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!Was this review helpful?
