Product Description

The Hollies were one of the most successful British groups of the sixties and early seventies and have continued to perform up to the present day. Look Through Any Window tells the story of their peak years from 1963 to 1975 when the band clocked up 27 UK Top 40 singles, 17 of which were Top 10s. They were also part of the British Invasion led by the Beatles that stormed the US charts in the sixties and scored hit singles in many other countries around the world. This DVD is the history of the Hollies told through newly filmed interviews with band members Allan Clarke, Graham Nash, Tony Hicks and Bobby Elliott and fantastic vintage footage of the Hollies performing their classic tracks in full. / Bonus Features: Option to play the 22 complete song performances without the interviews. / TRACK LISTING: 1) Baby That s All 2) Rockin Robin 3) Little Lover 4) Just One Look 5) Here I Go Again 6) I m Alive 7) Look Through Any Window 8) I Can t Let Go 9) Bus Stop 10) Stop Stop Stop 11) On A Carousel 12) Carrie Anne 13) Dear Eloise 14) King Midas In Reverse 15) Jennifer Eccles 16) Wings 17) Do The Best You Can 18) Listen To Me 19) Sorry Suzanne 20) He Ain t Heavy, He s My Brother 21) Long Cool Woman In A Black Dress 22) The Air That I Breathe

If the bands that composed the British Invasion of the 1960s were put in a pyramid, one (admittedly subjective) appraisal would have the Beatles alone at the very top--"the toppermost of the poppermost," as John Lennon would say. Just below them would be the Rolling Stones, the Kinks, and the Who, followed by a group including the Animals, the Zombies… and the Hollies, the subject of this compilation of more than 20 performances (many of them live, almost all of them complete) from their glory years. Those who know the Hollies as the band Graham Nash was in before he joined forces with Stephen Stills and David Crosby, or who are familiar only with their MOR-ish post-Nash singles "The Air That I Breathe," "Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress," and "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother," are in for a treat. Like so many English groups of the era, they started out playing soul and R&B covers ("Rockin' Robin" and "Just One Look," both from a '64 concert, are two good examples here). But the influence of rock 'n' roll pioneers the Everly Brothers and Buddy Holly, who inspired Hollies lead singer Allan Clarke, lead guitarist Tony Hicks, and Nash, was already apparent in the threesome's soaring harmonies, which were further showcased in brilliant pop singles like "Here I Go Again," "I'm Alive," "Look Through Any Window," and "Bus Stop" (all by other songwriters, including Graham Gouldman, later of 10cc), and later in such Clarke-Hicks-Nash compositions as "Stop Stop Stop," "Carrie-Anne," and "On a Carousel" (the DVD contains several minutes of footage of the group at work on the latter in the same Abbey Road studio where the Beatles recorded all of their important work). Recorded in the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Yugoslavia, and Holland, these performances are in black & white and color, with superb remastered sound and generally top-notch visuals; new interviews with the three principals and drummer Bobby Elliott are insightful and full of details. This is another outstanding entry in Reelin' in the Years Productions' British Invasion series; titles by the Small Faces, Herman's Hermits, Gerry and the Pacemakers, and Dusty Springfield are also recommended. --Sam Graham

I saw this film last night, 9/22/11, at a local L.A. theater. It was followed by a Q&A with Graham Nash, Alan Clarke, the film's producer/director David Peck and the film's interviewer, Rob Bowman.

As Peck explained, the hallmark of his work is the inclusion of full tunes and this film is no exception. It features over 20 full songs; some are from lip-synched perfs while many are live from various TV shows.

The interviews with Nash, Clarke, Hicks and Elliot were all full of details.

If you're remotely a fan of this band, get this DVD. And if you're looking for the best CD compilation of theirs, get the Raven label release. It's an Aussie import and the sound is the best.

Every one (yes, EVERY one) of the 36+ DVDs I've seen (and reviewed) from Reelin' in the Years productions (including four Jazz Icons sets, a few American Folk Blues Festival volumes, the Motown Greats, Stax Story and the sole Folk Icons DVD of Pete Seeger) have been superb! Last year Producers David Peck, Phil Galloway, `Tom Gulotta and Rob Bowman produced a four volume set called The British Invasion. Another gem (see my review on Amazon)! Now they have added to the BI series with this DVD on the career of The Hollies (known to younger fans as a seminal 1960s pop group, and to younger fans as the group that started Graham Nash's career).

As with the other volumes in the BI series, Peck and his cohorts set out to find and license the best quality prints of performances by the band, and then sent Bowman out to do contemporary interviews with the band members, which form the fabric of the documentary, by weaving the interviews (all done in 2010) with the 22 COMPLETE performances. The interviews were done with Nash, lead vocalist Allan Clarke (who was Nash's best friend from the age of six!), guitarist Tony Hicks and drummer Bobby Elliott. (Though the band consisted of five members, the bassist changed a few times and none of those musicians were interviewed.).

The interviews are insightful and honest and you'll learn a lot from them (along with some additional facts in Ben Fong-Torres' essay in the 12-page booklet inserted in the package. (Another standard for RITY releases.)

Many of the performances are probably being seen by fans for the first time. While a couple are from Brit and US TV ("This Is Tom Jones", "The New Music Express Winners Concert") the majority are from oddball places like The Split Festival (in Croatia!) and shows titled "Rooster" and "supersonic".

I also saw the preview at the Aero in Santa Monica and, I must say, I've never seen this kind of thing done any better. The performances are COMPLETE (no talking heads talking over them) and the interview segments with Clarke, Nash, Hicks and Elliot are excellent.

I was surprised to see so much LIVE footage of the Hollies. I've always liked the Hollies but I've tended to underrate them a bit in the midst of their formidible peers. This film changed my mind. The group was an incredible live act. Tony Hicks is an excellent guitarist (something I never paid much attention to before) and Bobby Elliot is a powerful and creative drummer (ditto). The vocals are, of course, peerless.

If you are British Invasion fan, you will LOVE this film and your respect and admiration for the Hollies will grow astronomically (as mine did).

Isn't it great to have something new from the Hollies after all these years. I've collected just about every cd issue from the band over the years. I didn't think there was anything left, but Reelin in the Years has certainly delivered. This is a must have for any Hollies fan. I echo some of the other reviews that point out the gap in the post Nash material, but just maybe, there is more out there for a volume 2. It would have been nice to include some footage from the reunion tour with Graham Nash in the 80's. Somebody must have shot that, as the Hollies Alive cd is from that same tour. Short comments on each track:
1.) Baby That's All, the color reproduction is awesome, especially considering it's one of the oldest performances!
2.) Rockin Robin, is equally good in good old B&W.
3.) Little Lover, the color film is grainy with this rare track and features classic 60's dance moves. The outfits they wear are like what Brian Epstein picked for the Beatles.
4.) Just One Look, even in mono is a good clean pop track.
5.) Here I Go Again, Beautiful color video' It's 60's pop.
6.) I'm Alive, obviously a voice dub, but still a classic B&W video.
7.) Look Thru Any Window, Looks like it's a filmed from TV process. Has a raw feel with dancers.
8.) I Can't Let Go, Excellent, clean rock, Alan dances like Roger Daultry.
9.) Bus Stop, It's a little raw as well, but has a good guitar solo. Tony's banjo strum demonstration is great!
10.) Stop Stop Stop, Could easily be a Monkees song. Grahams commentary on 2 track to 4 track to 8 track technology is insightful.
11.)On a Carousel, To me, it's the quintissential 60's pop song. The Abbey Road studio film has a Beach Boy's Pet Sounds sessions feel to it with the vocal harmonies.
