The Zombies are a British pop group, first active in the 1960s. Following The Beatles in 1964 as part of "The British Invasion" of the USA, they were the second UK group to score an American #1 hit. The Zombies were uniquely different, with a subtler style, often jazzier and more inventive chord structures, the prominent keyboards of Rod Argent, and the distinctive voice of Colin Blunstone. She's Not There and Tell Her No were quick hits, but despite continually stunning musical output that has influenced other artists ever since, another hit record was more than four years away, after they'd broken up! This collection, remastered for SACD, covers the Zombies' short and tasteful career, spanning their 1964-1967 years for Decca Records, and their single album, the classic Odessey & Oracle, for Epic Records in 1968…
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.
'Zombie Heaven' is a 1997 four-disc box set comprising roughly the entire catalog of British invasion band The Zombies. The first disc comprises their debut Begin Here and assorted singles. The second disc features their sophomore effort Odessey and Oracle and the unreleased album R.I.P.. Disc 3 is composed of rare and unissued recordings, including demos and alternate takes, while the fourth disc collects live recordings from the band's appearance on the BBC.
