An absolute "must-have" for anyone who loves The Zombies' so
Midwest Book Review | Oregon, WI USA | 12/12/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Dedicated to the late, great fifth member of the The Zombies (Paul Atkinson 1946-2004), The Zombies: Odessey & Oracle Revisited is a DVD of the 40th anniversary reunion concert of the original four members of "The Zombies" band (Rod Argent, Colin Blunstone, Christ White & Hugh Grundy), as performed at the Shepherd's Bush Empire in London, March of 2008. The Zombies perform their complete "Odessey & Oracle" album - all 12 tracks are recreated, sung and played with pure passion. Also included are the rest of the songs played by The Zombies' Touring Band that night, from songs that The Zombies and Argent made famous to selections from Colin Blunstone's solo albums. A glorious celebration of music, The Zombies: Odessey & Oracle Revisited is an absolute "must-have" for anyone who loves The Zombies' songs. 121 minutes.
Classic minor jazz mood group preforms its best album live!

"When I was young in the mid 60's and in a "band" there were three great bands that gave my friends music to inspire. The first was the beatles for starting it all, the second was the Byrds for combining folk and rock, and the third was the Zombies for thier fusion of jazz and rock in a very minor key. Chris White and his group, most notably colin Blundstone on wisper vocals had two monster hits for themselves in Tell Her No and She's Not There. The rest of their work never reached the public notice it deserved and so in '68 they produced one last album, Odessey and Oracle. That was their masterpiece! They even had one more hit from it - Time of the Season. Amazing becasue it broke after the band had given up, broken up and moved on to other things. Now forty years latter the surving members have reformed and recreated the album, along with several of the best of their body of songs for this DVD. Featuring a well played string group to "add" to the note perfect recreation we can enjoy this wondeful work again as now "well aged" creators again ply their trade. Very well worth the purchase!!"

"I have seen the Zombies live several times and this DVD captures them perfectly. Finally having a live document of "Odessey and Oracle" is a treasure that was worth the wait. The production quality of both sound and video is amazing. This is without a doubt the best concert video I have ever seen."
Can I give it 10 stars?!!

"I just watched this yesterday and I was completely blown away. It was truly an emotional experience. Rod Argent really outdid himself putting this together. To hear that album performed live from beginning to end was breathtaking. Colin Blunstone did 3 numbers backed by only a string quintet (in the first set), and that was mesmerizing as well. Even if you're only slightly familiar with the album, get this DVD and prepare yourself for the musical treat of a lifetime."
