Odessey and Oracle is the second studio album by English rock band the Zombies. It was originally released in the UK in April 1968 by CBS Records. The album was recorded over a period of three months between June and August 1967. The sessions that took place at Abbey Road Studios and Olympic Studios in London. It was received indifferently on release. A single from the album "Time of the Season" later became a surprise hit in the United States in early 1969.

Odessey and Oracle was one of the flukiest (and best) albums of the 1960s, and one of the most enduring long players to come out of the entire British psychedelic boom, mixing trippy melodies, ornate choruses, and lush Mellotron sounds with a solid hard rock base. But it was overlooked completely in England and barely got out in America (with a big push by Al Kooper, who was then a Columbia Records producer); and it was neglected in the . until the single "Time of the Season," culled from the album, topped the charts nearly two years after it was recorded, by which time the group.

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

I purchased it because I love the Zombies and this album so much but this release was pretty much an okay release. Hopefully the book about the making of the album isn't a let down as well. 8 people found this helpful.
