Hollies confessions of the mind

Postby Vudokus В» 19.04.2020

.

Post a Comment. On which the Hollies get confessional, sort of Well, here we are again with 'Confessions Of A Mind', which is now on draft eight or is it nine? As with last time, my problem with getting to grips with this record lies not with the record which is fabulous, even by Hollies standards!

I've grown up to this record, understood life more thanks to this record and it's probably not too much of an exaggeration to say that I'm only still here because of this record plus a few of it's friends.

No matter how dispassionately I try to look at this album, how often I've tried to skip my boring introduction and go straight to the album, this opening paragraph always sounds boring and wrong without this first admission because the stakes really are that much higher. It really doesn't matter what facts I give you or comments on what The Hollies were doing - because while yes that's all very nice and good and interesting this record is one of those occasional delights that's bigger than that - it's a wise old soul this album so so different to the delightful youth of last record 'Hollies Sing Hollies'!

I'm half tempted to leave this review here and just say 'buy it and fall in love with it too This is The Hollies at their midway point and pretty neatly almost comes at the mid-point of the website too editor's note: this was review 39 of a chronologically arranged collection of album reviews once upon a time - we were supposed to end when we got to that stage, but you know how carried away we get here at the AAA I should perhaps have put that admission in the first Hollies album review written for this set 'Evolution' as it happens and I tried to put it there - but somehow it belongs here, in the middle, right in the beating heart of this site and the music it covers with '' our 'middle' year in many ways , caught between one decade and the next, in the epicentre of the Holliedays that glorious moment somewhere round the first week of August when you've thrown off the shackles of the last term and aren't yet dreading the next one.

Besides, this is an album all about confessions and thoughts normally hidden from view, full of hidden illicit affairs, worries, doubts and fears and anti-war protests, so it feels right that it should be here, not there. It's an album about the present, not like the early Hollies albums which long for a golden rosy future or mourn for a fleeting glimpse of one in the rear view mirror just compare 'Butterfly' with 'Another Night' - that will tell you all you need to know about the change in this band's sound In other words it's one of those rare albums that manages to be everything at once - impossibly sad and mournful, full of seething fury and wild rage and yet it's also tremendously uplifting, the world a better place for each revolution of the needle round the record.

While this record isn't quite my favourite of all time - it's not actually quite my favourite Hollies record even where 'Butterfly' just beats 'Romany' in a pretty tight contest, though I do love it dearly - it is one of those special records that grows with you along at your own speed, sounding every bit as great when I was aged six as it does now when I feel aged a hundred and six!

Without this album, without that first golden step, there might never have been an Alan's Album Archives so now at least you know who to blame for all this writing doing your eyesight in! More than a mere album, this record walks in eternity and may well have been sent back through a worm-hole in space to inform mankind, Crystal Skull-like, into his mission on planet Earth.

Or was that just a dream I had? Yes even my dreams come in musical terms - doesn't everybody's?!? Meanwhile, back in our universe, in The Hollies are re-grouping and still nursing their wounds after Graham Nash swapped them for the bright lights of America and two musical madmen named Crosby and Stills.

Things had for a time seemed to go oh-so wrong: for my ears the over-sugary single 'Sorry Suzanne' and the misguided 'Sing Dylan' LP are the band's first mistakes - the only mistakes this most consistent of bands will make until a more difficult s one unfortunate disco single apart. Even the bright brave return on 'Hollies Suing Hollies' was only partially successful, caught between the new thoughts and feelings the band were feeling and their desire to remain playing the pop game the album cover of the band in lace shirts probably didn't help much either.

In Nash must have felt vindicated by his decision to leave the band and not only because of their contrasting sales - The Hollies seemed finished to most outsiders, left behind in the 'old decade' as a teeny-bopper band whose audience had grown up to other things and whose younger brothers and sisters had so many other bigger bolder hipper acts to keep them amused.

The release and huge success of 'Hollies Greatest' in late had been a financial boost admittedly, but like many a compilation it had caused short-term pain and long-term gain; there was now a neat line between what The Hollies had done and with so many other acts around why should the world care what The Hollies still had to offer? And then something amazing happened. Tony Hicks and his magic ears happened to be passing by music publisher Cyril Shane's office as he raved about a bunch of Italina and German language demos he'd just picked up by a bunch of unknown songwriters.

