Review: Look Through Any Window 1963-1975 - The Hollies

Wonderful collection of video clips featuring The Hollies in a historical format.

By , Columnist

The Hollies were an important part of the rock scene back in the ‘60s and early ‘70s. With their infectious pop tunes like “Bus Stop”, “On a Carousel”, “Carrie-Anne”, and post-Nash heavies like “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother”, “Long Cool Woman In A Black Dress”, and “The Air That I Breathe”, The Hollies left an indelible mark.  But there were more songs than just those. The band never really called it quits but after “The Air That I Breathe” they never regained the charts in as commanding a manner as they were used to.

The Hollies: Look Through Any Window 1963-1975 is part of the growing DVD series "The British Invasion," which have previously celebrated The Small Faces, Herman’s Hermits, Gerry & the Pacemakers, and Dusty Springfield in video collections and interviews of early rock giants. The series boasts of song video clips from a wide variety of sources, interspersed with discussion from various members of the band. There is also extra footage included to make the sets a further value.

The Hollies: Look Through Any Window 1963-1975 offers cleaned-up videos of 22 live performances featuring their most important songs. If that weren’t reason enough for Hollies fans to grab this reasonably priced DVD, then perhaps the addition of a 12-page booklet filled with memorabilia, photos, and a lengthy essay from Ben Fong-Torres will sweeten the deal.

The bonus of bypassing the interviews and watching just the videos by themselves is a nice touch. If you’re a Hollies fan, this historical collection is a must have set.
