Sealed with a Kiss - Brian Hyland

I'll bet this one, which reached Number 3 in 1962, brings back a few memories.

Brian Hyland is a cousin (by marriage) of the late Louis Feinberg, aka "Larry Fine" of the Three Stooges.

Bet you never knew that!

Hollies - I'm alive

The Hollies were, and are, undoubtedly, one of the most accomplished groups of the Sixties.

In Britain they were regarded by many as "the third group" after The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. Sales and fan polls bore this out.

They are commonly associated with Manchester, as several original Hollies came from the city and its outlying communities.

They were also very big in Sweden throughout the '60s racking up numerous number ones.
