At Work (N' Play) The Zombies


Psych / Garage
Big Beat
Catalogue Id:

Limited edition of 1500.

Big Beat’s exhaustive Zombies reissue campaign of the last 12 years has achieved what it set out to do: restore to world-class status the catalogue of this most singular of pop groups. In the course of our ongoing archival research, many previously unheard Zombies songs and performances have come to light, and have been included on our numerous CD releases, including the acclaimed box set “Zombie Heaven”. Subsequently, there have been numerous requests from fans to have these rare tracks also made available on vinyl.

Big Beat now presents the best of the Zombies’ originally unissued 1960s recordings on a set of six themed, limited edition vinyl EPs – mirroring the venerable, collectable format of the period – and resplendent in authentically-styled, eye-catching sleeves. As a special bonus, four of the six EPs contain vintage Zombies recordings that have not been released anywhere until now – a boon for both collectors and fans.

In this month’s batch are “Zombies R&B”, “Zombies A Go Go” and “Zombies At Work (N’ Play)”. All tracks have not previously appeared on vinyl, and the completely unreleased tracks are rare demo versions of ‘Sometimes’ and ‘It’s Alright With Me’, the latter from the band’s very first recording session.
