Odessey & Oracle

HALF SPEED MASTERING AT THE LEGENDARY ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS FROM HD 24 BIT AUDIO.

In glorious original Stereo sound by Jon Astley (who has worked on recordings by the Who, Led Zeppelin, George Harrison and many others).

180g VINYL.

LP COVER WITH CUSTOM REPLICA RETRO FINISH: 2-part construction, all round custom ‘vintage’ finish, laminated front & ‘crushed’ spine.

Our ’vintage‘ packages are bespoke and original, and perfectly replicate the LPs from the 1960s period, with exceptional scanning, detailed reproduction of artwork and printing to original specifications.

This LP is faithfully replicated to look like it has survived the decades (only with a newly remastered crackle-free LP within!)

Recorded at EMI’s Abbey Road studios in 1967 during the final months of the original group’s career, this masterpiece yielded their last great hit ‘Time Of The Season’, but was destined for release after the Zombies had broken up.

It is the British pop group’s all-time classic ‘concept’ album, now available on both stereo or mono LPs. All serious ‘completist’ record collectors and Zombies fans will want to savour a work that has been the subject of a huge revival of interest. Listen and you’ll know why American A&R man Al Kooper insisted that Columbia put out the album, when it was in danger of being overlooked!

Features all the original 12 stereo tracks –no fillers, no ‘alternative’ versions – just as originally intended on the initial LP release, back in the groovy 60s Summer of Love.
