Album of the Day
THIS IS THE NODE AOD FULL TEMPLATE
The final Hollies album before Graham Nash would take flight, BUTTERFLY shows the British quintet soaring to new heights. Recorded at Abbey Road studios (and released in America with a slightly different track listing as DEAR ELOISE/KING MIDAS IN REVERSE), the 1967 set features a dozen strong originals - including “Dear Eloise,” “Postcard” and the title track - that occasionally venture into psychedelia. The adventurous arrangements are the perfect complement to the matchless harmonies of Nash, Allan Clarke and Tony Hicks, and since so many fans point to BUTTERFLY as the Hollies' best, we'll give it another spin today in honor of Clarke's birthday.
