Title - 'Live at the Bloomsbury Theatre, London'
Artist - The Zombies
Captured live in the West End of London at the famed Bloomsbury Theatre, man does this late 2005 concert bring the musical memory house down! Packed solid with an empeccably recorded program of timeless Zombie hits, Argent classics, solo Blunstone gems, and more, 'Live at the Bloomsbury Theatre, London' is one hell of either a flashback or introduction to one of the greatest, most musically inventive bands of the '60s.
After an incredible four decades later and both Blunstone and Argent are as vocally spot on as they ever were. Brought to the fore are 'updated' versions of "This Will Be Our Year," "A Rose for Emily," "Beechwood Park," "Care of Cell 44," and "Time of the Season." I simply cannot tell you how this live reunion of the two founding members was so worth the effort!
Though no other Zombie was aboard for the project (including underrated guitarist/vocalist Chris White), Argent's burning keyboards, Blunstone's inimitable voice, and skilled backing musicians assure that the entire band receives its due. Also included are Odessey selections and nuggets from the singles collection, including Argent's "Tell Her No" and "Indication," Blunstone's "Just Out of Reach" and "What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted" (a HUGE personal fav of mine!), and White's "I Love You."
