Biography

From 1963 through to the mid-70’s, the Hollies had more hits than the Beatles. In that period alone, they had 17 Top ten hits, while “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother” gave them a second No 1 hit when re-released in 1988. “I’m Alive” had been their first chart topper back in 1965. At the heart of the band since 1963 are two original members, ... Read more in Amazon's Hollies Store

5.0 out of 5 stars The absolute best salute to a great group 6 Aug 2005
By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Ah, my heart goes pitter patter all over again. Allan Clark was bloody beautiful (those black-haired Brits always have a soft spot in my heart) and wow...this beautiful tribute made me recall that torrid crush! His voice was beautiful, too. But the Hollies were so much more. Graham Nash stood in Clark's shadow somewhat and didn't become a real force until he left and formed Crosby, Still & Nash and then later Young, but he was part of the Hollies sounds, wrote many of their tunes. His harmony with Allan was what made the Hollies so unique.
6 set CD, generally 20 cuts per CD this is the definitive Hollies collection, likely some songs you may not have ever heard. 1-5 are double sided, with rare and unreleased recordings. The 6th CD contains live material from 60s, 70s and 90s including the Swedish Show for 1966, and the completely Hollies Live Hits album recorded in New Zealand in 1976. Also, you get a 60 page book loaded with pictures, showing them recording and a more personal look at the lads (check out Allan in the swim trunks - be still my besotted heart! lol) The inside flaps of the booklet contains pictures of every Hollies' album cover and a breakdown of what each CD contains and information about it.
Serious stuff. This is amazing. Hey, Allan, sorry you retired because I still love you, Graham and the lads and would be willing to have one more ride on the carousel!
The Hollies music was infection. You sense they had a great time singing, and did so with a flair all their own with a wee dram of humour.
There was no group like them. So thank you thank you for this ultimate tribute.
Absolutely worth the price!

