Led by the fresh faced, photogenic, clean-cut and boyish Peter Noone, the band was to conquer America with their up-tempo, British music hall influenced, vaudevillian pop. They took America by storm. In listening to the album, which is a terrific, comprehensive compilation of their recordings, I realized that I had forgotten just how many hit songs they had had that I still love hearing.
From their irrepressible debut single, "I'm Into Something Good", to their remake of the Rays' nineteen fifties hit "Silhouettes", to the unparalleled "No Milk Today", and last, but certainly not least, their 1967 hit, "There's a Kind of a Hush All Over the World", Herman's Hermits were able to score significant hits. There are other hits on this album, some more well known, perhaps, but these are my favorites. With twenty five tracks from which to choose, many baby boomers will enjoy taking a walk down memory lane with this cd.
Their American chart history was very different from their UK chart history. Some singles were released in one country but not the other and even where a single was released in both, it often did much better in one than the other. Despite having a UK number one hit with their first single, they were much more popular in America than Britain from 1964 to 1966 but the positions were reversed thereafter.
The American top ten hit, Leaning on a lamp post, and two other American top forty hits (Don't go out in the rain, Museum) are not included here, though none of these made the UK charts - only Museum was actually released in the UK. Also missing is Hold me, the title track of a film they starred in. The only UK hit missing is Oh you pretty thing, a Peter Noone solo track recorded in the early seventies.
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. 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 (inexplicably omitted from this collection) 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.Read more ›
When you thing about this outfit the name 'Peter Noone' is probably the first name that springs to
mind, he fronted the group from quite an early stage.
The group were 'popular-pop' style of the day, the groups first hit was in fact their one and only U.K.
Number '1' that being 'I'm Into Something Good' which was followed by a string of Top 30 Hits
between 63' and 70'
The group also found much success in the U.S. through the 60's again with a good run of hits, think
they took to 'Peter Noone's' exaggerated Manchurion accent.
The album covers all the U.K - Hits in order of release, historical order you might say, must admit i
do myself prefer greatest hits albums laid out in that format.
Some of 'Herman's Hermits' chart successes other than the one mention includes grat memories
such as - ''Silhouettes' (Chart '3' 1965) 'Wonderful World' (Chart '7' 1965) 'A Must To Avoid' (Chart
'6' also 1965) 'No Milk Today' (Chart '7' 1965) 'There's A Kind Of Hush' (Chart '7' 1967) 'Sunshine
Girl' (Chart '8' 1968) 'Something's Happening' (Chart '6' 1968) 'My Sentimental Friend' (Chart '2'
1969) and 'Years May Come, Years May Go' (Chart '7' 1970)....these being their Top 10 successes of
course they had several slightly lower order hits, all on-board this album, think my favourites have
always been 'No Milk Today' and 'My Sentimental Friend' great pop-tracks of their day.
The group, with several line-up changes still perform to this day.
