4.0 out of 5 stars Completeist collection - Mind the B-sides 14 July 2005
Format:Audio CD
Although they were hardly at the cutting edge of pop Peter Noone and Herman's Hermits managed to plough a highly successful furrow with no less than 16 UK chart hits between 1965 and 1971, and even more in the USA where they were second only to The Beatles in terms of singles sales over that period.
While not exactly bubblegum their songs were on the soft and sugary side, and from a variety of sources - Carole King and Gerry Goffin wrote their first hit (and only UK No 1) "I'm Into Something Good", Graham Gouldman supplied "No Milk Today" well before his 10CC days, and the British hit factory that was Geoff Stephens and Les Reed penned "There's A Kind Of Hush", subsequently covered by the Carpenters. Whatever else they were, they were hugely catchy and sing-along.
The Americans went overboard for them, and particularly liked the jokey, British music-hall stuff such as "I'm 'Enerey The Eighth, I Am" and "Mrs Brown You've Got A Lovely Daughter", both No 1 hits there but largely ignored over here (in fact they weren't released as singles here - producer Mickie Most thought they were "too British"!).
This collection gives us, in chronological order, all 22 British A-sides and all the Bs as well except that for "Oh You Pretty Thing". The B-sides all fall into the Unremarkable category, with the exception of "Can't You Hear My Heartbeat", which was a hit in the US in its own right; some of them, written by the Hermits, do, however, suggest that they may have been closet rockers at heart.
Then follow the singles released only in the States, and finally five bonus tracks, including rather tame versions of famous Buddy Holly, Yardbirds and Hollies hits.

3.0 out of 5 stars A certain charm 16 April 2008
Format:Audio CD
This combo, seemingly on Top of the Pops every week in the 60s, were the epitome of meaningless, relentlessly cheery, pop. The Tremeloes, a group with the same MO who announced their intention to go "heavy" around 1969, promptly alienated their core audience; one couldn't imagine Peter "Herman" Noone even attempting such a volte-face with that
little-boy grin which was his fortune: the Hermits were ginormous in America in the wake of the Beatles' 1963 breakthrough, and if part of the Fabs' success can be attributed to their taking a nation's collective mind off the assassination of its president, then Noone's resemblance to a young Jack Kennedy didn't hurt his group's chances. Some Hermits recordings which peddled a cariacature of Englishness were released only in the states, like I'm Henery the Eighth, I am and I'm Leaning on a Lamp Post - Mickey Most must have realised you can only push a UK audience so far.

I don't know when their American success ended exactly, but the Hermits never followed the Beatles down their more adventurous alleyways, and when the Monkees (essentially Beatles-lite, with all that dangerous drug nonsense filtered out) got their own TV show I believe that had a significant impact on the Hermits in the states. After all, they were
doing much the same thing - and David Jones, who was English, was like a brunette Herman (with maybe a side order of Macca) - plus the Monkees shared some of the same songwriters, like Goffin and King.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive singles collection 17 Aug 2005
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
In the early nineties, two separate 22-track single CD's were released, each focusing on a particular period of Herman's Hermits career. They have long been out of print, since when fans have had to choose between various single CD's, all of which had to exclude something important. Now, at last, a double-CD (with 28 tracks on each) is available to satisfy those fans who want all their important British and American hits (which were often different) in one package. In their early years (1964 to 1966), the group were more successful in America than in Britain but their American popularity faded quickly. From 1967 onwards, they were more popular in Britain. Indeed, their popularity grew in Britain as it faded in America.
Herman's Hermits began with I'm into something good (a cover of a song by Earl Jean of the Cookies), their only British number one hit, which also made the American top twenty. After that, single releases in Britain and America differed considerably. Six top ten American hits including two number ones were never released as UK singles, these being Can't you hear my heartbeat (a UK hit for Goldie and the gingerbreads), Mrs Brown you've got a lovely daughter, I'm Henry the eighth I am (an old music hall song), Listen people, Leaning on the lamp post (a cover of a George Formby song) and Dandy. Two UK singles - Show me girl, You won't be leaving - made the top twenty but were not released as singles in America.
Some singles were released in both countries, these being Silhouettes (a cover of a fifties song by The Rays), Wonderful world (a song that has also charted for both Sam Cooke and Louis Armstrong at different times), Just a little bit better and A must to avoid, This door swings both ways, No milk today and East west.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too many tracks
This should be a single CD containing the very best of Herman's Hermits not a two CD collection of almost everything they

5.0 out of 5 stars Always loved Peter Noone & Herman's Hermits
The CD had nearly every song I was hoping to acquire. An outstanding compilation. If I could have been anyone from the British Invasion groups, I would have been Peter Noone.

I saw a documentary on them and wanted to buy their CD. This one has all their major hits as well as a few others that I remembered from the 60s. Very nostalgic.
