A look at the history of Herman's Hermits shows that the pattern of releases - singles and albums - was different in America from what it was in Britain. Even where releases were the same, the success or lack of it varied between the two countries, and no doubt other countries had different experiences too.

This release was compiled using the first four UK album releases without any bonus tracks. This means that some hits are omitted while two songs (There's a kind Of hush, Mrs Brown you've got a lovely daughter) appear twice.

Two tracks here that look as if they are covers (For your love, Bus stop) were actually recorded by Herman's Hermits before the hit versions were recorded, by the Yardbirds and the Hollies respectively. Peter Noone has apparently conceded that the hit versions are better, and that maybe Herman's Hermits could have done better. I agree that the hit versions are better, but the original versions here are still worth hearing.

There are some songs here that really are covers, such as Heartbeat (Buddy Holly), Travelin' light (Cliff Richard), The end of the world (Skeeter Davis) and others. Most intriguing is Where were you when I needed you, which was written and first recorded by the Grass Roots, although I first heard it via a cover by Lacy J Dalton. Herman's Hermits could have released their version as a single but didn't. Still, this compilation and the near-simultaneous release on CD of Lacy's version on 16th Avenue / Takin' It Easy ensures that I'll buy and review the Complete Original Dunhill / ABC Hit Singles.

Herman's Hermits were almost as successful in the UK as The Beatles and Rolling Stones with ten Top Ten hits as well as a further seven Top Twenty singles augmenting their popularity. The group achieved a similar breakthrough in the USA with their catalogue of happy, catchy tunes making immediate impact, aided by the group's attractive close harmony vocal style which was smoother and more compatible than their rivals. This was especially true of their chosen easy listening songs which appealed to a wider audience, although deeper elements were often at work for the youngsters. However, it has to be said their cute, charismatic and mischievous Manchester-born front-man, Peter Noone had much to do with supplying the necessary feel-good factor whenever the lads appeared on television and in movies during the colourful Sixties.

This anthology of the group’s first four complete albums (HERMAN‘S HERMITS (1965), BOTH SIDES OF HERMAN‘S HERMITS (1966), THERE‘S A KIND OF HUSH ALL OVER THE WORLD (1967) and the songs of the film MRS BROWN YOU’VE GOT A LOVELY DAUGHTER (1966) fully reveal the group’s likable traits as well as recalling its brief six-year tenure, with HEARTBEAT, MRS BROWN YOU HAVE A LOVELY DAUGHTER, LEANING ON A LAMP POST, I’M HENERY THE EIGHTH I AM, DANDY, NO MILK TODAY and THERE’S A KIND OF HUSH amongst the hits which peaked although look elsewhere for the earlier charting singles as they preceded Herman’s Hermits move to albums.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mark Barry HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 23 May 2014
This cool-looking British 2CD reissue makes available four rare Sixties albums by Manchester’s HERMAN’S HERMITS - who along with Freddie & The Dreamers, Wayne Fontana, Billy J Kramer and The Dakotas and of course The Beatles and Stones formed the assault that was The British Invasion in the mix Sixties. Here are the clean-cut lovely daughter details…

UK released 19 May 2014 - Beat Goes On BGOCD 1145 (Barcode 5017261211453) breaks down as follows...

Disc 1 (60:19 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 12 are their debut LP "Herman’s Hermits" - released September 1965 in the UK on Columbia 33SX 1727 (Mono only)
Tracks 13 to 24 are the UK album “Both Sides Of Herman’s Hermits” – released November 1966 in the UK on Columbia SX 6084 (Mono Only)

Disc 2 (53:32 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 11 are the album "There’s A Kind Of Hush All Over The World” – released October 1967 in the UK on Columbia SX 6174 (Mono) and SCX 6174 (Stereo)
Tracks 12 to 21 are the album "Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter" - released December 1968 in the UK on Columbia SX 6303 (Mono) and SCX 6303 (Stereo)

The generic card wraps that Beat Goes On uses now on their reissues are lovely - classy looking too. The 20-page booklet inside features liner notes by noted musicologist JOHN TOBLER and pictures nine gorgeous EPs in colour on the last page. We also get the original liner notes for the albums, a potted history of the British Invasion, Trade adverts and band photos too. Irritatingly – several paragraphs are given over to their August 1964 Number One UK single “I’m Into Something Good” when the track isn’t on here at all (it was the practice at the time ’not’ to include hits on the LP for fear of sales).

"...Travelling Light..." - Herman's Hermits / Both Sides Of... / There's A Kind Of Hush... / Mrs. Brown... by HERMAN'S HERMITS 28 May 2014
By Mark Barry - Published on Amazon.com
This cool-looking British 2CD reissue makes available four rare Sixties albums by Manchester's HERMAN'S HERMITS - who along with Freddie & The Dreamers, Wayne Fontana & The Mindbenders, Billy J Kramer & The Dakotas and of course The Beatles and The Rolling Stones formed the assault that was The British Invasion in the mix Sixties.

UK released 19 May 2014 (27 May in the USA) - Beat Goes On BGOCD 1145 (Barcode 5017261211453) breaks down as follows...

Irritatingly - several paragraphs are given over to their August 1964 Number One UK single "I'm Into Something Good" when the track isn't on here at all (it was the practice at the time 'not' to include hits on the LP for fear of sales). It's a damn shame someone didn't use his or her head and include that monster hit (there's plenty of space as you can see from the playing times). But as with the Billy J. Kramer and The Dakotas set I also got in this series - for fans - the sound is the big news...

The 2014 Andrew Thompson remasters are amazing - full of power and clarity that leaps out of your speakers. It's not all peaches - their cover of The Hollies "Bus Stop" sounds weedy and awful - no doubt due to its crude recording and not the remaster. Their version of The Yardbirds "For Your Love" is snappy and clear and the rocking "My Reservation's Been Confirmed" comes on strong. The plucked strings of Holly's "Heartbeat" mimic the original and are very clean. Lightweight stuff like "Travelling Light" and "Listen People" sounds great if not a tad syrupy - all of it MONO clarity.

Downsides - marketed as the British clean-cut kid - Peter Noone's voice was good rather than great - and the material Mickie Most chose for his child actor and band consisted of other people's hits (or failed hits) and never anything more adventurous or meaty. They faded quickly precisely because they had no Lennon/McCartney/Harrison songwriting chops and in 2014 - it's hard to get excited about such extremely lightweight Sixties Pop.

Still with that lovely presentation and the great sound quality - this is definitely one for the fans...

WELL WORTH THE MONEY! 22 Aug 2014
By Paul E. Jones - Published on Amazon.com

Another great mastering job by Andrew Thompson of Sound Performance. ON the first disc, he has created a very satisfying wide mono by putting most of the high to mid-range in the middle and the lower mid-range to each channel. The result is an effect that retains the intregrity of the performance and avoids the squashed to the middle sound (which I hate) of standard mono. Second disk is a mish-mash of squashed mono (Hush)--even though it sounds much better (and is not mastered from vinyl like the Repertoire release) and the true stereo of "Mrs. Brown. Mrs.Brown does contain a full stereo version of "hush". Buy it; you will love it!

There are some of Herman's Hermits hits here, and your definition will depend on which country's charts you are interested in, but if you really want the hit singles, you need a different collection.

Well worth it for the 1st three albums....in fact almost worth it alone for access to the Hermits' 2 best self-penned numbers, the rocking "My Reservation's Been Confirmed" and the sophisticated, Yardbirds-esque "For Love". Solid 1966 Britpop, baby!
Great songs by Herman Hermits a lot of songs you ... 25 Aug 2014
