"Herman's Hermits

The Mid-60's music scene was dominated by British Acts; three of which became household names - The Beatles - The Rolling Stones and...

Herman's Hermits, who are one of the most successful groups throughout the world. From their beginning in Manchester, England, on April 1st 1964, the band has chalked up over 23 hit singles, 10 hit albums, 3 major movies and countless television shows and concert tours all over the world - up to date they have total record sales of over 75 million.

Since 1971 and the departure of Peter Noone to pursue a solo career in the entertainment business, the group has never stopped. Original member Barry (the Bean) Whitwam. has guided the band from strength to strength into one of the hardest working acts in the business - they still average more than 200 one-night stands per year - and reckon they maintain their stamina by having an amazing sense of humour.

Their touring schedule takes them to Germany, Belgium, Holland, the Scandinavian countries, the U.S.A., Canada, Australia and New Zealand on a regular basis, and they still find time to perform in their home country the United Kingdom, packing in the audiences at every venue and delighting them with their solid musicianship, vocal ability and dynamic stage presence.

The 'Golden Oldies' still make up a large part of their show - much to the enjoyment of their fans, who can't resist singing along to Mrs. Brown You've Got A Lovely Daughter, Silhouettes, Dandy, Henry VIII and others too numerous to mention.

From the Sixties, though the Seventies, Eighties, Nineties and into the 21st century Herman's Hermits are still Into Something Good."

The epitome of 60's swinging London - Herman's Hermits had 11 top ten hits in 3 years selling over 40 million singles worldwide - "Mrs. Brown You've Got A Lovely Daughter", "I'm Into Something Good" & "There's A Kind Of Hush". This Greatest Hits record features these tracks and 13 more, spanning the group's entire career.

Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote When all is said and done regarding the most influential power pop bands of the '60s, Herman's Hermits and Tommy James & the Shondells emerge as the clear-cut winners for the same reason: Their music was so diverse and well constructed that it showed the different dimensions of a genre that inspired music smart enough to respect its roots which, in turn, inspired music too hip for its own good -- the modern rock movement that was not half as much fun as "the new wave," or as essential as anything found on ABKCO's perennial release of Herman's Hermits' Their Greatest Hits.
Muze PNote That Peter Noone and Tommy James were masterful interpreters of perfect and succinct little musical episodes is one big part of it, the song selection being the other master stroke. "Mrs. Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter" opens this 16-song collection, every tune coming in under 180 seconds except for the cover of the Skeeter Davis classic "The End of the World," which comes in at exactly three minutes. The fine art of the hit single is here in all its glory, Graham Gouldman represented twice with two exquisite melodies, "No Milk Today" and "Listen People." Try getting both songs out of your head after a listen, pop that the word infectious was created for and totally different from the Carole King/Gerry Goffin classic "I'm into Something Good" and the Carter/Lewis gem "Can't You Hear My Heartbeat." As with any Tommy James compilation, you have to admire how great the voice of Peter Noone is with so much varied material. "I'm Henry the VIII I Am" is just so different from Ray Davies' "Dandy," both not sounding anything like the sublime remake of Sam Cooke's "(What A) Wonderful World." It's a dazzling array of chord changes, textbook production technique authored -- not followed -- by Mickie Most, and colorful notes coming together with majesty that the many this music inspired are hardly able to touch. These short musical passages are the prototypes and the reason that the arguably greatest moment, "There's a Kind of Hush (All Over the World)," is rarely covered, given the contrast when you play it next to those who dared to tread on sacred ground. Do you really want to hear the Carpenters covering the Reed/Stephens composition or James Taylor taking the energy and magic out of "(What A) Wonderful World"? Out of these brilliant memories? Herman's Hermits added to the Sam Cooke classic, while the laid-back approach of the '70s took the air out of the bubble. These are "their" greatest hits simply because they are truly great. ~ Joe Viglione
