The Hollies as a live band sound pretty well the same as on their records, although many records used double tracking as well, so they're really a great band... great harmonies, really interesting bass, lead guitar and drumming as well. There's footage of them recording at Abbey Road Studios, and some songs even have an explanation and demonstration of the lead guitar or drum parts before seeing the old live footage. Also cool for musicians is seeing all the old and now vintage gear they used.
Overall, a MUST buy for any Hollies fan and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for any fan of 1960's British Invasion. Enjoy!
The picture is 1.33:1. In telling the story of the Hollies, the interviews are in colour, while the precious original music performances are both in black and white, and colour. Overall, the picture is very pleasing. Contrasts and black colour are also acceptable. (4/5)
The audio is in Dolby Stereo 2.0. Considering the age of the footage, the sound is really very acceptable, showing off the 3-part harmony of the Hollies. (4/5)
This is where this disc really shines. The picture consists of interviews with Graham Nash, Allan Clarke, Tony Hicks and Bobby Elliot. I really enjoyed the stories told by the Hollies members, giving me more insight into many of their hits. For example, their original 2-part harmony was tailored after the Everly Brothers. Then, by accident, they developed their famous 3-part harmony, when Tony Hicks was humming in a low voice. The song Stop Stop Stop was written after their encounter at a strip-tease club and Tony Hicks was showing us how he got to play a banjo for that song. Their experience at Abbey Road studio was revered. And the song Carrie-Anne was really written after the beautiful Marianne Faithful and they were too shy to use her name, not wanting her to know that they all wanted to make love to her....and the steel drummer in that song was taken from the street, not to be seen again later. In the song Jennifer Eccles, Jennifer was Allan Clarke's wife's first name, and Eccles was Graham Nash's wife's maiden name! The conflict of Graham Nash was detailed. After Graham Nash left for Crosby, Stills & Nash, Hollies had a major hit with He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother. The famous producer, Ron Richards, said that the song was the best recording he ever produced.Read more ›

I thought the Hollies would be a concert and not a bunch of old black and white clips. Do NOT waste your money on this piece of old out dated video. Read morePublished 23 months ago by glen potter
