The Hollies have celebrated their 50th anniversary with a great value 3-CD collection titled “The Hollies – 50 at Fifty”. The set contains 50 tracks, including classic hits, standout album tracks, live recordings, and a brand new song for 2014 titled “Skylarks”.
“The Hollies – 50 at Fifty” is a belated release, as the 50th anniversary was last year, but “50 at Fifty-One” wouldn’t have been a very snappy title.
