Argent: All Together Now

Jon Tiven, Rolling Stone, 20 July 1972

THE ZOMBIES/ARGENT relationship is very close, much like that of the Small Faces/Humble Pie or the Yardbirds/Led Zeppelin. In each case a group splits due to musical stagnation, and the key member carries on in a similar vein with a few improvements and embellishments. Argent is led by Zombie keyboard man Rod Argent, who receives first-class help from musical aces Russ Ballard (lead guitar), Robert Henrit (drums), and Jim Rodford (bass guitar). Chris White (former bassist with the Zombies) acts as co-producer/co-writer with his longtime musical ally from 'She's Not There' days, and is as much a member of Argent as Felix Pappalardi was of Cream.
