However unfairly, `60s pop act The Zombies have long been something of an afterthought when compared to their more astronomically famous British counterparts, The Beatles. But The Beatles were actually admirers of the group, which is understandable given that The Zombies’ vocal harmonies were just as complex. Luckily, a slow revisionist movement has helped sustain The Zombies’ credibility, along with the unparalleled ability to sing just like they did five decades ago. Since the band had a rather gentle approach to the microphone, their songbird capabilities are still intact, when compared to other more brash groups of the era. But don’t dismiss them as a simply lily-white British pop band. It might be blasphemy, but this critic finds their version of the Motown classic, “This Old Heart of Mine (Is Weak for You),” to be the definitive cover.
