VIDEO:

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)

AUDIO:

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)

CONTENTS:

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.

I've always loved the Hollies but you don't really find much product for them, compared to the other more obvious British Invasion bands (Beatles, Stones, Kinks, Who). I was pleasantly surprised to find this DVD on Amazon and I ordered it based on other positive reviews. All I can say is WOW, it's a Hollies goldmine! It's the whole story of the band told via recent interviews with members and interspersed with live footage (some is lip-syncing on a TV show though). You have the options of just playing all the live footage, and there's a LOT of songs, all the biggest hits and played in their entirety. The whole program is well over 2 hours and it's very interesting. A lot of care has gone into this product... The film is well edited, the interview comments are very thoughtful and well articulated, and the remastered video and sound quality are also very good, especially considering the age of the footage. The company that makes this DVD has a proven track record of making great music related DVD's (I own some of their Jazz Icons DVD's and every one is great).

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!

Great sixties band. Never cared for Graham Nash but other band members were very talented. This contains all their big hits at various venues around the world. Filmed live but no crowd noise to disrupt the performances.

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. I only wish I could have got a second hand version for a quarter of the cost.
