Tracklisting & More Information

Recorded at Abbey Road and Olympic Studios between June and November 1967, by the time of the April '68 release of Odessey And Oracle, the Zombies had effectively split-up. This obviously hampered the album's commercial breakthrough & sales were low as a result.

The sleeve on this copy remains very nice indeed. The laminate is beautifully vivid with the colours in Terry Quirk's psychedelic design remaining impactful.
The sleeve shows just a little light shelfwear with only small creases to the laminate in places & a few spots of discoulouration to the unlaminated back. Edge scuffing is low and the spine is still readable.

It is a common misconception that the mono is rarer than the stereo pressing. While the mono has become very desirable in the collectors markets, there were fewer stereo copies pressed.

The vinyl is superb and has retained its sheen. Upon close inspection, there are a couple of light surface scuffs and a small number of spindle marks around the centre hole but nothing that would impair play whatsoever.
This copy has rough centred labels with smooth perimeter.
The LP has seen very low mileage, being bought at the time of release, played just a select number of times & stored away, not seeing daylight again until now.

This is easily one of the better vinyl copies of this rare record that you are ever likely to find and the sleeve shows no more wear than you might expect after over fifty years - A gem.

Of course, the album is consistently in the top three when it comes to polls for all time classic British sixties psych records.

Highly recommended.
