Hello Friends! Today we're targeting the second half of 1965, with the 3rd LP from The Hollies, simply titled, "Hollies". This album was very much a case of two steps forward and one step back from their previous LP, with Folk Rock seeping into the formula, and some interesting production techniques popping up across the album. However, the decreased level of original material is certainly disappointing, but of course the entire LP is presented with that classic Hollies polish. With that in mind, upon release the UK only saw a mono copy of this album, with the stereo remaining an export until 1969, when it was reissued with a new title and cover under the budget Starline label. With this in mind, should you be seeking out that original mono pressing, or will this readily available stereo pressing suit your needs, despite it's instruments left and vocals right mixing? Let's move on Down the Line and find out!
