Paul Weller on ‘unsung heroes’ The Zombies

 

"It is "one of the all time greatest records", according to rock hero Paul Weller. But when The Zombies' psychedelic LP Odessey and Oracle was released in 1968, it virtually sank without trace. The band had imploded by the time of its release, and the album struggled to compete with releases by acts like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Kinks in that landmark year. But the psychedelic long player has gradually gathered fans over the years, with Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant, Dave Grohl of Nirvana and Foo Fighters and folk-rock band Fleet Foxes all emerging as big fans."
