Message: 1 Date: Tue, 11 May 2004 11:58:05 -0700 From: Alan Gordon Subject: Hollies discography Hey folks: Is there a Hollies expert in here? I'm a big fan of the very early stuff. I have on CD "In The Hollies Style," "The EP Collection," "The Other Side Of The Hollies Plus," "Rarities," and the three Sundazed CDs. What I'm curious about is which other CDs do I need to have to have a fairly complete collection of their early output, and without too much duplication? You can get in touch with me off list. Thanx a bunch in advance, ~albabe -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

David Gates recorded a couple of singles for Del-Fi, including one that was credited to "The Country Boys" -- "The Okie Surfer" (Del-Fi 4245, June 1964) -- and I'm sure you also know he wrote many songs for Del-Fi artists (including Johnny Crawford) and played on a million sessions, too. I don't think he used aliases the way that Barry White did. I think it was his production of The Pleasure Faire's album (UNI 73009, 1967) that led to the formation of Bread, so he must have been doing a little lead vocalizin' in the studio, leading to them cutting a demo for David Anderle of Elektra, but I'm sure there are other people on this list more qualified to give more details.

I heard from a George Martin quote, that another reason RS was mixed wide with noting in the centre was that they were worried about people who may hear the mix in reduced MONO. Things that are panned in the centre appear louder when reduced which would wreck the balance. When Revolver came out they must have come to their senses and realised people who forked out for a stereo album are not likely to listen in mono. So that album was mixed track in the centre,vocals out either side (mostly). What I can not understand is When George Martin remixed RS for CD in 1987, why did did he mimick the original wide stereo version in stead of mixing it the way they did on the Yellow Submarine songtrack many years later. Nowhere man and Think for Yourself both sound better on that album. Richard -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