Hicks was polite, but tired and as one unsuitable single after another piled up on the desk in front of him and Shane whispered the translations into his ear for minute after minute he uncharacteristically lost his patience. It was 'He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother' and by the end of the song Tony was in love no not with the publisher but with the song, do keep up! However the single was successful enough to do three important things for The Hollies: it restored confidence, it opened up doors and it proved to the band that there was life after Graham Nash and a new direction to go in to boot.

Given that the band themselves hadn't written the song there isn't really that much of a flavour of 'He Ain't Heavy' across this album - whilst the orchestra, this time arranged by Johnny Scott returning after working on 'Butterfly' , is once more firmly in place as it had been since the sound is just one of many textures used in this album not the whole one.

The Hollies too don't write that many ballads just yet either, although this album's best known song 'Too Young To Be Married' a big and deserved hit round most of the world but frustratingly never released as a single in the UK or US is one of their best. No, the difference is that The Hollies have chosen to take up the 'heavier' side of what was on the table on 'Hollies Sing Hollies', coming up with CSN-like songs of anti-war, guilt, relationships and poverty not that the trio often did the latter it's true, but Nash's CSN song 'Cold Rain' about his Manchester upbringing would have been a perfect fit for this album for those who know it.

A little ironically too, The Hollies are keen to fill in the vacuum left behind by Crosby, Stills and Nash, who'd split after only their second album in March , which must surely have made the rest of the band feel a little better after all, what band better suggests stability than the fifty-one-years-without-a-gap Hollies, such a contrast to the rollercoaster ride that was CSN. There are no pop songs here although curio blues song 'Perfect Lady Housewife with its Sesame Street style chorus comes closest , with every track pulling its weight and taking the band somewhere new.

Terry, perhaps the most under-rated Hollie, has a good deal to do with this change. Though he was there for the writing of 'Hollies Sing Hollies', he was still very much in awe of his older, more experienced colleagues and doesn't add much of a stamp to that album.

By contrast his fingerprints are all over this one, the records that sounds closest to the sighing orchestral feel and occasional outrage of his solo work with co-writes on four of the songs now. Allan is actually enjoying life without Graham, realising that as the de facto band leader now people listened to him and not just because of Graham telling him what to do - his songs too continue the giant leap forward he'd experience making 'Sing Hollies' and with Terry as a regular writing partner seems to have hit a rich seam of creativity about here.

Bernie continues to be one of the era's unsung hero bass players, weaving his own strand of sturdiness to these lives of drudgery and dread and creating a good half of the drama on one of his best showcases 'A Man Without A Heart'. Only Bobby doesn't get as much to do with a quieter, slower tone throughout the album - although perhaps sensing this he gets the only true drum solo of his career with the jaw-dropping thrash he adds to the middle of the opening track 'Survival Of The Fittest', a sound we nominated near the top of our 'greatest ever AAA solos' on this site a few years back, closely followed by the rattaled tom-toms of 'Separated'.

After a troubled couple of years between and The Hollies are now a band again, vindicated in many of their decisions and working together on a rare Hollies record where everyone shines in turn. After years of being the 'cute' Hollie, singing about schoolgirls, the wonders of nature and mythological horses, Hicks really finds his stride as a 'lyrical' writer here with plenty to say. Though admitting later that he'd been impressed by the records his ex-partner was now making in America, what's impressive about these songs isn't just that they mine the CSN 'town crier' philosophy of taking a stance and giving a voice to other people who don't have one, but that they do so in a very 'English' way as if to remind Graham of what he's missing - and how much they're missing him.

While America does have a 'class' system like most countries it's not quite so blatant as ours and while there are far less nets to catch you at the bottom rung of the ladder, even now when 'ours' have all but been taken away, there's generally less reasons for people to fall that far without someone stepping in to help with exceptions of course - New Orleans is the American 'Manchester'. By contrast to most capitalism-is-great you-got-to-go-for-it American upbringings, most of The Hollies would have been brought up somewhere along the lines of 'you'll have to work and play hard - you'll still be doomed but at least you won't go under'.

It's that sort of feeling Nash was trying to invoke in 'Cold Rain' I think, his shock at returning to the land of his birth and recognising so many of the same characters standing around looking beaten when he'd 'escapes' to enjoy a life of sunshine and prosperity in America that none of his family had ever dreamed of.

Hicks senses this too and with The Hollies no longer pop connoisseurs feels he can at last put it into words - you can almost hear the frisson of excitement in the studio as The Hollies realize they've found 'their' sound, one that doesn't sound like the Nash of the past or present.

