As others have pointed out, this is a Hollies compilation CD. If you are looking for the 1969 album that contains such songs as "My Life Is Over With You" and "Don't Give Up Easily," you want the "Hollies Sing Hollies" CD. This is the UK album and contains the tracks deleted from "Hollies Sing Hollies" by the marketing morons at Epic Records in the U.S. when Epic released the album as "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother."

"Hollies Sing Hollies" is the second album recorded by the band with rhythm guitarist Terry Sylvester, who replaced Graham Nash after he left the band to form Crosby, Stills & Nash in 1968. "Hollies Sing Hollies" is a superlative album brimming with stunning vocal and instrumental performances by the band and peerless production by Hollies producer Ron Richards. Like other great Hollies songs from that era, the songs on "Hollies Sing Hollies" convey the Hollies' understanding of and appreciate for the trials and triumphs of romantic love, songs that will touch your heart and make you want to dance around the room singing with joy.

If the listing for this title shows the group in white suits against a black background, or if the seller doesn't describe the CD as an import digipak made by Magic Records of France, then it IS NOT the (previously) U.S. only "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother" album by THE HOLLIES. If the listing IS the digipak CD made by Magic Records of France, besides the original tune stack, you get 10 bonus tracks! Any negative reviews are left over from another the above mentioned CD of the same name which was just a compilation. I hate when Amazon has reviews for other items listed with the wrong one, but I guess when something has the same name it gets confusing considering the millions of items on their site! The track listing is:

Why Didn't You Believe / Don't Give Up Easily / Look At Life / Please Sign Your Letters / My Life Is Over With You /

Please Let Me Please / Do You Believe In Love / He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother / You Love `Cos You Like It /

Reflections Of A Time Long Past / Goodbye Tomorrow. BONUS TRACKS: 'Cos You Like To Love Me / Sorry Suzanne /

Not That Way At All / Soldier's Dilemma / Marigold-Gloria Swansong / Louisiana Man / She Looked My Way

Sorry Suzanne (Live Unreleased) / Settle Down (Live Unreleased) / He Ain't Heavy he's My Brother (Live).

Last but not least is the remastered sound. The heartfelt vocals, the exquisite harmonies, the mastery of their instruments and the solid song selection never sounded so good! A must have for the Hollies fan, and a surprising treat for the uninitiated!

got this for my brother's funeral it is awesome fits perfectly for the occassion considering he was murdered on the island of Issac Park found naked and no water in his lungs so he was killed then tossed into the ocean at a place where tiger sharks were so bad no one ever went there but to view the outlook. He was spotted by passerbys. Bobbing in the ocean. I guess the killers hoped he had been attacked by the sharks to get rid of every bit of evidence that he existed. This song came out when we were young and my brother had just got out of the Army during Vietnam years, 1969. The song is about the loss of a brother and the sadness that comes from an unexpected death. This will be played at his Military funeral. The CD came in new condition and was so inexpensive I had to lol at the only thing that was cheap in this entire deal of getting my brother home from Hawaii to KS.
