(BM) The Hollies: Look Through Any Window 1963 - 1975 is set to be released on DVD on October 4th across the globe. Issued with the full cooperation of the Hollies, this is the first official documentary film of the legendary British group known for its classic songs and brilliant vocals. The film includes 22 full-length performances sourced from television appearances filmed at the time the songs were hitting the charts for the first time. Between performances, original band members Graham Nash, Allan Clarke, Tony Hicks and Bobby Elliott share the history of one of the most beloved groups of the 1960s. Starting with Graham and Allan reminiscing about singing together as young schoolboys and culminating in the group's last major hit in 1975, the film features over two hours of interviews and music. As a testament to their legacy, The Hollies were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in March, 2010.

The Hollies: Look Through Any Window 1963 1975 [MSPR $14.98] features all of the band's beloved hits including rocking performances of "Bus Stop" and "Stop Stop Stop" from 1967 and "Look Through Any Window" and "I Can't Let Go" from 1966. Also included is a great 1968 performance of "Dear Eloise", a 1966 rendition of UK chart-topper "I'm Alive" and newly discovered versions of "Jennifer Eccles" and "Carrie Anne" from the 1968 Spilt Festival in Yugoslavia. Of special note is 10 minutes of footage of the band shot in early 1967 at the Abbey Road Studios recording session for their world-wide hit "On A Carousel." The segment includes astonishing footage of Graham, Allan and Tony recording their lead and backing vocals, heard "naked," without the instrumental track. Also featured in the film are performances by the Hollies from the "post-Graham Nash era," featuring Terry Sylvester, and including the worldwide chart-toppers "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother," "Long Cool Woman (In A Black Dress)" and a beautiful version of their last Top 10 hit "The Air That I Breathe". In addition, the film features never-before-seen home movies of the group on tour in the '60s in America, Europe and Japan and backstage at television appearances, providing a rare glimpse of their offstage lives.

For The Hollies: Look Through Any Window 1963 1975 film every effort has been made to locate the best possible sound and video; each of the performances has been re-transferred and re-mastered from the best-quality, original masters (some having rested in storage vaults for almost 50 years). In the case of lip-sync performances, the original stereo master recordings have been used, replacing the mono broadcast sound and making for a much more enjoyable viewing and listening experience. The DVD also features an informative booklet with an extensive essay by former Rolling Stone editor and award-winning writer, Ben Fong-Torres, including rare photographs and memorabilia.