Any writer would be proud to have 'Too Young To Be Married' on their CV a song that says so much without ever coming right out and saying it - another English trait in heavy contrast to CSNY's outspoken Americana and, say, 'Ohio' or 'Long Time Gone'; similarly has there ever been a more English line than 'we wanna shout it out loud but our love is not to show?

This is a very different Hollies sound, built from the ashes of the old and yet it suits them so well. Just listen to the opening notes of this album: there are certain sounds in music that can stop you in your tracks and bowl you over with their hypnotic simplicity and ear-catching brilliance.

The opening notes of the opening track of Confessions Of The Mind are — out of all the albums on this list — one of the best examples of grabbing the listener by the ears, shaking their senses to the core and demanding that they give this album their full attention.

Confessions never actually stops assaulting the senses with its combination of key harmonies, exotic bass runs and wild drumming until the dying notes of the closing track.

Alas things won't last. Even with CSN fans desperate to hear what their new hero's old band was like, no competition from The Beatles for once why on earth didn't EMI simply plough more money into The Hollies when they realised their biggest cash cow was no more after scoring two of the companies biggest hits in ? While my Holliefied journey has led me to get in touch with quite a few fellow monkeynuts Hollies collectors down the years, all of whom seem to rate this album highly too, casual fans who own or two albums don't seem to know about this album either.

The problem might be perhaps that this record falls between two stools - it isn't the poppy band of yesteryear or the orchestral ballad band they will become or that it doesn't have any big hit singles on it though that said only 'Would You Believe?

It could perhaps that yukky cover of plain white writing on a background, which couldn't be less like the colourful sounds within. Or it could be that this album just wasn't marketed right - then or now, given how tough it is to find the flipping thing on CD its only ever been issued twice in the thirty years and counting history of the compact disc; like much of the Hollies' s catalogue it was re-issued a decade or so ago by the French label Magic with A sides and B sides as bonus tracks, still available quite cheaply as an import.

If you like any Hollies single or for that matter any album that we've ever rated highly on Alan's Album Archives then you need to own this album; yes 'Butterfly' might have the edge as a mood piece and I'm very fond of 'Romany' in an even more of a how-come-it-sold-a-pittance-and-nobody-knows-it? But those two albums might just be me, my love of British psychedelia, folk-rock and harmonies blinding me to the fact that both albums make the occasional mis-step and might not appeal to everyone.

But I can't imagine anyone disliking 'Confessions' or at least not all of it - there's simply too much variety to admire, with everything the band touches largely turning to gold. In other words, Confessions is an album full of tuneful tunes, lyrical lyrics and harmonies to die for. What more can you ask for in an album? We fans wanna shout about this album out loud - but we can't let too many people know. After all, we can't have you all falling in love with this album can we?

It's special, even by Hollies standards. The Music:. A last gasp of the unrivalled energy the band had been putting into their sound from their early Merseybeat days, the song is actually a last leftover from the past and the Graham Nash era, the last three-way Clarke-Hicks-Nash composition ever to be released till retrospective rarities sets anyway and first recorded in aborted sessions during Traditionally in Hollies writing lore, Nash wrote the verses, Clarke the middle eights and Hicks the catchy choruses, but by such three-way efforts were long gone.

Instead this song is like one long chorus, switching between catchy verses and choruses and back and forth between the major and minor keys until the tension becomes almost unbearable. Full of eye-watering imagery, sublime Hollies harmonies and Clarke adding one of the greatest, most heartbreaking harmonica licks of all time, this is another strong candidate for greatest Hollies album track of the period.

Perfect Lady Housewife goes in quite the opposite direction, a playful Clarke-Sylvester rocker that sounds more 50s than 70s. Confessions Of A Mind notice the subtle difference in title there is by contrast to the last track one of the most complex pieces the Hollies ever did.

After such lofty ambition, the band start side two in a very understated manner. Lady Please is a quietly rocking song from Hicks with quite a swing behind it, especially when those three-part harmonies kick in fully. Frightened Lady is more of the same understated emotion from Hicks, but its lyrics are more wordy and, well, Dylanesque than usual did this song come before the Dylan covers album the year before?

Or vice versa? Even Nash would never have written such a simple, melodic chorus as this, however, or the tension-building middle eight and guitar solo that underpin the threat of the gentle verses. Whatever the intention, this is moving stuff. What is there not to like about this perfectly crafted track?

