Now that the Yardbird's singles have been covered I am feeling a Zombies mood coming on. Here is their great August 1965 single that sank like a stone - Whenever You're Ready. The bridge section - "you're not teaching me a new thing" - between the verse and the chorus is a thing of beauty. Rod Argent was such an excellent songsmith, and of course Colin Blunstone was the perfect singer for his songs. The b-side was the excellent I Love You, which unfortunately was a hit for another band - People. The Zombies were sadly always in the wrong place at the wrong time. For me though their music holds up and is nearly equal in quality to the Kinks and the Beatles when it comes to the 60s.
