O.K., it's a cheesy music biz term, but we need more Hollies CD or L.P. "Product" !. It could be any of the following:

1.A new album by the 21st century Hollies (hopefully with some original Tony Hicks or Bobby Elliot songs)

2. More remastered vinyl or High Resolution downloads of 1960's or 1970's Hollies albums. The remasters of "Evolution" & "Butterfly" sounded superb. I opted to buy the vinyl, since the high resolution downloads were priced abnormally high.

3.A 4th Hollies CD boxed set including the recordings after 1988.

4.An archival rarities CD containing the remaining useable unreleased 1960's, 1970's & 1980's unreleased songs and versions.

Whatever it may be, give us more Hollies PRODUCT !

I vote for a new album. Some of us are absolutely greedy for Hollies' music.

We can't ever get enough.

A live DVD of the current Hollies ought to be no problem as plenty of shows are recorded now

a shame that more of the footage of vintage Hollies live performances over the years has not been compiled either to form a retrospective DVD featuring each 'era' of the band in turn - a number of live 'specials' and TV show performances survive and could make up a great collection

while a new studio album by the current Hollies hopefully including more original songs written by the band and a decent 'Rarities 2' CD set, plus a 1981-1993 era compilation covering the latter 'Allan Clarke Years' of studio and a few live tracks would fill an important gap in the group's recording history

All would be VERY welcome indeed by many Hollies fans and I'm sure plenty of the wider public too



but as I said I fully expect more hits compilations are the most likely...(I just hope they prove me wrong !)

Gee, you are correct. Another 1-CD compilation is coming (from Warner/Rhino) in March. Not even one rarity or unreleased track to tempt collectors. Despite the quality of The Hollies' music, this disc is a waste of plastic.

Maybe our dreams of more Hollies archival "Product" are going to come true!

Former EMi Records Group/North America compiler/engineer Ron Furmanek is working on some new Hollies projects that will include archive tracks from both the Nash & Sylvester years. These may include CD+LP sets. This would explain why Warner/Parlophone halted Hollies vnyl activity after the (excellent) newly remastered vinyl & download remasters of "Butterfly" & "Evolution. Furmanek was the compiler & remixer of the U.S.A.-only Hollies "30th Anniversary Collection" 3-CD set which featured stereo remixes of most Hollies non-L.P. B-sides, but Furmanek's remixing work with the Hollies and other 1960's EMI artists did not find favor with EMI/UK executives and was released only in the U.S.A.
But, now, under Warner/Parlophone, it is a new day, and Furmanek, who in recent decades had worked with his brother in the business of licensing vintage rock music film footage, has been lured back to the field of CD compiling. What better place to start than with the music of The Hollies? Furmanek has claimed to have more than two dozen unreleased Hollies tracks from the Nash era, and an equal quantity of tracks from the Sylvester era. I had always wondered if there were more instances similar to "We're Through" & "Magic Woman Touch" where The Hollies tried alternate arrangements of a song.
Gimme more Hollies "Product"! YEAH.

We can hope for some decent new mixes of known unissued tracks such as the original Nash version of 'Survival of The Fittest' from August 1968 and the Sylvester version of 'Wings' from March 1970

in addition there are earlier unreleased sixties tracks with Nash, possibly including some unknown to us tracks (?)

plus the abandoned 'Hollies Sing Country' tracks with Sylvester such as 'The Race is On', 'Kentucky Woman' and 'Dang Me'....

and later seventies tracks such as 'Salvation Band', 'Father Machine', 'Born To Run', 'Is it True ?', 'I'd Like To Be That Man' etc

they also cut 'Angel of The Morning' early in 1969 before Terry Sylvester was recruited probably featuring Allan Clarke on high harmony vocal

from the brief Mike Rickfors era there are a few unissued songs such as 'On The Summer Side of Life'


there are some later tracks from the 1980's / early 90's that have not appeared on CD that could be included too plus the 1986 single that never was the apparently forgotten 'Hard To Forget' !

I recall seeing a television performance of "Hard to Forget" on YouTube. Believe me: The song was easy to forget.

There's been no further word as to whether Ron Furmanek is still working on Hollies archival projects. Have these projects been abandoned?
