Time Of The Season by The Zombies is one of the first songs I can remember hearing as a child, and that strange beat and smooth, almost ethereal (over an AM radio!) vocal made a lasting impression. So it was with great pleasure that I was actually able to interview the owner of that voice, Mr. Colin Blunstone, a few weeks back! As an original British Invasion artist he had many recollections of those heady days, and also talked about his solo career, and time spent with The Alan Parsons Project and the offshoot band Keats. Tune in to this week’s Prog-Watch to hear some of that interview, and a whole lot of great music by The Zombies, The APP, Keats, Colin alone, and some bloke named Neil MacArthur! (If you don’t know who this is, tune in and find out!)
527: In Conversation with Colin Blunstone of The Zombies & The Alan Parsons Project

This week I’m shaking the family tree of a favorite band from my youth…The Alan Parsons Project! We’ll be listening to some classics from the band, exploring some offshoots and forerunners, and sampling the solo work of some of the core vocalists and musicians who made up the collective. We’ll hear from the Project proper, as well as Keats, Pilot, Dave Paton, Colin Blunstone, Lenny Zakatek, and Chris Rainbow, and we’ll check out some post-Project stuff from the two founders of the Project, Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson.
