Product Description

Product Description

Two US Imperial label albums from 1966. 'Bus Stop' and 'Stop! Stop! Stop!' were both US Top Ten singles that same year. The albums themselves made the Billboard Top 100 chart. Today, the Hollies with original members Tony Hicks and Bobby Elliot still continue to record and tour. Digitally remastered and slipcased, and with extensive new notes.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last the US albums are out! 25 Aug 2011
I've had this for a few days and would like to add a few thoughts on it:
Packaging: Card slipcase over jewel case plus very extensive booklet that gives sleeve notes from the European Bus Stop and US Stop Stop Stop albums as well as potted history of the Hollies and the US.
Mastering credits are 2011 Andrew Thompson , Sound Performance, London, England whose work I like having a number of discs he's mastered.
The Sound: The most striking thing is the lack of grey harshness compared to my experience of the 6 CD box Clarke,Hicks and Nash set that is remarkable value for money in some ways (and no doubt the same on the individual stereo/mono cds) and a sense of more resolution that is most marked on Bus Stop.
Stop Stop Stop is the re-titled US issue that is the same as the UK For Certain Because album which is a gem of the Hollies 60's output.
For once I did feel like turn the volume right up and noticed the 'scale' increased sounding like you're surrounded by a beat group with real dynamics sound lacking the oppressive buzz of limited mastering. There's some good low end on this cd.
To summarize, If you're looking for the best currently available For Certain Because on cd then this is it outperforming the UK EMI editions and Bus Stop as much as it is a hodge podge of tracks over two years does gel reasonably well giving you good versions of the songs from their respective UK tape sources.

5.0 out of 5 stars More British Invasion Pop of Highest Order 7 April 2011
By John C. Onyun - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I became aware of the excellent U.K. reissue label BGO one year ago, with Steppenwolf's
first 2 LPs on one convenient disc.....
this fine Hollies CD combines 2 of their USA Imperial LPs from 1966.

Just like their Abbey Road label-mates, the Hollies' early LPs varied greatly,
depending on which side of the pond you resided. The Bus Stop album is enjoyable, but a bit uneven--
pairing newer material with several tracks from their 1964 U.K. albums.
That said, the title track is timeless, and the rockin' Don't Run and Hide should have been a hit,
had it not been hidden on the 45's flip side.
Whatcha Gonna Do 'Bout It has great Invasion beat-- Bobby Elliott's crisp, tasteful drumming is always a highlight.
Baby That's All is another gorgeous hidden B-side.
The album's only wrong turn is the reverb-drenched, unnecessary cover of S&G's I Am A Rock.

The Stop Stop Stop album is light years ahead of Bus Stop--very hard to believe it's from the same year!
A completely self-penned album, the song maturity and lyrical depth-jump is amazing. Graham Nash is obviously about to explode as a major artist (Tell Me To My Face is Marrakesh Express, Jr.). Also, the introspective Clown and Crusader clearly pave Nash's road towards CS&N, less than two years later.

The sound on this CD is good stereo, remastered in 2011 by Andrew Thompson.
Excellent liner notes. Highly recommended.
(Please note: the Hollies reissue CDs on the Sundazed label are also excellent.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Early Hollies 2 May 2011
By Philip A.Cohen - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This two-fer contains two of the U.S.A. Hollies albums from 1966. As with The Beatles & Peter and Gordon, The Hollies' then-U.S.A. label took the liberty of recompiling the artists' music for the U.S.A., including singles & E.P. tracks that had not appeared as album tracks in the Uk. The "Bus Stop" album contains the title track and its' B-side "Don't Run and Hide", plus the catchy "We're Through" and a number of selections from the group's third Uk album "Hollies", and even one 1963 track with early drummer Don Rathbone("Little Lover", which sounds a bit out of place here).

By the time of the "Stop Stop Stop" album, Imperial Records stopped recompiling the group's music. The album is(excepting the title and album artwork), the same as the group's 5th Uk album "For Certain Because". This superbly recorded eclectic album consisted entirely of original Clarke/Hicks/Nash compositions including the hits "Stop Stop Stop" & "Pay You Back with Interest"

There are two possible approaches to presenting U.S.A.-compiled albums on CD: use the U.S.A. compilation masters, which some would call true to the original vinyl, but which gives distorted 3rd generation audio......or recompile the albums(using the exact same songs/takes) but from the finest existing Uk source tapes....which gives much better sound. Fortunately, for this Hollies CD, UK/EMI has supplied quality UK source tapes. The "Bus Stop" album has 10 songs in high quality true stereo & 2 songs in pure mono.(This album was the first Hollies album that I bought back in 1968, but my vinyl L.P. is the mono edition. If it is true, as some have said, that the original stereo vinyl was mostly fake stereo, then EMI & the BGO label have done a wise thing reassembling the album from quality Uk original masters). The "Stop Stop Stop" album has been taken from the original 1966 Uk stereo "For Certain Because" masters, excepting "It's You", which is a 1993 remix(the original 1966 stereo mix of "It's You" had stark instruments left/vocals right separation. The 1993 mix has the vocals in the center/ instruments left)

Avid fans will note that this CD marks the CD debut of the original 1966 stereo mix of "Don't Run and Hide", the mix originally featured on a continental European L.P. release[with a slightly different song line-up] of the "Bus Stop" album.

This CD documents the group's transition from a group playing cover versions of American rock n'roll and specially written songs from Uk songwriters, to a group playing all-original material. And you get the superb, incomparable vocal harmonies of The (then) mid-20-ish Hollies in their heyday, and the underappreciated instrumental fire from guitarist Tony Hicks & drummer Bobby Elliott

5.0 out of 5 stars US Imperial albums 29 April 2011
By Fredric A. Cooper - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Here is an interesting release; the two US LPs from 1966. The first, "Bus Stop", was quickly assembled on the back of The Hollies' first US Top 10 hit. The album is a hodge-podge of previously unreleased and previously released tracks dating from 1964-6. Imperial oddly chose to repeat "Oriental Sadness" from their previous compilation LP, "Beat Group!", and "You Know He Did", "Baby That's All", and "Don't Run and Hide" had been B-sides to singles. The remaining tracks include an outstanding Phil Spectorish treatment of Simon and Garfunkel's "I Am A Rock" which is so thrilling it could have been a hit on its own. Another Doris ("Just One Look") Troy cover, "Whatcha Gonna Do About It" is taken from the band's '64 UK debut LP, and ends the album on a high note. Good runthroughs of "Candy Man" and "Mickey's Monkey" keep things rocking nicely. A good album even with the somewhat dated (by 1966 standards) material included. "Stop! Stop! Stop!" is a different story. This is the band's answer to The Beatles' "Rubber Soul" album, with unusual instrumentation and some orchestration. "Pay You Back With Interest" got enough attention that Imperial issued it as a single and it charted at No. 28. "Tell Me To My Face" received a fine cover version by Keith, which also charted. The only track that I'm not crazy about is the vaudevillian "High Classed", which showed how much influence The New Vaudeville Band's huge hit "Winchester Cathedral" had on the pop scene at the time. A fine album that, along with too many Hollies LPs, got overshadowed by the hits. Both of these albums sported great front cover photos improving on the less-than-spectacular UK album covers at the time.
