The Zombies' lead singer, Colin Blunstone, recorded several underrated albums in the '70s that deserve to be rediscovered by the same cult that has embraced Nick Drake, another fine singer/songwriter with a knack for the somber and sublime. Ennismore is Blunstone's second solo album. Much like his debut, One Year, it features collaborations with former Zombies Rod Argent and Chris White. They were working together as Argent with Russ Ballard, who here contributes the excellent opening track, "I Don't Believe in Miracles," a U.K. hit. The string arrangement for "Exclusively for Me" creates chamber folk that's simply exquisite, while "How Wrong Can One Man Be" works well with a fingerpicked acoustic guitar and fleeting strings. "Andorra" adds a Fender Rhodes for some mild funk and a clean pop sound in sync with 1973, the year of the album's release. "How Could We Dare to Be Wrong," another U.K. hit, expresses a palpable melancholy that's very much a Blunstone trademark.
