Yes, I always liked The Hollies.  They did some great music.  I just looked and according to Wiki the Group is still together and performing.

Re: Skyliners

 

Reminded me of Manhattan Transfer because it seemed a little jazzy over doo wop. MT while decidedly jazz vocal did reach into doo wop at least once.

MT is unknown to me but yes, that's a DooWop song.

Really?! Thought everyone knew Manhattan Transfer. They were really big in early 70's ... still going. Sang mostly jazzed up pop standards. Outstanding jazz vocals. Fun stuff. Joe Bob says check em out.

I was in Germany and Italy during the early 1970s.  I guess they never got popular over there.

 

I'll check them out later.  But as you stated, they are a Jazz group and as I have already stated, I am not a person who appreciates Jazz so my expectations are rather low.
