Well if you insist. The early Hollies discography is just the typical British beat pop typical of that time, where a number of bands jumped on the Beatles bandwagon, they also had far too much covers stuff on those albums to really attract me. Their most interesting period was their psycehedlic period which started around 1967 and the album Evolution is a good album and probably the peak of their output. Again they were following in the footsteps of the Beatles, Beach Boys and the Byrds in going psychedelic here. As for the later stuff, I wouldn't bother with as Graham Nash had left the band. In hindsight the Hollies are a band that people seem to get all nostalgic over, but the reality is that they were somewhat limited. The biggest Hollies fan on here seems to be Il Duce, so hopefully he can recommend you some stuff.
