The Zombies featuring Colin Blunstone & Rod Argent:Recorded Live in Concert at Metropolis Studios, London was such a joy to watch. Having already seen The Zombies in Chicago at Viper Alley, it was such a treat to almost relive that experience with this DVD.
The concert took place in the small Metropolis Studios in London in front of a crowd of about 100. They played 19 of their famous hits including many notable ones. Judging from seeing them in concert for the first time, then watching this, this DVD mostly reflected what I saw. After talking with Rod Argent for about an hour and a half after their show, he was probably one of the most interesting and fun people to talk to. Colin Blunstone was as well.
The boys started off the show with “I Love You.” From there, they went through a lot of their older material from their album Odessey & Oracle. The concert was a real delight with key members of the band showing off what they do best including Colin Blunstone incredibly singing his way through, Rod Argent on vocals and playing amazing keyboards, former Kinks and Argent bassist Jim Rodford, Jim’s son, Steve Rodford on drums, and the great Tom Toomey on guitar.
Some of the standout signature songs they performed included: “Care of Cell 44,” “This Will Be Our Year,” “Time of the Season,” “Tell Her No,” “Hold Your Head Up,” “She’s Not There” and “Summertime.”
Overall, this concert was another great experience of The Zombies at their best. I highly recommend this.
