The Hollies needed a decent follow up to If I Needed Someone's failure to ignite the charts. Not a huge hit by their usual standards. I Can't Let Go was a good cover and 66 I think was their best year for 45s.
As for their albums, I'd say that Butterfly and Evolution stand out.

Their best IMO. Underappreciated albums both, self-written also. Concur with you regarding their '66 45s output (including that classic among classics, "Bus Stop" but also another Clarke/Hicks/Nash gem, "Stop, Stop, Stop"), but 1964 and 1965 weren't mean years for them in that department either ("We're Through", "I'm Alive", "Look Through Any Window", "Here I Go Again"...)

Possibly another underrated gem, Nash,'s King Midas in Reverse. Not a huge hit but a interesting track all the same. Perhaps a little pointer to his work with Crosby and Stills.

And with its failure chart-wise, the track that accelerated Graham Nash's departure to California.
It certainly did. As did Joni Mitchell, ha ha.

We have a saying about that here, Mo, but a bit distasteful -and difficult to translate- to quote here so I won't  ;D

Curtis Live (expanded) and Roots back to back. Sublime.

Check out "Live at Ronnie Scott's" , Mo.
Also, "Back to the World" is underrated IMO...

Back to the World is a great album, Mike. I'll give the Ronnie Scott album a listen for sure.
