For years, both Hollies fans and fans of general 1960's music have often wondered why the Hollies have never had their own 'Live at the BBC' type compilation. Just about every other major 1960's artist has had one, and the Hollies are rumoured to have recorded over 60 tracks for the BBC over the years. Whatever the reason it took them so long to get around to it, you can imagine the excitement that this compilation generated when it was announced back in March.

What we have here is an excellent collection of rare live recordings. Not much survives or was ever recorded of the Hollies performing live on tour with Graham Nash in their 1960's heyday. Bizarre when you think about it, especially as the Hollies frequently topped the polls in various music magazines of the day for being the best live act. There's no less than 32 tracks here - and all of the performances are excellent. There's virtually no 'fillers' to be found here. Some real highlights include "Wings" (with alternative lyrics), "Shake", "Ride Your Pony", "I Take What I Want", "Hard Hard Year", "To You My Love", "Too Young To Be Married" and "The Games We Play". The packaging is tasteful and features a few rare and unseen images of the band from the early 1960's. There's also an excellent commentary from Bobby Elliott himself.

However, there are some things to bear in mind with this compilation;

Firstly, the BBC erased most of the original master tapes for the Hollies' sessions over the years. So most clips here are either from transcription discs or from amateur recordings made at the time. This is acceptable, but the remastering isn't particularly anything to write home about. There is certainly room for improvement.

Considering the music on this cd is between 40 and 50 years old, its about time we heard these versions.
This cd proves just how great the Hollies were, their unique harmonies, amazing guitaring and drums. But I think this proves how great Eric and Bernie were on the bass. Im so bored with music writers banging on about the prowess of the fabs, stones etc. Yes they were great , yes they were successful but the Hollies to my mind deserve more respect for what theyve acheived.

The fact that many of these songs werent singles proves the strength of their back catalogue. Wings is such a strong song that most bands would have been proud to have it as a single. Its also great to hear some songs from 1967 with orchestras (im not sure if theyre tapes or a real orchestra)

Id recommend this to anyone whether they are a fan already or someone who just loves live music from one of historys greatest bands.

It's great to hear this music been released after all those years. A great group with great songs. Just a little comment: why has this cd no "radio" atmosphere? All the other BBC-recordings from other artists have choosen for radio comments and interviews and why not on the Hollies? I think some intros and outros have a little bit abruptly vanished and after all, these were radio shows. Positive is more space for the music, but my suggestion is to re-release it as a double-album so that other BBC-recordings and interviews of this swell group might see the light of day as well

I bought this cd in advance (Of course, I'm a "Hollies' Graham Nash era" fan) and I must say that left me a taste of...hmmm..."it's okay, but..." on my ears.
The highlight of this cd is the audio. Just awesome. As usually, The Hollies sounds like in their records.
Nice Bobby Elliot's note.

Now, the weakest points of this cd:
*Tracks are not in chronological order. Too bad.... so, first track is "Here are go again" (1964) and the second "Jennifer Eccles" (1968) -for example-
*No interviews with the guys or presenter introducing the next song.
*Thanks to the point above, some songs lost few seconds of intro.
*Poor booklet, just 4 pages,5 pics and a few of info. that's all. Strange... Bernie Calvert doesn't appear on any picture!)
Again, is good to have a "new" Hollies cd with us,but we deserved something else close to "Beatles at the bbc"...
