During World War 2, a small plane off the south coast of America is low on fuel and blown off course by a storm. Guided by a faint radio signal, they crashland on an island. The passenger, his manservant and the pilot take refuge in a mansion owned by a doctor. The easily-spooked manservant soon becomes convinced the mansion is haunted by zombies and ghosts. Exploring, the 3 find a voodoo ritual in the cellar, where the doctor is trying to acquire war intelligence by transferring personalities into his zombies. But the interruption causes the zombies to turn on their creator.
This is the first legitimate release of the never issued Zombies R.I.P. album as it was intended in the United States, in the original running order and from the correct master mixes. As a bonus, three original mono 45 mixes are also collected here (the mono single mix of ''Don't Cry For Me'' has, in fact, never appeared previously on CD), alongside a previously unheard mono mix of 'Smokey Day'.
As Far As I Can See… is the fourth studio album by the British rock band the Zombies, and their first since 1991. Billed as "The Zombies" but it's actually Blunstone and Argent again. Joining Blunstone and Argent in the studio for As Far As I Can See… was a band that consisted of longtime friend Jim Rodford, his son Steve, and guitarist Keith Airey. Original Zombie member Chris White contributed also background vocals and Paul Atkinson championed the album shortly before his death from liver and kidney.
