Neither Imperial(div. of Liberty) or Epic(div. of CBS) should've been allowed anywhere near ANY artist or group on EMI's Columbia, Parlophone, His Master's Voice or Regal-Zonophone labels, nor any other EMI-owned label for that matter. ALL content sourced from EMI should've gone to Capitol, who, by rights should be the US licensee for the His Master's Voice label and trademark.

Imperial DID NOT record The Hollies early songs! The Hollies recorded for EMI/Parlophone in the UK. By rights this record should've been issued on Capitol in the USA as EMI owns Capitol. The Hollies were on the same label in Britain as The Beatles and Cilla Black. Capitol should've had no say in what EMI sent them for issue. When EMI says "Jump", Capitol, being the VERY JUNIOR member of the EMI group, should only ask "how high?".

Playing this in a bar band is totally fun,  people love it!  Why?  Because it's fun, not political or angry, it's just fun!

Great song, so nice to hear it again. It tells a great story, too. It reminds me a little of Frank Sinatra's "Summer Wind," but that song had a sad ending. Pop songs are poetry that often tell an interesting story.

For some reason it's been almost impossible to find this version on a CD.  Why, I have no idea.  Maybe the tape got lost.

when did the Hollies go to Epic??????!!!!...does anyone know????!!!I...I know He ain't Heavy from '70 was on Epic so I guess it was '70 they went to Epic right????!!!!
The Hollies' first single on Epic was "Carrie-Anne"/'Signs That Will Never Change" on May 26, 1967. There was one more Imperial single (Just One Look/Running Through The Night) in September of that year. A November Imperial single (If I Needed Someone/I'll Be True To You) was planned but never issued. Epic released all future Hollies singles in the US until their short-lived reunion in 1983 which yielded two singles and one album on Atlantic.

This mono mix was released only on two CDs: the american collection "Classic Masters" (out-of print) and the japanese papersleeve version of "Would You Believe". The CD "Abbey Road 1963-1966" includes a "narrow stereo" (almost a fold-down mono) version, although they claim to be original mono in the booklet. The main difference between the mono and stereo mixes is in the phrase "bus goes" when Allan sings "Bus stops, bus goes, she stays, love grows" for the second time. Allan is singing double-tracked, but in that part they omitted the first vocal in the mono mix, and they omitted the second vocal in the stereo mix.
L Conde
Yes, Cory, this is what I've mentioned...in the mono mix, they isolated Allan's first vocal, where he sings that line slower, and in the stereo mix, they isolated his second vocal, where he sings faster. Regards.

Also, the second time Allan sings "bus stop, bus goes" in the stereo mix, it's "bus stop, busgoes" while in the mono mix it's "bus stop, bus goes".

The Hollies top hit "Bus Stop" is the original sound of 1966. This is the real AM radio version. Absolutely a #5 hit on the Billboard charts. Released on Imperial records.
