The Zombies - Odessey And Oracle

  • The Zombies

    Odessey And Oracle LP (1968)

    Date

Ranked #179 in the Soul Strut 200

Gorgeous slice of late 60s psychedelic pop from the Zombies.  This is another one of those epic opuses that flopped prompting the band to break up only to enjoy cult like success in later years.  Actually, their Vietnam anthem "Time of the Season" became a smash just a couple years after the band called it quits.   Odessey And Oracle has been dubbed the British Pet Sounds by music enthusiasts later championed by the Wes Anderson hipster crowd and with crate diggers here on Soul Strut ("Beechwood Park", anyone?).
