Next to the Beatles, any band would pale in comparison, but the Hollies put out single after single of great pop music in the mid-'60s. Gorgeous harmonies, killer material, whether self-penned or from outside, and just different enough ("Stop! Stop! Stop!" for example) to command attention without being novelties. The later material, like "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother" was maudlin, but at their peak, on "Bus Stop," "Look Through Any Window," and most of the songs here, they could stand up against anybody--even the Fabs. And that's a recommendation, unreserved and enduring. --Chris Nickson

Not the most complete anthology

"I've always loved the Hollies, but if you want a more complete sample of their oeuvre (including several major British hits that were not released in the U.S.), try the "20 Golden Greats" cd."
Steering you to their Best ALbum
Gary Ostreicher | Phoenix, az United States | 11/02/1999
(1 out of 5 stars)
"This is fine and all, but their best collection is the Greatest Hits (Epic). WIth King MIdas and a few others, it is so much better and the order of the songs is more interesting. This is good, but why not have the best (that you thought you were getting)"
One of the best rock band that survives many changes
C. H Smith | 08/23/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Hollies is one of the band that survived the changes of line-up. The early line-up includes Hall of famed, Graham Nash who played rhytm guitar and provided high harmony for Hollies. This line-up is my most favorite and perhaps the most famous. During the early years Hollies made several hits like Bus Stop, Just One Look, and On the Carousel. The Hollies didn't break up after Graham Nash and Lead Singer, Allan Clarke left the groups. They continued to make some hit like Long Cool Woman music in 70's"