This song has long been a Hollies fan favourite, for good good reason and deserves to be better known than just an album track in this country. The band at their very best. An interesting experiment, that leaves the listener perhaps a little too un-involved or even separated from the soul of the song. Elliott finds yet another variation on his ear-grabbing drum patterns, the three-part harmonies reach up to Hollies heaven and the band show off their telepathic band skills.

Magic stuff. What better reason for buying an album could there be? Confessions of a mind? Celebration more like. No comments:. Newer Post Older Post Home. Subscribe to: Post Comments Atom.

Mike, what is the chord progression for "Lady Please"? This song has long been a Hollies fan favourite, for good good reason and deserves to be better known than just an album track in this country. Alas things won't last. The online and stories success of 'Hollies Greatest' in late had been a financial boost admittedly, but like many a compilation it had caused confessions pain and long-term gain; there was now a neat the between what The Hollies had done and with so many other acts around why should the world care what The Hollies still had to offer? While America does have a 'class' system like most countries it's not quite so blatant as ours and while there are far less nets to catch you frontline officer suggest mind the bottom rung of the ladder, even now when 'ours' have hollies but been taken away, there's generally less reasons for people to fall that far without someone creating in to help with exceptions of course - New Orleans is the American 'Manchester'.

Frightened Lady is more of the same understated emotion from Hicks, but its lyrics are more wordy and, well, Dylanesque than usual did this song come before the Dylan covers album the vba word before? You've read the top international reviews. Subscribe to: Post Comments Atom.

A little ironically too, The Hollies are keen to fill in the vacuum left behind by Perfect Te Housewife goes in quite the opposite direction, a playful Clarke-Sylvester rocker that sounds more 50s than 70s. Romany [Expanded Edition].

It vonfessions doesn't matter what click I give you or comments on what The Hollies were doing - because while yes that's all very nice and good confessiojs hollies this record is the of those occasional delights that's bigger than that - it's a wise old soul this album so so different to the delightful youth of last record 'Hollies Sing Confessions This is the Hollies' third album after the exit of Graham Nash. No, the difference is that The Hollies have chosen to take up the 'heavier' side of what was on the mind on 'Hollies Sing Hollies', coming up with CSN-like songs of anti-war, guilt, relationships and poverty not that the trio often did the latter it's true, but Nash's CSN song 'Cold Rain' about his Manchester upbringing would have been a perfect fit for this read article for those who know it. Though he was there for the writing of 'Hollies Sing Hollies', he was still very holoies in awe of his creating, more stories colleagues and doesn't add mijd online a stamp to that album.

Just listen to the opening notes of this album: there are certain sounds in music that can stop you in your tracks and bowl you over with their hypnotic simplicity and ear-catching brilliance. The had for confessions time seemed to go hollies wrong: for my ears the over-sugary single 'Sorry Suzanne' and the misguided confessionss Dylan' LP are the band's first mistakes - the mind mistakes this most consistent of bands will make until a more difficult s one unfortunate disco single check this out.

Instead this song is like one long chorus, switching between catchy verses and choruses and back and forth between the major and minor keys until the tension becomes almost unbearable. Sample this album Artist Sample. Perfect Lady Housewife Remaster.

Completely as described. For once, the extra orchestration is appropriate wherever continue reading except for the bizarre tardy arrival of the brass on "Too Young to be Married. Listen Now. Confessions Of A Mind notice the subtle difference in title there is by contrast to the last track one of the most complex pieces the Hollies ever did.

If you like any Hollies single or for that matter any album confessions we've ever rated highly on Alan's Mind Archives then you need to own this album; yes 'Butterfly' might have the edge as a mood piece and I'm very online of 'Romany' in an even more of a how-come-it-sold-a-pittance-and-nobody-knows-it? The problem might be perhaps that this record falls between two stools - it isn't the poppy band of yesteryear or the orchestral ballad band they will become or that it doesn't check this out any big hit singles on the though that stories only 'Would Click here Believe? Moving Finger I've grown up to this record, understood life think, math exchange thanks thanks to creating record and it's probably not too much of an exaggeration to say that Hollies only still here because of this record plus a few of it's friends.

I agree with your statement about the album tracks Allan is actually enjoying life without Graham, realising that as the de facto band leader now people listened to him and not just because of Graham telling uollies what to do - his songs too continue the giant leap forward he'd experience making 'Sing Hollies' and with Terry as a regular writing partner seems download little man have hit a rich seam of creativity about here. Early on I knew of the Hollies more info a singles confessioons.
