Yeah, I like them too. Singer Allan Clarke quit only a couple of years ago because his voice gave up more or less. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Tony Hicks is still around with the Hollies and so is the drummer (sorry, forgot his name).

So glad there's a Hollies thread, thanks pc31!

I'm obsessing over them the last week or so. Got their greatest hits. Trying to sing all the parts (in the car, to avoid "disturbing the peace" charges  :)), Graham Nash sings SOOOO high! I think in general they sing a fourth or a fifth above the Beatles. I think in terms of harmonies, they are equal to, or even .... nah, can't bring myself to say it, but they are GOOD!

"Hey Carrie Anne ..."  :)

Still they made good songs in the 70s

The Baby features Swedish Vocalist Mikael Rickfors. This song was their only real commercial success while Allan Clarke had left to persue a solo career.

I liked 'The Baby', but it was so un-Hollies like. Wasn't it the only thing he recorded with them?

No, there's a few more. Magic Woman Touch is one.

I'm a little confused about that high harmony...

In the 1964 show by pc31 (where they did "Rocking Robin" and "Just One Look"), Graham Nash didn't seem to be on stage.

Yet that high harmony sounded just about the same as on my Greatest Hits CD.

Did he come on board later, for their monster hits (Carry Anne, Bus Stop, Carousel, Look Through Any Window)? Or are some of those hits recorded with his predecessor singing, not Graham Nash?

And, OT a bit, it seems like there must have been a queue of excellent VERY high harmony singers around ... I always thought Paul was pretty high, but those guys make him seem like a baritone in comparison ... no falsetto ... incredible!

Alexis,

Wasn't that Graham Nash on the far right playing electric guitar?  I know he was one of the original members and left the group in 1968.

Here's a photo of the Hollies with Graham Nash 2nd on the left:
