stiff
 v.— «There was another single, “Listen To Me” (on which Nash probably participates), a fine commercial record which was (as usual) an English smash and an American stiff.…A slow-paced single called “The Baby” was released in March of this year, gaining the distinction of not only stiffing out in the U.S., as usual, but bombing rather badly in England as well.» —“The Hollies Revisited” by Ken Barnes Phonograph Record Aug. 1, 1972.
