4.0 out of 5 stars THE HOLLIES ESSENCE SOUND : SHE'D KILL FOR ME SONG, 12 Oct 2010
This review is from: Then, Now, Always (Audio CD)
THE HOLLIES SECOND ALBUM (AFTER 2006 "STAYING POWER" ALBUM) WITH PETER HOWARTH SINGER IS GREAT. "THEN, NOW, ALWAYS" IS PURE HARMONIES VOCALS IN THE HOLLIES STYLE. I KNOW THAT ARE NOT ALLAN CLARKE, GRAHAM NASH, TERRY SYLVESTER OR MICHAEL RICKFORS (I MISSED THEM) BUT NOW THE CAPITAINS HOLLIES BOAT ARE TONY HICKS (LEAD GUITAR, VOCALS AND HARMONIES) AND THE GREAT DRUMMER BOBBY ELLIOTT (BOTH ORIGINALS HOLLIES MEMBERS) TOGETHER LONGTIME HOLLIES RAY STILES (BASS, VOCALS, HARMONIES AND EX-MUD) AND IAN PARKER (KEYBOARDS). SINCE 2004 NEW MEMBERS ARE STEVE LAURI (GUITAR, VOCALS AND HARMONIES) AND PETER HOWARTH (LEAD VOCALS AND ACOUSTIC GUITAR), A FINE SINGER WITH ALLAN CLARKE SIMILAR VOICE.
THE HOLLIES NEW ALBUM (PRODUCED BY THE BASSIST RAY STILES) IS TOO MUCH FILLED OF FAVOURITES POP-ROCK TUNES IN THE HOLLIES STYLE: "THEN, NOW, ALWAYS (DOLPHIN DAYS)" (AN AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL HOLLIES SONG OWN BY BOBBY ELLIOTT AND MARK NELSON WITH TONY HICKS LEAD VOCALS), "IF YOU SEE HER" (GOOD POP-ROCK SONG), "ONE TOUCH" (PURE HARMONIES HOLLIES STYLE WITH TONY HICKS SITAR), "PASSENGERS" (ONE FAVOURITE TUNE WITH FORMIDABLE PETER HOWARTH VOICE AND FINE HARMONIES HOLLIES MEMBERS), "I WOULD FLY" (VERY GOOD BALLAD WITH FINE GUITARWORK BY TONY), "COMING HOME" (AN EXPERIMENTAL POP SONG IN THE HOLLIES STYLE), "I LIED" (OTHER ROCKER SONG FAVOURITE), "ONE WAY TICKET" (A TUNE WITH LATIN SOUND INFLUENCES MAYBE?), "TOO MUCH TOO SOON" (FAVOURITE POP-ROCK SONG WITH FINE VOCAL WORK AND HARMONIES HOLLIES STYLE), "UNFORGIVABLE" (ONE MORE FAVOURITE PETER HOWARTH LEAD VOCALS TUNE WITH GREATESTS HARMONIES HOLLIES MEMBERS), "HEARTS DON'T LIE" (OTHER FAVOURITE SONG TOO WITH FINE PETER HOWARTH LEAD VOCALS AND HICKS/LAURI HARMONIES) AND THE LAST ALBUM SONG, MY BEST AND FAVOURITE TUNE , "SHE'D KILL FOR ME" (OWN BOBBY ELLIOTT AND MARK NELSON SONG TOO), OH! I LOVE THIS SONG! THE BEST HARMONIES IN THE HOLLIES STYLE (COMEBACK TO THE 60 OR 70 YEARS) WHERE (LIKE ALLAN CLARKE) PETER REALLY SHINES VOCALLY AND TONY IS PLAYING THE SITAR AGAIN. THIS TUNE IS THE HOLLIES ESSENCE SOUND: ¡THE BEST VOCALS HARMONIES! THANK YOU, BOBBY (AND MARK NELSON OF COURSE!)FOR THIS FANS PRESENT: "SHE'D KILL FOR ME".
NOW, I'M WAITING THE NEXT HOLLIES ALBUM FILLED OF GREATEST SONGS WITH IMPATIENCE.
THE HOLLIES FOREVER!

Original drummer was Don Rathbone who was fairly average. Bobby Elliott is I reckon the best ever beat group/rock drummer. Always have been amazed that they weren't huge in the USA
