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.
Ah, now were talking. Thanks! I'll check out Evolution.
