HOLLY'S MUSICAL VICTROLA
A brief look at some of Holly's platters...
Just to whet your appetite some more, here's a selection of some more record covers. By no means exhaustive but a fair few to be going on with:
...and the insert from the Truly She Is None Other album.

|COR BLIMEY! WHERE DO I START?
Now, that's an awful lot of work and things to listen to. If you don't already know Holly's work you may well be asking "where do I start?".
You can always recognise a Holly Golightly record but there are also plenty of different styles, moods and feelings in amongst her music. Lots to try and see!
A good starting point for her pre HG & The Brokeoffs work would be the My First Holly Golightly album, which is a kind of sampler of her work. It's available at a pocket money friendly price on Damaged Goods and features a lot of the songs you are likely to hear Holly and the full band play live.
Or you could try The Single's Round Up from 2001, also from Damaged Goods. It collected all her singles to date and is good way of listening to Holly's music from the different years (nice packaging to, particularly on the gatefold vinyl).
So far Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs have released two albums (Dirt Don't Hurt and You Can't Buy A Gun When You're Crying) and a handful of singles, so if you want to have a listen to their latest work, that could be a good place to start.
On the music player at the top of the page there is a selection of tracks from over the years, so that could be a good place to start.
...or maybe come down and see her live. It's always a treat, a genuine good time for all in amongst some rather tender and heart warming song smithery. See the news pages for details.
