British Invasion rockers the Zombies may be best known for their pop singles “She’s Not There,” “Tell Her No,” and “Time of the Season,” but their second album, Odessey and Oracle, now a favorite among rock critics, has helped the group sustain its reputation nearly half a century after its release. Now, for the first time in America, the surviving original band members who recorded that psychedelic pop touchstone will perform it live onstage. While the catchy “Time of the Season” appears on Odessey, the remaining tracks sound more subtle, with singer Colin Blunstone’s breathy, melodic vocals carrying over the band’s choral harmonies and keyboardist Rod Argent providing classically influenced instrumentation.
