"Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress" is a song by The Hollies. It was released on February 1, 1972, as a single on the Parlophone Records label.

It was released soon after Allan Clarke, who was featured on both rhythm guitar and lead vocal, had left the group. It appears on their album Distant Light (1971). As the group had just left EMI/Parlophone and signed with Polydor, they did not promote the song. However, it became a No. 2 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and No. 1 on Cash Box in the United States, their most successful single there, it was also No. 1 in Canada. It was inspired by, and in the style of, the rock and roll group Creedence Clearwater Revival, especially their song Green River. On being reactivated by EMI in Britain a few months later, it reached No. 32 on the UK Singles Chart.

Looks like myspace videos have stopped working again, even on their own site. I contacted their support and reported the problem. I'll wait until I hear back from them. I'd hate to delete all those good videos so I'd rather wait a while longer. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
