Product Description

Part of 'The British Invasion' series, this programme focuses on the successful 1960s band Herman's Hermits. Featured are 16 live performances from the band between 1964 and 1969, including their biggest hits 'I'm Into Something Good', 'Mrs Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter', 'I'm Henry VIII, I Am' and 'Wonderful World', as well as interviews with band members Peter Noone, Keith Hopwood, Karl Green and Barry Whitwam.

Synopsis

During the mid sixties, Herman’s Hermits were second only to The Beatles in terms of record sales, but the band was more than just a pop phenomenon, they crafted some of the most enjoyable music of the era. Herman’s Hermits: Listen People 1964 – 1969 is the group’s first official DVD release and features 22 complete songs filmed from 1964 to 1969 that sets the record straight on one of the most underrated bands of the sixties. Included are the classic hits “I’m Into Something Good”, “Can’t You Hear My Heartbeat”, “Wonderful World”, “Mrs. Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter”, “I’m Henry VIII, I Am” and “There’s A Kind Of Hush” as well as later masterpieces “No Milk Today”, “Listen People” and their cover of Ray Davies’ “Dandy.” In between the performances, original members Peter Noone, Keith Hopwood, Karl Green and Barry Whitwam talk about the songs and tell the band’s history in new interviews filmed exclusively for the DVD. The bonus features include a 24-minute concert filmed in 1966 for Australian television, a commentary track with Keith Hopwood and Karl Green and an additional 15 minutes of exclusive interviews including the band’s great recollections about the 1967 Hermits/Who tour. This DVD is one of the first four releases in the British Invasion series and is sold individually or as part of the British Invasion Boxset containing Gerry & The Pacemakers: It’s Gonna Be Alright 1963- 1965, Small Faces: All Or Nothing 1965 - 1968 and Dusty Springfield Once Upon A Time 1964 - 1969.

Reelin’ In The Years Productions has created some of the best loved and critically praised DVD series on the market today including the Definitive Motown series (Marvin Gaye, Temptations, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles), American Folk Blues Festival series and Jazz Icons series. Now, with Metropolis Studios’ Voyage label, they are proud to give the deluxe treatment to one of the greatest periods ever in music – the British Invasion. Each DVD features archival full-length television performances filmed back when the artists were in their prime and at the height of their careers. Interspersed between the performances, original band members talk about each song and recount special moments in the history of the group. In addition, each performance has been transferred from the original master tape and includes best-possible video and re-mastered audio. Each DVD also includes a 24-page booklet with insightful and informative essays by noted rock historians as well as previously unseen photos and memorabilia.

What a fantastic DVD. Given that the footage is over 40 years old, it's perfect! Honestly, it can actually be called "dvd quality". The sound is great and the interviews with all surviving band members couldn't have been better. So informative and insightful. The songs included on this set are:
* Fortune Teller
* I'm Into Something Good
* Can't You Hear My Heartbeat?
* If You're Thinking What I'm Thinking
* Silhouettes
* Wonderwful World
* Mrs Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter
* I'm Henry the VIII, I Am
* A Must to Avoid
* You Won't Be Leaving
* Listen People
* This Door Swings Both Ways
* No Milk Today
* Dandy
* There's a Kind of Hush
* My Sentimental Friend

and there is also the original TV broadcast of their Australian TV special which is fantastic!

Yes, there are one or two hits that haven't been included on this DVD ("Sunshine Girl", "Leaning on a Lamp Post", "Something's Happening", etc) but with quality like this, and so much information.... you can't complain.

I will DEFINATELY be buying every issue of these "Reelin in the years" dvds!

This is the DVD I have been waiting for! Great quality performances and insightful interviews with all the surviving Hermits. The group always seemed to be enjoying themselves and never seemed to take themselves too seriously, and it was great that the interviews seemed to confirm that the truth lived up to the image. The interviews also nails the lie that the Hermits were somehow deficient in their instrument playing. They were in fact a great band.

You can play the whole DVD with interviews interspersed, or just the songs themselves. The only thing that stops this being perfect is a lack of a full discography on the dvd. Still that is a minor gripe. Great dvd and a a "must buy" for all HH fans!!

I love everything to do with the 60s and so when I found this DVD on the Amazon music listing it had to be mine. I wasn't a bit disappointed and am probably well on the way to playing this DVD to destruction, and by now poor old Hermans Hermits must be wishing that they really were hermits. Don't let this one pass you by, a great music DVD at a great price from a great supplier.

Plenty of live songs on this first rate DVD. I missed their 60's heyday but can now see them live in the 60's with very good quality film. These are full songs and not the clips you get conned with on some DVD's. A must for Herman's Hermits fans.

This is a good DVD and I can only echo the positive comments already posted. There is both an interesting narrative and music (of course!). Personally, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
