The Hollies - Very Best Of The Hollies 1974-77 album FLAC

This record would have disappeared long ago were it not for regal centerpiece "The Air That I Breathe," arguably pop's greatest ballad. The rest of the material naturally pales in comparison, but 1974's Hollies delivers likable-enough smiley face rock with the quintet's lilting trademark harmonies throughout. Of course, silly star fables like "Out on the Road" can't measure up to past glories. Same goes for the morally ambiguous, similarly titled openers.

Hollies is a 1974 album by the English pop-rock band The Hollies, marking the return of Allan Clarke after he had left for a solo career. The centerpiece is the band's classic cover of Albert Hammond's ballad "The Air That I Breathe," a major worldwide hit that year. It also contains yet another "Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress" soundalike in "The Day That Curly Billy Shot Down Crazy Sam McGee". Bonus tracks from 1991 CD. "Mexico Gold" (Alexander, Campbell, Overton). Tip Of The Iceberg" (Tony Hicks, Kenny Lynch). Burn, Fire, Burn" (Bobby Elliott). Born A Man" (Tony Hicks, Kenny Lynch). No More Riders" (Terry Sylvester, B-side of the "The Air That I Breathe" single). 2005 CD. Features all of the above tracks (except "Burn, Fire, Burn"), plus: "Son of a Rotten Gambler" (Chip Taylor). Layin' To The Music" (Allan Clarke, Terry Sylvester).

The rest of the material naturally pales in comparison, but 1974's Hollies delivers likable-enough smiley face rock with the quintet's lilting trademark harmonies throughout. Luckily, the album maintains the Brits' peculiar pent-up energy, even in countrified hootenannies like "Rubber Lucy" (surprisingly not a companion to Roxy Music's blow-up doll ode)
