Clarke, Hicks & Nash Years: The Complete Hollies April 1963 – October 1968 is a 6-CD box set released in the United Kingdom by EMI Records in 2011. As the title suggests, it encompasses, in chronological order by recording date, almost every song The Hollies have released to date that was recorded between April 1963 and October 1968, when Graham Nash left the band.[2] Included were 14 previously unreleased tracks such as French-language versions of hit songs, alternate stereo mixes and a live set from the Lewisham Odeon recorded 24 May 1968. Besides various mono and stereo mixes of tracks, previously released material excluded from the set were the alternate version of "Stay" from the 1988 UK The Hollies: Compacts for Pleasure CD and the longer Take 9 of "Poison Ivy" from their first Australian LP.

The set was marketed as a moderately priced set, meaning that most of the tracks on this compilation were culled from earlier releases, resulting in a mix of mono and stereo tracks and the use of several different masterings dating back to 1997 when all of the Hollies early albums were issued as mono/stereo two-fers for EMI's 60th anniversary. The albums Stay with The Hollies, For Certain Because... and Butterfly are presented in stereo here while In The Hollies Style, Hollies, Would You Believe? and Evolution are in mono. Several tracks including the previously unreleased material were digitally remastered by Peter Mew at Abbey Road Studios.[3]
