The Zombies – Odessey and Oracle
My friend, Ian La Frenais, gave me that, a cassette of it. He goes, "bet you haven’t heard this for a few years" because he’d found it in his drawer. And he gave to me and I played it for months, it must have been. I just loved all the songs on it. I love Colin Blunstone’s voice on it. And lovely, crafted songs. Great harmonies, what more could you want? I love The Zombies. This strikes me as lovely all the way through.