5.0 out of 5 stars JUST WONDERFUL 23 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD
HAVING PURCHASED THE HOLLIES GREATEST HITS I WAS AMAZED AT HOW GREAT THE SONGS ON THERE WERE, SO WHEN I SAW THIS BOX SET I JUST HAD TO HAVE IT. LUCKILY I CONVINCED THE WIFE THAT IT WOULD BE 45 WELL SPENT AND I GOT IT. WHAT CAN I SAY, MONEY WELL WORTH SPENT. IT IS CRAMMED WITH OVER 130 SUPERB HOLLIES SONGS MANY OF WHICH YOU WONT FIND ON THE USUAL AND NUMEROUS BEST OF PACKAGES. IT CONCENTRATES ON THE TOO MANY TO MENTION QUALITY NON SINGLE ALBUM TRACKS AS WELL AS A FEW SINGLES THROWN IN TO KEEP US HAPPY.IT CONSISTS OF SIX DISCS JOURNEYING THROUGH THE HOLLIES ALBUMS RIGHT UP TO WHAT GOES AROUND. THE FINAL DISC IS THE HOLLIES AT THEIR BEST AND LIVE. HAVING DISCOVERED GEMS FROM THE VARIOUS ALBUMS IT CONVINCED ME TO START A LONG FRUSTRATING JOURNEY TO OWN ALL THE HOLLIES CATALOGUE ON CD. SOMETHING I EVENTUALLY DID ( WITH THANKS TO THOSE WONDERFUL GUYS AT MAGIC RECORDS ). IN A NUT SHELL I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOX SET AND I ASSURE YOU IT WONT LET YOU DOWN.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic career overview of a very underrated band!!! 22 Feb 2004
By Mark A. Wallace - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This boxset in my opinion covers everything.After reading some of the other reviews i had to respond to some of the negative comments about this box.Some reviewers have said that this box is for "diehard Hollies fans only".Well,yes thats true.For the most part only diehards would shell out this much money for this import.Some people have said that it doesnt contain enough of their hits? Then dont buy this boxset and buy a hits collection! Their are MANY to choose from out there! This box is simply an overview of their career-not GREATEST HITS.The set includes many classic lp tracks,lots of their hits,b-sides,live cuts and some unreleased gems.The sound quality is absoloutely stunning! The richness of their vocals stands out more now with the remastering than ever before! The musianship is outstanding.Tony Hicks guitar licks standing out more than ever.If you are looking for a greatest hits of the Hollies,then i would advice you to look elsewhere at the numerous collections out there.Or pick your favorite Hollies lp and buy it,EMI has recently remastered most of their CDs right up to my favorite Hollies lp(Distant Light).All CDs have also been remastered and come in very cool digipack If i was to have "one" small complaint about the boxset,it would be that maybe a couple more tracks from "Distant Light" could have been added.And maybe some more tracks from the Graham Nash era.But heck, i own all of the EMI remasters anyway! So if you are a "completist" like me,and you LOVE the Hollies then this is for you.If you are a casual fan then just get a "Greatest Hits" CD.But for me this boxset is superb.I have MANY other boxsets and the packaging and soundquality of this set ranks up there with the best of them.So once again-buy and enjoy if you REALLY LOVE the Hollies.But to be safe,check the tracklisting first because this box is not their greatest Hits-it is part of their hits and MUCH MUCH MORE!! Cheers!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have for any Hollies Fan! 5 Oct 2004
By James - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great compilation! Yes, I would have been happier if the first disk was in stereo instead of mono, since the tracks are available in stereo, and the great live album from the '70s, The Hollies Live Hits were not reproduced in entirety since it is already available, and, if some of the tracks from What Goes Around were included (perhaps contractual problems prevented that), and if the remaining tracks from the post Graham Nash reunion period were included, like Hillsboro, Naomi, You're All Woman, and Your Eyes. It's easy to quibble about the song selection, when the catalogue is so large, and there are still unreleased songs, nevertheless, this is a WONDERFUL compilation, with numerous unreleased tracks, and out takes. The notes on the track listings are fascinating, and the quality is excellent. I bought my first Hollies album in 1965 (Hear Here) and who would have thought I would be buying their latest release 39 years later!! Get this and the Reunion album, just re-released.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Pleased Buyer 1 Jan 2004
By "mcmurdo8" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A Big Hollies fan from New Zealand.
This box set is not designed to be a greatest hits collection. Although it does include some of the huge hits from their career. I was excited when I saw that this set was coming out, in fact I didn't wait for it to be released in my country, I bought my copy on line and had it shipped to me. What this box set shows off is a selection of album tracks, basically taken from every album they recorded throughout their career (20 or so in all),plus some rare and unreleased material. The only omission appears to be some tracks from the album "What Goes Around" except for a rare first recording of "If The Lights Go Out" To my way of thinking the Hollies are one of the finest bands the world has known. Everyone has heard about their great harmonies. But they are more than just vocals. Bobby Elliot would surely rate as one of the all time great drummers, just listen to his playing from the first recordings through to the later ones. Tony Hicks lead guitar work is like a vintage wine, he gets better and better with age. I think this is a wonderfull collection and shows off a side of this band that has been sadly missed by far too many people. Their albums are wonderfull, so here is a great chance to get a taste of their style & flavour of music aside from most of the hits. Listen in awe, the songs & arrangements, the playing & vocals are superb. Very satisfied buyer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long Cool Band in a Blue Box 30 Dec 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Fist of all, I admit my five star rating is being overly generous, but I was happy to see this box set released. My dissatisfactions are similar to those of the previous reviewers in that too many studio versions of thier best songs have been omitted. With Carrie Ann, Just one look, and Bus Stop we only get the live versions. On a Carousel, Jennifer Eccles and Do the Best You Can are not included at all.
That's the bad news, good news is lots of excellent material here and all freshly remastered and sounding sparklingly wonderful.
This was not really designed as a greatest hits box, it's more of a 40 yer spread of this, that and sometimes the other.
Discs 1 through 5 are studio recordings in chronological order. Disc 6 is comprised of live recordings.
Discs 1,2 and 3 are all chock full of catchy, appealing and harmonicly rich tunes. By the second half of disc four we're hitting the mid/late 1970's which was a pretty stylistacly bland time for most veteran bands and the Hollies were no excepetion here. The 5th disc is 80's through 2003 little of which is of interest due to strick click-track drum beats, digital keyboards and over-glossed production.
On to disc 6 (Live) which dare I say is the true unveiling of a band that can play (and sing!). The live recordings are all of surprisingly good audio quality.
In the included book origal bassist Eric Haydock mentions having a 6-string tenor guitar/bass. On the first three live cuts (from 1966) you can hear Eric playing that six-string bass doubling some of the riffs with Tony Hicks guitar, but you have to listen close to catch it.
The package itself is first rate. Not a box per se, this is a double fold out digipack hard case. The 80 page book has track by track breakdown of when and where the recording was made, session dates, record sleeve artwork, a running history of the group and a generous supply of photos.
If a potential customer looks at the description along with the track listing then they will know what is and isn't included here.
I know this collection is not cheap $ (being an import only). I recommend getting this set along with the 2003 remastered 2-cd "Hollies Greatest Hits" which will will cover all the essential studio cuts.
I can understand the question of who exactly Long Road Home was compiled for (?) but I'm quite pleases with it's contents (aside from the 80's/90's material)
By the way, the vocals throughout are positivly superb!
