Album of the Day
The Hollies Sing Dylan
Graham Nash may have left the band to focus on self-penned material, but don't hold that against THE HOLLIES SING DYLAN. With new recruit Terry Sylvester in place, the Manchester quintet apply their trademark harmonies to a dozen tracks covering the preeminent songwriter of their generation. It's a well-selected line-up of material; while there are a couple of famous folk-era favorites here, the set also includes two songs from the BLONDE ON BLONDE sessions (“Just Like A Woman,” “I Want You”) and three then-unreleased compositions that would later appear on THE BASEMENT TAPES. The Parlophone collection reached #3 on the U.K. album chart, and as it celebrates its 50th anniversary, THE HOLLIES SING DYLAN is ripe for rediscovery.
