Odessey & Oracle

180g VINYL + HALF SPEED MASTERING

Our collectable vinyl re-issues are as close as possible to the original LPs.

The LPs are mastered at Half Speed at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, then pressed onto 180g vinyl, offering the listener the best ever sounding version of the album.

The recordings are remastered by Jon Astley (The Who, Led Zeppelin, George Harrison & many others).

The sleeves are printed from superior quality scans with detailed reproduction artwork.

Recorded at EMI’s Abbey Road Studios in 1967 during the final months of the original group’s career, this British Psych-pop masterpiece yielded their last great hit ‘Time Of The Season’, but was destined for release after the Zombies had first broken up. It is the British pop group’s all-time classic ‘concept’ album.

To find an original mint Mono copy involves a long wait and a budget of around £1,000+ to land one. The Stereo version is not far behind either. But we have returned to Abbey Road for our re-issue versions, a more affordable option, now available again in either Stereo or Mono LPs.

All serious record collectors will savour a work that has been the subject of a huge revival of interest. Listen and you will know why American songwriter, producer and musician Al Kooper insisted that Columbia put out the album in the USA, when it was in danger of being overlooked.
