The tale of R.I.P. has been told in several places, not the least in the booklet of this well-assembled reissue from Varese Sarabande. In short: conceptualized in the wake of the unexpected success of "Time of the Season," R.I.P. is about half overdubbed Zombies leftovers and half songs from Argent-in-all-but-name. The project as put together never came out at the time, although dribs and drabs surfaced before the mass of tracks were released on the pathbreaking "Time of the Zombies" LP compilation in 1974. The remainder finally showed up as of 1984's "Best and the Rest of the Zombies."
