Stop, stop, stop all the dancing Give me time to breathe Stop, stop, stop all the dancing Or I'll have to leave. Now, shes moving all around the tables Luring all in sight But I know that she cannot see me Hidden by the light. Closer, closer, she is getting nearer Soon she'll be in reach As I enter into a spotlight She stands lost for speech. Stop, stop, stop all the dancing Give me time to breathe Stop, stop, stop all the dancing Or I'll have to leave.

The Stop Stop Stop album is light years ahead of Bus Stop-very hard to believe it's from the same year! A completely self-penned album, the song maturity and lyrical depth-jump is amazing. Graham Nash is obviously about to explode as a major artist (Tell Me To My Face is Marrakesh Express, J. Also, the introspective Clown and Crusader clearly pave Nash's road towards CS&N, less than two years later. The "Bus Stop" album has 10 songs in high quality true stereo & 2 songs in pure mono. This album was the first Hollies album that I bought back in 1968, but my vinyl . If it is true, as some have said, that the original stereo vinyl was mostly fake stereo, then EMI & the BGO label have done a wise thing reassembling the album from quality Uk original masters).
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.
