Like many of you already have, I want to say Hollies, b/c when they were on they were great. . .
But then I remember that on the Two Yanks in England record, the Everlys do eight (?) Hollies songs with the Hollies backing them up, all songs the Hollies recorded their own versions of, and in each case Don and Phil smoke Allan, Graham & co. (IMO of course.)
Now, this may have more to do with the Everlys' greatness than the Hollies' lack of worthiness, but still.
This has nothing to do with the Bee Gees. Did the Hollies ever put out an album as strong as the first Bee Gees record? I dunno, can't think of one.
In the 70s of course, one band went disco and the other covered Springsteen. Call that one a draw.
