Rock 'n Roll, Classic Rock & 60s Rock Recommendations
 
This forum doesn't have one of these so I figured, since I'm looking for recommendations, I'd start one up.

To start things off... anyone have any thoughts on a good Hollies album to start with?

Just listen to crosby, stills, Nash and young. Graham nash was a member of the hollies. I prefer CSNY over the Hollies any day

The debut album is great but Deja Vu is a classic.

I've already done both of those things. Now I'm looking for Hollies recommendations.

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.

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

Yes, and Butterfly as well, which was the final album with Graham Nash. For Certain Because (1966) might also be worth a listen. While not exactly great, it was their first album of all-original songs and features some fine melodies and fun, offbeat instrumentations.

Hopefully you guys can help me out with this one.. I am looking to buy my first Rolling Stones album but I don't particularly know where is the best place to begin. I was thinking Beggars Banquet. Any suggestions?
