CD Reviews

Pop power from 1974
Fredric A. Cooper | Torrance, CA United States | 09/10/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Amazon's review is wrong; this 1974 LP often gets confused with their 1965 LP, mainly because they are both simply titled "Hollies". This one is the band's reunion LP with Allan Clarke, and is one of their best from the '70s, with delightful tunes such "Falling Calling" and "Down on the Run", both featuring harmonica. Why this LP only generated one hit, "The Air that I Breathe" is a mystery; everything here is equally commercial-sounding. Unfortunately, the happy atmosphere here was short-lived, as the albums that followed were workmanlike affairs, with a general lack of musical direction. No matter; The Hollies are one of the great pop bands, and this is one of their best moments."
You're Both Wrong

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is neither a reunion LP or a reissue of the 1965 album/ This is compilation CD based on a 1987 cassette release on tyHour of Pleasure series. I have it, the cover matches the picture and the track list set forth above is accurate. Don't be misled.Kusically. it's a mixed back of singles, B-sides, album cuts and EP tracks, with a few cignificant hits and a bunch of early covers. A real smorgasbord.When, oh when will someone come out with a definitive box set for this group? The three disc set is out of print, and you have to find what you can where you can in a piecemeal fashion...like this."

"I read the other reviews of this item, and I'm totally lost. I had this on original vinyl and absolutely LOVED it, and some of the tracks mentioned in the first review did NOT exist on the original LP, which was correctly issued in 1974. I consider this LP to be one of the best the Hollies ever did, as it showcased the musical style they developed far better than most of their previous work, which sometimes included covers of other persons' material. True, it's not the stuff one may expect, if they consistantly think of the Hollies as doing only songs like Stop, Stop, Stop, or Carrie Anne, but I doubt anyone could honestly say this LP/CD is not one of their best."
