AllMusic Review by

Since so many budget-priced compilations of hits from the '60s feature inferior recent re-recordings, the title of Tranluxe's GREATEST HITS, GREATEST RECORDINGS series of reissues is a welcome indicator of quality. Featuring high-quality remasters of the original recordings, this 14-track compilation focuses primarily on the many singles the Zombies released between their two albums, 1964's BEGIN HERE and 1968's classic ODESSEY AND ORACLE. Besides classics like "She's Not There," "Tell Her No" and "Time of the Season," GREATEST HITS, GREATEST RECORDINGS also features lesser-known gems like "I Love You," "I Want You Back Again" and the jazz-influenced quintet's amazing rendition of George and Ira Gershwin's "Summertime." The compilation concludes with a nice bonus--a lengthy and informative interview with Zombies keyboardist Rod Argent.
