The first two Hollies albums reveal a band, who, like most of their contemporaries, began by concentrating on r&b covers. The 'Stay' album features just one self-penned song. They were already employing three-part harmonies, and here they sound enthusiastic but wayward. Significantly, the harmonies are at their best on 'It's Only Make Believe', pointing the way toward a more pop-oriented direction. Some of the rhythm and blues is impressive, particularly their version of Chuck berry's 'Talkin' 'Bout You', but most of it, particularly another Berry cover, 'Memphis', indicates that they couldn't compete in this area with the likes of The Rolling Stones, Manfred Mann, The Yardbirds or The Animals. Theirs was a lighter, more Beatlesque sound.

'In The Hollies Style' is a big leap forward. Half of the songs are their own and are fairly impressive, particularly 'To You My Love' and 'Come On Home'. Also, as a unit, they sound tighter, though yet another Berry cover, 'Too Much Monkey Business', confirms that r&b wasn't the way forward. This CD is a worthwhile buy if you like their other recordings, but isn't the best place to start.

This CD features mono versions of the Hollies first two LPs. What a good idea, putting two albums out on one CD - I wish they could have done this with The Hollies later LPs too!
Their first outing, "Stay With The Hollies", is pretty average beat group fare. Of course, you've got mediocre cover versions of the tunes everyone did back then; "Memphis Tennessee", "Do You Love Me?", "Lucille" etc. By and large, there exists a better cover of nearly all of these tunes. However, there are some interesting, lesser-known ones on here too, such as Roy Orbison's "Candy Man" and Ray Charles' "What Kind Of Girl Are You", that are well above average.
The second album, "In The Hollies Style", is miles better, mainly due to the fact that half of the tunes are self composed (L Ransford being a pseudonym for Allan Clarke and Graham Nash). Even the cover versions are much better on this LP though; their version of "Nitty Gritty" is surprisingly heavy, whilst "I Thought Of You Last Night" is a lovely tune. However, it's the original tunes that really stand out on this album. If you like the classic "Merseybeat" sound of the early Beatles and The Searchers, then this will be right up your street. For me, stand out tracks are "You'll Be Mine" - unbelievably catchy, that one - and "Set Me Free"; anyone who ever thought the Hollies were lightweight should listen to this, as it shows they could do serious Britsh RnB with the best of them.
I have in my posession all the Hollies albums, and whilst these aren't my favourites, they are still very strong recordings. Why neither of these albums sold very well when originally released is a mystery.
