THE HOLLIES - On A Carousel (1967)
I was in the bath one time, in the mid-1980's, listening to my favorite radio show of all time, "The Cool and the Crazy Radio Show," on Corsair Radio West. The theme of the show was loosely Beatlemania. "If I Needed Someone" came on. As I reclined in the tub and listened to the song, I remember thinking, you know, maybe the Beatles were better than I thought. Then I realized that the song being played was a cover version by the Hollies.
The Beatles were a very good band, but they were not the only ones. The Hollies were great.
