Four singles were released from Odessey and Oracle: Friends of Mine, Care of Cell 44, Time of the Season and Butcher’s Tale (Western Front 1914)

Album · 1968 · 12 Songs. Although 1968's Odessey and Oracle was released after The Zombies split, its lush and complex sound cemented the group's legacy for generations to come. It's easily among the finest examples of British psychedelic pop, draped in baroque orchestral arrangements, innovative Mellotron, layered harmonies, and Colin Blunstone's soft, breathy vocals.

Ironically, at the time of its recording in the summer of 1967, permanency was not much on the minds of the bandmembers. Odessey and Oracle was intended as a final statement, a bold last hurrah, having worked hard for three years only to see the quality of their gigs decline as the hits stopped coming.

Odessey and Oracle was the result of frustration. Toiling for years with very little commercial success to speak of and their current recording contract long past expiration, primary songwriters Rod Argent and Chris White sought a new beginning. With this in mind, Argent and White went out to create a cohesive album. Up until Odessey and Oracle, the Zombies had released a pair of LPs. These, for the most part, were collections of singles rather than actual albums.
