Released in the wake of the Hollies' American breakthrough, Bus Stop is standard British Invasion fare, with the titular Top Ten American hit leading off an album split evenly between pop and American R&B cover songs. As far as the R&B goes, there were English groups that did it much better, from the Stones to the Animals, Yardbirds, and Small Faces. "We're Through" has an arrangement borrowed from the Johnny Rivers hit "Secret Agent Man," not coincidentally recorded for the same label. The most unusual cuts are the cover of Simon and Garfunkel's "I Am a Rock," notable for Graham Nash's high harmony vocals atop Allan Clarke's lead, and "Oriental Sadness," with its piercing chorus vocals by Nash. The best cuts reflect what the group is fondly remembered for: crackling, Merseybeat pop, as in the bouncy "Don't Run and Hide" and the sweet, harmony-laden "Baby That's All." ~ Peter Kurtz
