Song Of The Day – 2/8/12


Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Long Cool Woman In A Black Dress” by The Hollies

By the time this song had hit the charts in 1972, The Hollies were already on their second career having survived the setback of having two key members leaving the group. Throughout the sixties, they released indelible singles like “Bus Stop,” “Stop Stop Stop,” “Look Through Any Window,” “Carrie Anne” and “Jennifer Eccles” before original member Graham Nash left to join David Crosby and Stephen Stills. By the time of this #2 single in 1972, the band changed record labels after original member Allan Clarke left. As was standard practice back then, their old record label dug up “Long Cool Woman” from the album “Distant Light” resulting in yet another chart renaissance with hits like “The Air That I Breathe” (featuring Elton John on piano) to follow. Allan Clarke would soon rejoin the group in 1973 in time for this 1975 clip is from the British TV show “Supersonic” featuring Marc Bolan of T. Rex introducing the band.
