Repertoire Records will issue an 81 track, four-CD compilation called The Zombies In Stereo on 23 September 2013.
The box set is an apparently comprehensive exploration of the English rock band’s stereo recording history, from the 1964-1967 period with all the initial true and fake stereo versions released at the time, right through to the very latest remixes from the master tapes of those original recordings. Below gives you an idea what to expect from each disc in the four-disc set.
