, the absence of the great U.S.-only 1965 single "I Want You Back Again"/"I Remember When I Loved Her" and, to a lesser degree, some standout LP-only tracks particularly "Changes" from Odessey & Oracle prevents this from being the definitive single-disc best-of.

    Zombies Collection Connects

    The Zombies are one band that definitely flamed out long before their time. Their greatest fame came after they had already broken up. It's sad to know that the Zombies broke up in December of 1967, mainly due to the fact that its members thought they were not widely accepted, especially in their homeland, the U.K.. This compilation of their hits gives a good reading of just what made the Zombies so special. Time Of The Season, She's Not There and Tell Her No are the three most familiar charts here, but there are other offerings that show the wide range of the Zombies' talents. Woman is a bluesy tune that could easily pass for an early Animals release. Vocalist Colin Blunstone is vulnerable in his understated readings of The Way I Feel Inside and How We Were Before. Whenever You're Ready, Indication and She Does Everything For Me are all great rockers, and one wonders why these songs didn't chart higher for the group. Beechwood Park sounds like it came right out of San Francisco's Summer of Love in 1967, with its trippy laid-back allure. Conversation Off Floral Street shows keyboard man Rod Argent at his finest, in pure instrumental mode. Blunstone's vocals and Argent's organ work place the trademark stamp on the Zombies authentic 1960's British sound. This is a good place to hear it!
