Big Beat Records has compiled both the UK and US versions of the Zombies debut album, spiced it up with some singles, and added 4 previously unreleased gems, to end up with a 22 track wonderful introductin to the early recording career of Mr's. Bluntstone, Argent, Atkinson, White, and Grundy. For those who cannot afford the pricier (and much more extensive) 4 disc box "Zombies Heaven" then Yes, Begin Here. The tracks are filled by Bluntstone's smokey voice and Argent's tasteful keyboards. No clunkers here, by a long stretch. Worth seeking out too, is Big Beat's anniversary edition of "Odyssey and Oracle" the Zombies posthumous classic which contains the timeless "Time of the Season." "Begin Here" is a wonderful introduction to one of the most talented British bands of the mid 60s, who were somehow overlooked by the record buying public. Our loss, I assure you. Begin Here and you'll agree

Obviously the album is great. I still need more words so it played nicely and I think you should buy it if you like the Zombies.

HASH(0x9bf0d0cc) out of 5 stars Zombies - 'Begin Here' (Big Beat) June 7 2006
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Total of 22 tracks from this under-appreciated and under-rated British Invasion act. I'm seeing a couple of tunes here that either I've never heard of or I just plain don't remember. Cuts like "Road Runner", the ballad "Summertime", "She's Not There", "Remember When I Loved Her" (I've been looking for this song for a long time, used to have it as a B-side of a 45 single), "Tell Her No", "Kind Of Girl" and "Sticks And Stones". An absolute must-have.

HASH(0x9bf0d1a4) out of 5 stars First Things First Dec 15 2012
By V. Risoli - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you are beginning to become acquainted with the Zombies, then do as they suggest and "Begin Here" with this album than a "Greatest Hits" package. You will appreciate the songs more heard as they were initially intended than in a more jarring effect it is to hear their stuff taken out of context and meant as song for song than the album's total effect. Remember, the Zombies gave the Beatles the only true competitor to "Sgt. Pepper's" when they did "Odyssey and Oracle." And they are still together recording after breaking up and beginning new careers and then coming together again. "Begin Here...Plus" is a great record, an expanded reissue of their 1965 British debut. As singles, "She's Not There" and "Tell Her No" were superior many of the Beatles songs of the same period.

HASH(0x9bf0d504) out of 5 stars Begin Here 1965 What a year to start April 20 2009
By J. Chapman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Begin Here is a great album, but not in the later sense of the word.There is no higher concept and there are too many mediocre covers of old soul songs. What you also get with this album is a youthful energy and short amazingly catchy tunes that give one the essence of the mop top.

"She's not there" and "Tell her no" are known, but "I can't make up my mind","I remember when I loved her", and "I don't want to know" are rarely heard today but very satisfying. What you are getting with all these songs is high energy, yet still melodic vocals from Mr Blunstone. These interact very well with the vagely half-witted yet strangely fitting background vocals to give a youthfull energy that was perhaps unique to baby boomers coming of age. Mr.Argent's organ playing and the great transitions keep everything hopping along. No politics or drugged out guitar solos here to spoil the fun, and fun it is.

HASH(0x9bf0da20) out of 5 stars For all things Zombie? Begin here! Oct. 15 2015
By Joseph M. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
For their first album and pre-Oyssey and Oracle singles like the phenomenal masterpiece Tell Her No... THIS is a MUST BUY. Not only because this expands beyond the first British version of the album to include the other songs on the American version but the sound is OUTSTANDING!!! I am hearing details on this that I have never heard before in the masterful persuasive keyboard techniques of Rod Argent, the guitar playing of the late Paul Atkinson and everyone else. The sound is just incredible on this disc and I am glad I didn't buy the America cd version of the first album that I originally intended because of this versions superior sound quality. This is one of the best albums I have bought in ages and if you want to see a great show see these guys on the current Odyssey and Oracle tour which features 4 of the 5 originals minus Paul of course. Colin has not only retained all of his range but he is an even better singer than he was back then.

HASH(0x9bf0d2e8) out of 5 stars THE way for mono-lovers to get into early Zombies Oct. 1 2014
By Jeffrey Yutzler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This review is for "Begin Here - The Complete Decca Mono Recordings". (For whatever reason it is cataloged along with other issues of the original album.)

If you like mono sound and you think you might like this music, just buy it. You won't be disappointed. I wasn't particularly familiar with the early work of The Zombies when I did. At first I thought I made a mistake and I still give the original album only 3*. The R&B covers are not very exciting and in retrospect, they lessen the impact of the originals. (It might have made sense at the time but it doesn't hold up well today.) However, the second CD is phenomenal - all 22 tracks range from good to great. This means that the best way to listen to this material is to augment CD2 with the originals from CD1 (which when put into proper context are all quite good). It is a bit of a pain to do so but once you do, you'll join the multitudes who realized that the Zombies never got the acclaim that they deserved. And that is before they even started on Odessey and Oracle.

Instead of getting the Zombie Heaven boxed set (Zombie Heaven), I think you will get the best bang for your buck by buying either this or The Decca Stereo Anthology (The Decca Stereo Anthology) and Odessey and Oracle - the CBS Years (Odyssey & Oracle).
