At last the Hollies we've wanted!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Clarke, Hicks & Nash Years: The Complete Hollies, April 1963-October 1968 (Audio CD)
I bought the Hollies' singles "Just One Look", "On a Carousel" and "Carrie Anne" when they first came out. I also bought their album "Evolution" when it was released, partly because I liked the band, but also, I must admit, because of the psychedelic cover. Their truly progressive album (and that's not a word you hear associated with The Hollies much) "Butterfly" (from 1967 of course), my friend had, so I didn't get a copy until 1979 when I we'd lost touch and I hadn't heard it for some years.
Decades pass and I still listen to the old stuff and borrowed a copy of a recent compilation from a local library (use libraries you fools!). All the great stuff was still great but there was some later stuff that was distinctly less than that. And then I saw that this set was out, with the perfect title and a rediculous price, definitely a "must have".
Fabulous collection and a completist's dream, with the live concert and the foreign language versions of some songs and both my much loved and similarly played albums there. Now I can rest the vinyl and just get "Evolution" out once in awhile to enjoy the cover. I wonder if my friend bought this? Must mention it on this year's Christmas card.
