Re: The Yardbirds vs. The Zombies

I've been skipping this thread until now, because I just can't decide. Still can't.

I really respect the Yardbirds, and I love a lot of their stuff. I probably love about the same number of songs by each group, really. There's not a single Yardbirds album that I consider indispensible, but as a part of the development of psychedelia and classic rock in general, I certainly consider their work indispensible as a whole.

I consider Odyssey and Oracle an indispensible psychedelic era album.

I don't think I can vote in this poll. These bands are equals for me.

Re: The Yardbirds vs. The Zombies

I didn't expect Zombies to be winning this one by quite a margin. I thought this would be a very close poll, 'cause these bands are actually very close for me.

I'm surprised by that as well...especially considering that the Yardbirds are a direct link right into Led Zeppelin.

Re: The Yardbirds vs. The Zombies

I finally made my mind up and voted for the Yardbirds. I think their long-term influence is a lot weightier. But it was very close with me.

Re: The Yardbirds vs. The Zombies

Two totally different stylistic bands . I like them both but the Yardbirds get the edge .

Re: The Yardbirds vs. The Zombies

Zombies for me, too. Main argument: they wrote most of their own songs and most of those have proved to be timeless treasures.

Re: The Yardbirds vs. The Zombies

Two great bands.

But the Yardbirds sounded like nobody else in the mid-sixties. For me, they are one of the most influencial bands of their time.

Re: The Yardbirds vs. The Zombies

for now its the Yardbirds for me....but i need to give ODyssey & Oracle more of a chance. I have the album and it hasnt blown me away yet like a was expecting, but need to give it more time so my vote could potentially change.
For now For your love, Heart Full of Soul, etc wins over
