Butterfly is the second studio album released by British band The Hollies in 1967, their seventh in England overall. It was also the last new Hollies album to feature Graham Nash until 1983's What Goes Around. This, like its predecessors For Certain Because and Evolution, featured songs written solely by Allan Clarke, Graham Nash, and Tony Hicks. This late 1967 album found the Hollies making some modest adjustments to the psychedelic era: occasionally trippy studio effects, a sitar on their most psychedelic track ("Maker"), songs that didn't always deal with boy-girl relationships. In fact, however, the group's focus remained where it usually was: modest but pleasing, similar-sounding catchy tunes with high harmonies and strumming guitars…

The Hollies' first album of original material following Graham Nash's departure was an attempt to regain the edge they'd had on Butterfly and Evolution albums, after the digression of the album of Dylan songs, the regrouping with Terry Sylvester in the lineup, and the unexpected hit achieved with "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother." It's a surprisingly strong album, not only in the songwriting (which includes the last Clark/Hicks/Nash song ever recorded, "Survival of the Fittest"), but also in the production, which isn't too far removed from what was heard on Butterfly and Evolution. There's no sitar here, but Tony Hicks – who is the real star of the group on this album – employs at least a half-dozen different guitars in uniquely fine voicings, and there is also some very striking use of orchestra…

Hollies Sing Dylan is a 1969 cover album where the Hollies sing Bob Dylan songs. This album was recorded and released following Graham Nash's departure from the band to join David Crosby and Stephen Stills in December 1968 after early sessions for a follow-up to the psychedelic concept album, Butterfly broke down. There have been claims that the album was hated by fans and critics alike. However it peaked at no. 3 in the UK, their third highest showing for any LP and second-highest charting for one with newly recorded material. Nevertheless, the group's next album was titled Hollies Sing Hollies in an apparent move to placate critics. This is the first album with new member Terry Sylvester, who replaced Nash.

Hollies first five albums box set 1964-1966. This is a fantastic value purchase of the first 5 Hollies albums in their authentic mono sound. Retailing at about a tenner you can't go wrong. I like the way the CDs are presented as facsimiles of the original LPs. The mastering appear to date from the late 1990s, so before the loudness wars took hold. You can really crank these CDs up on your system without fear of distortion. The Manchester Sound comes thundering out of the speakers. It's how this band should be heard. It's how these recordings were originally conceived.

Butterfly is the second of two 1967 albums by The Hollies. It was also the last new Hollies album to feature Graham Nash until 1983's What Goes Around. This, like its predecessors For Certain Because and Evolution, featured all the songs written by Allan Clarke, Graham Nash, and Tony Hicks. As with Evolution, none of the songs on the album were selected for single or EP release in the UK. In the U.S., "Dear Eloise" was issued as a single A-side, but "Try It" and "Elevated Observations?" were issued as B-sides. In 1978, Parlophone reissued "Butterfly" with new cover art. Almost all current CD issues of this album contain the original cover art.

What Goes Around… heralded the return of Graham Nash into the Hollies fold after a 15-year (1968-1983) sabbatical. Although the absence of bassist Bernie Calvert technically disqualifies this effort as a true reunion of the "classic" mid-'60s incarnation, the quartet assembled for this album and subsequent North American tour features the talents of Nash (vocals), Alan Clarke (vocals), Tony Hicks (vocals/guitars), and Bobby Elliott (drums). The combination of decent songwriting – although there are no contributions from the band – and their densely constructed trademark vocal blend makes this oft-overlooked assemblage worthy of revisitation…
