The Hollies: Here I Go Again - 180g Vinyl
Released in America in 1964 by Imperial Records, Here I Go Again was the Hollies' U.S. debut, and is rated by many fans as superior to its British counterpart, Stay with the Hollies. Here I Go Again offers an accurate representation of the Hollies' early repertoire, comprised largely of distinctive covers of American R&B and rock 'n' roll classics. In addition to the ultra-catchy title tune and their hit covers of Maurice Williams' "Stay" and Doris Troy's "Just One Look," the album finds the Hollies applying their trademark style to such iconic numbers as Chuck Berry's "Memphis," Little Richard's "Lucille" and Arthur Alexander's "You Better Move On." Of all the English bands who achieved international success during the first wave of the British Invasion, none combined youthful rock 'n' roll energy with musical sophistication more compellingly than the Hollies.
The Manchester quintet effortlessly combined the effervescent, Everly Brothers-inspired vocal harmonies of Allan Clarke, Graham Nash and Tony Hicks with a muscular rhythm section driven by the brilliant drummer Bobby Elliott, creating one of their era's most beloved and enduring musical catalogs. As was standard practice with British acts at the time, the Hollies' early albums reached American shores in very different form than the versions that were released overseas, with alternate track listings and different cover art than their U.K. and European counterparts. Although these unique variants are the form in which millions of American fans first experienced these historic albums, they have been out of print for decades, and have long been obtainable only at inflated collectors' prices.

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.
