No, I do not take Zombies with my Jane Austen, so you know I’m talking about the musical group of the 60s! Well, they’ve reunified for some new songs and gigs, and the fab Dawn Eden reports on their recent DC-area concert over at the Weekly Standard.

For those who didn’t see the first time around, my Rock Songbook began with four epic posts on what may be the greatest 60s album, Odessey and Oracle , especially concentrating on the hit “Time of the Season,” but also taking in the glorious “Changes,” the ambivalent “Friends of Mine,” and then settin’ down for some Platonic analysis of why it’s hard to convey wisdom in rock-song, even for a group as great as the Zombies.
