The Zombies

Ken Barnes, Phonograph Record, June 1973

Furthermore, with two offshoots (Argent and Colin Blunstone) currently flourishing esthetically and/or commercially, and a general wave of British Invasion reassessment/nostalgia about to peak, the time is right for a look at the Zombies' checkered career.
