Colin Blunstone

Live at The Borderline, Soho


Colin Blunstone was born in Hatfield, Hertfordshire on the 24th June 1945. He went to school in St Albans where he was introduced to the other members of The Zombies. After attracting a large local following, the band were offered a recording contract by Decca Records which resulted in their first single, ‘She’s Not There’ becoming a world-wide hit. Three years on the road culminated in The Zombies final album the acclaimed ‘Odessey and Oracle’.
After a short break, Colin’s solo career began in earnest with ‘One Year’ on Epic Records, from which the hit single ‘Say You Don’t’ Mind’ was taken. Two more albums on Epic followed, ‘Ennismore’ and ‘Journey’ which spawned the hits, ‘I Don’t Believe In Miracles’ and ‘How Can We Dare To Be Wrong’.
This was followed by a spell living in California where he signed for Elton John’s label, Rocket Records and released three critically acclaimed albums, ‘Planes’, ‘Never Even thought’ and ‘Late Nights in Soho’.
Returning to the UK, Colin supplied the vocals for Dave Stewart’s hit version of ‘What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted’ followed by further hits with Smokey Robinson’s ‘Tracks Of My Tears’ and The Alan Parson’s Project’s ‘Old And Wise’.
These tracks were followed by three further albums, ‘Greatest Hits’, ‘Echo Bridge’ and ‘The Light Inside’, before Colin decided the time was right to play live again where he was joined by fellow Zombies founder member, Rod Argent. Together they have recorded three studio albums, ‘Out Of The Shadows’ and ‘As Far As I Can See’, a live double album and DVD, ‘Live At The Bloomsbury Theatre’ and a live album and DVD, ‘Odessey And Oracle {Revisited} 40th Anniversary’, of their sold-out concerts at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire in 2008.
‘The Ghost of You and Me’, was his first solo album in ten years, Colin wrote five new songs for it and renewed his partnership with producer Jon Sweet and arranger Chris Gunning. In February 2009, Colin Blunstone toured the UK with his own band bringing ‘The Ghost Of You And Me’ album to a live audience around the record’s release.
