"For those that love the blend of Baroque sounds with psychedelic pop of the late 60's, this is the perfect album for you. Amazing that this album isn't more known. Thanks to Amazon for helping me find this hidden gem. Though "Time of the Season" is their big hit on this album, there is a whole lot more great songs here. There are no fillers on this cd. My favorites include "Care of Cell 44", "Maybe After He's Gone", "Brief Candles", Friends of Mine, A Rose For Emily, and my favorite being "Hung Up On a Dream." Other great albums I think you would like include anything from the Beatles starting from "Rubber Soul", Beach Boys "Pet Sounds", Moody Blues "Days of Future Passed", Pink Floyd "Piper at the Gates of Dawn", Bee Gees "Odessa", The Left Banke "There's Gonna Be a Storm: The Complete Recordings 1966-69", Camel "The Snow Goose", King Crimson "In the Court of the Crimson King", The Kinks "Village Green..." Koyaanisqatsy "From the Yearning..." And Procol Harum's self-titled debut. Any suggestions for other great hidden gems would be appreciated."
If You Love Music from the 60's

"Odessey and Oracle is purely great music. It's been a long time since I've listened to any of the Zombies (except the hits) for a very long time. This music stands up brilliantly and I really love it. I bought the original as well as the 40th Anniversary album. No question, the Zombies are Groovy!!!!"
Fantastic music, fantastic sleeve

"If you like Beach Boys and want to discover a truly hidden gem of the end sixties, beginning seventies than you really have to listen to this one, a combi of their master album and never before released follow up material. As a bonus a wonderful digipack with very psychedelic sleeve-design."
