Heard the one about the scruffy blond git who ran into a quartet of proper foppish dandies?

.... Nope, me neither.

Anyway, the great news is that Parlophone is getting back on a carousel with the release of a wonderful new 5-CD Box-Set from The Hollies - consisting of a whopping 92 songs including a number of previously released rarities.

The snappily titled Changin’ Times: The Complete Hollies January ’69 – March ’73 follows up the label’s even more snappily titled 2011 collection The Clarke, Hicks & Nash Years: The Complete Hollies: April 1963 – October 1968.

This new release collects every commercially-released album track and non-album single from the band recorded between January 1969 and March 1973, for a total of a 92 songs over the course of six studio albums from Hollies Sings Dylan (1969) through to the rare Out on the Road (1973).

Changin’ Times finds The Hollies for the first time without Graham Nash. The founding member departed the group in 1968 to begin his famous Southern California odyssey with David Crosby and Stephen Stills. Nash was replaced by Terry Sylvester (The Escorts, The Swingin’ Blue Jeans).
