Song Of The Day: The Zombies – “I Want You Back Again” (2015)

On this day in 1997, the original members of The Zombies reunited on stage for the first time in 30 years in a concert at London’s Jazz Café. This was a band with perhaps the worst sense of career timing in Rock History, and it was a concert that should have happened 28 years sooner. The Zombies gave up on the band – and on each other – in 1968, but had they waited just one year later they might have capitalized on the surprise smash-hit success of their album Odessey And Oracle, and who knows how the 1970s would have unfolded differently for them. Today they’re fixtures on the nostalgia circuit, but this reworking of their 1966 track shows they’ve still got some chops, especially the still-outstanding piano work of Rod Argent.
