Recorded between June 1970 and June 1971, the album was titled One Year (for the length of time spent making it). The initial sessions found Blunstone backed by Argent's new group, Argent, but later sessions saw the singer backed by Chris Gunning's lovely string arrangements. The first singles, "Mary Won't You Warm My Bed" and "Caroline Goodbye," flopped, but the third - a cover of Denny Laine's "Say You Don't Mind" - was a hit in Britain. Widely considered to be Blunstone's best solo album, One Year is the perfect showcase for his.

After the Zombies split in 1968, Colin Blunstone opted for the security of a 9-to-5 job and took a position with a London insurance company. However, the posthumous success of the Zombies' "Time of the Season" made a return to the music business almost inevitable. Blunstone accepted an offer from producer Mike Hurst to cut a remake of the group's first hit, "She's Not There" for Deram Records. Recorded between June 1970 and June 1971, the album was titled One Year (for the length of time spent making it).

Colin Blunstone's debut solo album "One Year" has always been a huge fan fave - its 1971 stippled effect LP sleeve and distinctive Epic Records yellow label enough to make men of a certain age go mushy. Not only did it contain the hugely popular and melodic hit single "Say You Don't Mind" (peaked at No. 15 in early 1972) - it featured more of the same - other breathy lushly orchestrated beauties that stand up to scrutiny in 2017 - 46 years after the event. Never as retro-cool as Nick Drake or commercially hip as Cat Stevens - nonetheless Colin Blunstone produced a hugely underrated album in "One Year" - something of a masterpiece in my mind (excepting that opening clunker). I just wish the CD showed that same love and affection. What we essentially have here is a 5-star singer-songwriter album from back in the day being given a 3-star CD reissue in the 90s.
