Released 50 years ago, and celebrated in this new book, the Zombies' final album Odessey and Oracle is a masterpiece of '60s rock

I remember first hearing 'She’s Not There' on the radio in my bedroom. So ethereal. So spooky ... the DJ said it was The Zombies from England. 'Of course,' I thought. 'That is exactly what a zombie rock group would sound like.'” -Tom Petty
<p>To mark the 50th anniversary of the recording of their classic Odessey and Oracle album, The Zombies have assembled an eclectic collection of rare and unseen photos, original artwork and personal memories that offer readers an intimate snapshot of one of the more influential bands to emerge from the UK music scene of the 1960s.
The superbly illustrated book includes handwritten lyrics for 22 songs. From early hits “She’s Not There” and “Tell Her No,” through every song on Odessey and Oracle—including the hit single “Time of the Season” —and all the way up to today, each selection is accompanied by a running oral history by original band members Rod Argent, Colin Blunstone, Chris White and Hugh Grundy.
Renowned artist Terry Quirk, who created the look of Odessey and Oracle, designed the book’s cover and contributed new artwork throughout, while Vivienne Boucherat created a unique piece of art to accompany each of the 22 songs. Additionally, The Odessey is rich with reflections from music journalists, friends and fans, including Tom Petty, who wrote the foreword, Brian Wilson, Carlos Santana, Susanna Hoffs, Paul Weller, Graham Nash, Clive Davis, Nate Ruess of FUN and members of Cage the Elephant and Beach House.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

The Week

Colin Blunstone

Odessey and Oracle sounds like a quintessentially 1960s album, yet has a timelessness to it that makes it unique.

Modern Vinyl

Nick Spacek

Gorgeously illustrated throughout with original artwork from the original cover artist, Terry Quirk, as well as Vivienne Boucherat, who created mixed media artwork for each song.

Mojo

Phil Alexander

Odessey And Oracle - Widely proclaimed a work of genius comparable with The Beach Boysí Pet Sounds and The Beatlesí Sgt. Pepper, it is also, simultaneously somehow, a well-kept secret.

I'm Music

Lavishly illustrated with rarely seen photos from throughout the bandís career.
