4.0 out of 5 stars
about time, 15 May 2012
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.
