British Invasion blogging

I've been on a Hollies kick lately. Truly an underrated band--perhaps the most grossly underrated group of the 1960s. They're a link between the purest of pure British invasion pop and the power pop artists of the 1970s (Raspberries, Big Star et al.). They were also great singers and musicians. The hits continued even after Graham Nash quit the band (a proposed Dylan cover album was the last straw before he hightailed it to Laurel Canyon).

From the 1960s, "I Can't Let Go." This should've been a huge hit in the USA.

From the 1970s, "Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress."
