And while I am on a post-Zombies kick, how about the opening track from Colin Blunstone's first solo LP "One Year". Yep, that unmistakable Zombies sound is here, and no wonder as the song was written by Rod Argent and Chris White, the Z's principal songwriters and the men responsible for "Odessey and Oracle". For my money Colin's soft wispy voice was a key ingredient to the miraculous sound of his former band. His first solo album is a extremely fine work, full of fine piano pop as well as some gorgeous acoustic ballads. In fact he had a #15 hit in the UK with "Say You Don't Mind" from this LP, a bouncy piece of early 70's pop written by ex-Moody Blues/future-Wings guitarist Denny Laine.
So here is "She Loves The Way They Love Her", which is also available in a post-Zombies version sung by Rod Argent. Though Colin's take is the better of the two, with his tenor voice rising high and clear, and a killer production by Rod and Chris with an excellent electric guitar counter melody throughout.
