If you hung with The Hollies well after their hits-laden years, then this next bit of news will be of long cool delight to you. The Hollies have been through the ripe years of Graham Nash, who, along with Allan Clarke, produced many of the memorable songs and LPs that are still enjoyed today. Also, Bobby Elliot, and Tony Hicks, who have stayed with the band forever. And while today’s Hollies are Elliot and Hicks, it’s admirable that they have maintained the ship when all others have left it.

The news is that a Hollies 6CD Box collection is being planned for March 17 (UK), and March 24 (US). The set is being called Head Out Of Dreams: The Complete Hollies – August 1973 – May 1988. In this massive box, the recorded output of the band from 1973-1988 including their massive hit, “The Air That I Breathe” will feature with various periods of remastering, none of it new. The included book should be extraordinary for this period of The Hollies, which will include their magnificent 1974 self-titled long player that also provided their UK hit, “The Day That Curly Billy Shot Down Crazy Sam McGee”. Essentially, this box will provide a beautiful one stop collection for completists, and fans without some of the albums that are on this set.

The CDs include bonus tracks not on the original but have been previously released on other releases.

Thanks, Parlophone!
