Odessey and Oracle by The Zombies

Hello Friends, today we're taking a journey to London with The Zombies' outstanding LP 'Odessey and Oracle', recorded at Abbey Road Studios in 1967, and released in 1968. Funded by the band themselves, they only initially delivered a mono mix to CBS, who would then demand that they fund and mix a stereo version of the album. These two mixes will be our focus today, as well as the Stereo Remix of 'This Will be Our Year', only originally issued in mono and artificial stereo in 1968. So, don't get Hung Up on A Dream, it truly is the Time of the Season to break down both these mixes, and truly find out which is better.

Happy Listening, 

Frederick
