Fabulous! This collection of material from The Zombies is a must-have if you're interested in their music. Every song you need is in this collection; all the songs you know are on discs 1 and 2, a lot of raw studio stuff is on disc 3 , and- since The Zombies were absolutely solid live- you must listen to the 4th disc Live at the BBC. Included in the box set is a really informative and fun 60+ page booklet with pictures and interviews with the band members. I came across Zombie Heaven when I was looking for a Zombies CD that had all the songs I knew plus maybe some b-sides, and there are a lot of "best of" or singles compilations out there. What really made me decide to spend the extra money and purchase Zombie Heaven was when I was considering ordering The Zombies' Live at the BBC CD plus another singles CD, but I then realized that since the box set has the Live at the BBC disc in its entirety as disc 4 as well as every Zombies song I'd ever hear prior, Zombie Heaven would suit all my needs. In The Studio, disc 3, has a lot of studio "chatter", and it's fun to hear the guys speak and work-out technical and vocal issues. Lastly, some of the songs and info in Zombie Heaven has already led me to other members' post-Zombie music. For example, Argent's version of She Loves the Way They Love Her is on disc 2, and is good, but I then listened to Colin's version on his album One Year- which I like a lot better. So, if you like the music of The Zombies, look no further and just buy Zombie Heaven. Also, if you enjoyed The Beatles Anthology, you'd probably enjoy Zombie Heaven as well.Was this review helpful?
