Colin Blunstone Backstage

Colin Blunstone plays "BACKSTAGE" at the Green Hotel, Kinross on Saturday 12th Feb 2011

Colin Blunstone is one of Britain's most respected and popular vocalists. With a very distinctive breathy voice, managing to be both sweet and strong, he was the lead vocalist with the highly successful and influential Zombies in the early 60s. The Zombies were one of the bands to 'break' America in the wake of Beatlemania, and in their relatively short existence produced some great material - She's Not There, Time Of The Season, Tell Her No and the critically-acclaimed album Odyssey and Oracle. When the 60s ended, Colin enjoyed a solo career with equal success and several further hit singles and albums. He has remained friends with ex-Zombies and collaborated on a number of ventures over the years.

His solo album, The Ghost of You And Me was released in the UK, Benelux and Scandinavia on 9 March 2009. Blunstone completed a twelve date UK tour, his first in several years. He continues to tour with Rod Argent as The Zombies, and the original surviving members of The Zombies played four reunion concerts performing Odessey and Oracle, in April 2009.

In 2010, Sony released Colin Blunstone Original Album Classics, a 3-disc boxed set featuring digitally re-mastered versions of Blunstone's solo albums, One Year, Journey and Ennismore. The collection also includes two bonus tracks that were originally released as non-LP b-sides in UK.
