Odessey and Oracle (Mono Vinyl LP)

Odessey and Oracle (Mono Vinyl LP)

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, and was 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 will understand 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 12 ORIGINAL MONO tracks – no ‘alternative’ versions, no fillers – just as originally intended on the initial LP release, back in the groovy 1960s.

Expertly remastered for LP. Half-Speed mastered at Abbey Road Studios. Top quality reproduction - superb sound. 180g vinyl.
