MP3: Download an Outstanding Zombies Concert from 10/8

Zombies crop

Show is stuffed with longtime faves, including some classic Argent.

By Uncle Blurt

One of the recent BLURT features that we’re deeply proud of is Dave Steinfeld’s excellent Zombies feature (“Nice Guys Finish First,” featuring in-depth conversations with Rod Argent and Colin Blunstone. One suspects that the story, along with John Moore’s recent review of the band’s Philly show, pretty effectively paints us here at the BLURT yacht as hardcore Zombies fans, eh?

So getting ahold of this free download of the band’s Oct. 8 show in D.C. is quite a treat, needless to say. Originally broadcast over WAMU-FM, it was digitized and subsequently posted as MP3s along with downloadable artwork by Big O zine.

MP3: The Zombies – Lincoln Theatre, Washington D.C. Oct. 8, 2015

It is, in a word, brilliant-sounding, and not only does it feature the entirety of the Odessey and Oracle album performed, there are also plenty of choice nuggets no matter what era of the band you are into, from “She’s Not There” and “Tell Her No” to a medley of “You Really Got A Hold On Me” and “Bring It On Home To Me” and yours truly’s personal fave, “I Love You” (which of course was also turned into a hit back in the day by Larry Norman’s outfit The People). All that and a friggin’ 9-minute version of Argent’s “Hold Your Head Up”? Good grief, Charlie Brown, this is seriously pinch-me stuff. The full tracklisting is below.
