I just got the 3-disc Hollies at Abbey Road box. Luckily, I got it cheap... I must admit that much of what is written here goes over my head. I'm not very technical, but I know what sounds good (at least to me). I've read a lot about no-noise here, but wasn't sure if I'd ever encountered it. Well...I've encountered it. This set sounds like it had all of the life squashed out of it. I compared it to my old Best of the Hollies vol. 1 and cringed. What happened? How could someone who is paid to make music sound better think that this sounds better? Unbelievable. But here's my Hollies question: Does anyone know what's up with the stereo mix of "I Can't Let Go"? During the guitar solo, the song slips from a wide-pan stereo to mono for a couple of seconds and then slips back. And it's not a hard edit. Both channels do a quick pan to the center and then a quick pan back. There doesn't seem to be anything funny about the mono mix on this box (aside from what I mentioned above). Is there some obscure story about this? If so, I'm sure someone on this forum knows it! Also, is there any recommended Hollies vinyl that blows away the cd version? I searched, but I gathered that no one was so thrilled with their vinyl counterparts. Thanks!
