Clothes: Long Cool Woman (In A Black Dress)

The Hollies: Long Cool Woman (In A Black Dress)


In an ironic twist, The Hollies' biggest hit was released after singer Allan Clarke, the last original member, left the band - it charted at #1 in both the US and Canada. What made it even a bit more odd: the group had just left their original record company, EMI/Parlophone, to sign with Polydor. In the meantime, EMI took a two year old track, Long Cool Woman (In A Black Dress), and released it as a rival to The Hollies first Polydor single. Rock out to the tale of the 5'9", beautiful, tall beauty and FBI agent - sounds a bit like Twin Peaks!
