The Hollies: Beat Group (1966) - 180g Vinyl

LP auf SUNDAZED RECORDS von HOLLIES - Beat Group (1966) - 180g Vinyl

BY 'IMPERIAL' DECREE, ALL HAIL THE HOLLIES!

Originally released in the U.S. in 1966, Beat Group! was the American cousin to the Hollies' British LP Would You Believe'. However, identical cousins they were not: Beat Group! boasts substantially altered musical content and completely different cover art. Led by the snap-jangle-pop of the smash single, 'I Can't Let Go,' the album is a thrilling combination of originals and R&B covers ripped from their riotous live sets. Highlights include commanding versions of Buddy Holly's 'Take Your Time,' Sam and Dave's 'I Take What I Want' and the Otis Redding/O.V. Wright classic 'That's How Strong My Love Is.' Original songs 'Hard Hard Year,' 'Oriental Sadness' and 'Fifi the Flea,' along with Mersey Beat staples 'A Taste of Honey' and 'Mr. Moonlight' round out the disc.

Out of print for decades, this classic album is FINALLY available again. Sourced from the aurally awesome original U.K. mono master, this LP is pressed on pristine 180-gram vinyl per your turntable's request. Get in the queue!

Perhaps the most undervalued band of the original British Invasion, The Hollies' hits are well known in the U.S., but their early albums are almost impossible to find! Taking their name from Buddy Holly and modeling their harmonies on the Everly Brothers, the Hollies gathered these American musical ingredients and whipped them into a wholly-UKnique concoction. Forging their sound to the east of their Liverpool brothers-in-beat, this Manchester quintet had it all: the soaring vocals of Allan Clarke, Graham Nash and Tony Hicks; Hicks' cascading, arpeggio-laden licks on guitar and a hard-hitting rhythm section driven by drummer extraordinaire Bobby Elliot. 


 On top of that, their keen ears for top quality songs, written by the premier songsmiths of the day like teenage wunderkind Graham Gouldman, Chip 'Wild Thing' Taylor and the stellar in-house writing team of Clarke/Hicks/Nash, ensured that their albums were extraordinary from start to finish. In short, they were a band that exuded greatness on all fronts. Now, as that greatness has been acknowledged by their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Sundazed Music is proud to present meticulously restored vinyl editions of the rare U.S. mono versions of the Hollies' third and fourth Imperial label albums, from 1966.

Artist description "Hollies, The"

The Hollies

Founded 1962 in Manchester

The successful English group, which placed no less than 27 single hits in the international charts between 1963 and 1975, was formed in 1962 from an amateur band called'The Deltas'. The core of the group consisted of Graham Nash, Allan Clarke, Don Rathbone and Eric Haydock, who were joined by Tony Hicks as lead guitarist. In 1966, Bobby Elliott joined the group for Don Rathbone. The Hollies suffered the substantial loss when Graham Nash left the band in late 1968 to work in the States with David Crosby and Stephen Stills. Terry Sylvester, former guitarist of the Swingin' Bluejeans, stepped into the gap left by Nash.

At the end of 1971, singer Allan Clarke, whose distinctive voice allowed the Hollies to distinguish themselves, decided to leave the group and start a solo career. Since this project did not succeed, it was not too difficult for Hollies guitarist Terry Sylvester to get Clarke to return to the group. With Clarke as the new, old singer, the Hollies immediately made the hoped-for comeback. With their last titles, such as'The Air That I Breathe', they returned to the top positions in the hit lists without detours.
