Hollies (The) – He Ain’t Heavy He’s My Brother

What?  The Hollies, an eighties phenomenon?

Well, erm, no actually.  However, this was used to promote Miller Lite beer in the late eighties so the record label (EMI) decided to use it as a selling point for a Hollies greatest hits compilation.

As it was, the track was (re)released in September 1988 to great effect as the song went all the way to the top of the UK singles chart beating the original highest chart placing of number 3 way back in 1969.

I didn’t note when I bought the single, but my copy does still have its original John Menzies price sticker – £1.79.  There’s value for you.
