You’ll hear their biggest hit tonight on my[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Top 6 @ 6[/lastfm] as I countdown the top 6 songs from this day in 1972. Here’s a hint, they were known for their great harmony, but their biggest hit has no harmony vocals anywhere during the song, making it one of the most unusual of their career. Just a single lead voice and a twangy guitar that kicked it off. Without peeking, who are they?
It’s [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Hollies[/lastfm], whose 1972 hit Long Cool Woman (In A Black Dress) reached #2, becoming the group’s biggest American hit. Group member Bobby Elliot recals The Hollies most unusual single.
