By lawyeraau HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 16 Jan. 2004
Format: Audio CD
I bought this cd for nostalgic reasons, as I was a teenager when the British Invasion of pop stars began in the wake of the success of the Fab Four, The Beatles, on our American shore in the mid-nineteen sixties. With the advent of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Gerry and the Pacemakers, and The Dave Clark Five, how could Herman's Hermits not fare well?
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.

By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 16 Mar. 2003
Format: Audio CD
Herman's Hermits were nearly as successful as The Beatles and The Stones in the sixties and also made the American breakthrough. They had a knack for hummable, melodic tunes and they featured in a movie or two that I saw as a kid (Ms Brown You've Got A Lovely Daughter was one of those movie hits, the daughter in question being the puppy of a racing dog if I remember correctly!). What set them apart, was the lovely harmony vocals and the British accent; unlike most, they never affected an American or even mid-Atlantic accent in their catchy music. This excellent collection includes all of their greatest hits, taking the listener down memory lane to revisit the innocence of the 60s with glorious pop songs like I'm Into Something Good, Sleepy Joe and humorous ditties like I'm Hennery The Eighth I Am. My personal favourites include No Milk Today, There's A Kind Of Hush, My Sentimental Friend, Years May Come, Years May Go and Lady Barbara. I suppose they were considered a teenybop band and therefore weren't taken as seriously as some of their contemporaries, but time has been kind to their music - compared to a lot of today's chart stuff, this is a classic, timeless sound. This album will appeal to everyone who loves clever, tuneful pop performed with feeling and intelligence.

Among the Herman's Hermits compilations currently available, this is as good as any.

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.

This is a very good compilation cd of all of the UK A-side single releases by the group, the ORIGINAL recordings, and it also contains the hit singles they had in the US which were not released here in the UK as singles : "I'm Henenery the Eighth, I Am " and "Mrs Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter". This group just could not stop scoring with every release (except their second one !), and no wonder, as there is always a strong melody, and the execution (singing and playing of instruments) is hardly to be faulted. The essential collection for those wanting the very best of this group on one cd only.

he Group formed 1n 1963 in Manchester, there promoter was the well known 'Mickie Most.
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.
