I don't think there has been any marketing at all.


To be honest, I was relatively impressed with the adverts for the album/tour which I encountered in the music press and in national newspapers, just seems that EMI did not follow it through for whatever reason.

It's such a shame when you consider the really great releases in the past, such as the 'At Abbey Road' series which was an absolute gem and yet received little publicity in the music press - after all, how many bands would have canned great material like 'Schoolgirl' and 'Samuel' only to dust them off decades later and add contemporary overdubs and release them for hard-core fans? It was moments like this which made being a Hollies collector really great.

It certainly seems a shame that EMI have let this one slip through the net so as to speak.
I hope they don't leave it too long before they release a new album, Rock and Roll songs as someone suggested sounds great Very Happy
Maybe even some tibetan chants James!!!

Err what's this? Is this true, plaster casts made of male private area's?

How about so Damn Beautiful was that released as a CD single or a download? Did it chart?


It totally baffles me how noboby seems to know the status of SDB. Do you think the Hollies themselves have a notion? As relates to marketing SDB and Suspended Animation....please don't get me started on that subject. Shame Shame EMI!

According to this article (I think it was in UK Music Magazine Mojo) - apparently a few bands took part in this 'project' by a sculptor. I think something was mentioned either on here or in the Hollies Yahoogroup about it a good while back.

Cynthia Plastercaster was a legendary groupie from the 60s who used to make plaster casts of (cover the eyes of your younguns! This is a family forum!) *whispers* genitalia of rock stars. It was just the thing to do...kind of a status symbol to be asked (kind of like being on the cover of the Rolling Stone, except it, erhm, wasn't!).

She's still in doing it years later apparently! Her official website is www.cynthiaplastercaster.com, but I found this news article even more interesting:

http://www.contactmusic.com/new/xmlfeed.nsf/mndwebpages/plastercaster.s%20hall%20of%20fame%20honour

Apparently the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland wants her to donate her collection!

Which makes me respect the Sex Pistols even more for turning down their honours this year...Yeah, show all this respect for the plastercasts of dead rock stars's appendages, but ignore the Hollies for inclusion year after year...

Hey, stop the interesting threads! I'm supposed to be at work!

The Rock and Roll Hall of Shame is what it should be called. It has zero credibility with me.

she had some dubious fame...and there is a reference to her "exploits" in the last line of 10c.c.'s song "The Hospital Song" on their first album, which ends with the line....
"....And when I go, I'll die of "plastercasting" love...."
