iTunes Editors’ Notes

It’s hard to imagine just how big the Mickie Most–produced Herman’s Hermits were in the '60s. It’s also hard to imagine just how critically dismissed they were based on their safe-for-mom coifs, suits, and songs, such as “I’m Henry the VIII I Am” and an absolute bubblegum version of Sam Cooke’s “(What A) Wonderful World.” It’s too bad, because the gems were many, and singer Peter Noone was blessed a soothing radio tenor that not only drove teen girls crazy but also let the songs age really well. And the tunes are more varied than many might think. The waltz-timed “East West,” “Sunshine Girl,” and “My Sentimental Friend,” for example, all have a decidedly California sunshine-pop sound, while others touch on the baroque, such as the irresistible and string-backed “No Milk Today” and “Here Comes the Star.” Even the ubiquitous hits (“There’s a Kind of Hush,” “Can’t You Hear My Heartbeat,” and Goffin-King's great “I’m Into Something Good”) take on certain relevance in this historic context, where 23 of the 26 songs made the Top 40 in either the U.S. or the U.K.

Customer Reviews

The real deal

The songs are great, I love Herman's Hermit's esspecially Henry VIII, and this is the real deal. Unlike the other crudd with fake singers, these are the real singers, cause I own the original vinyals. It is exactely alike, except it sounds better, becuase of it being remastered

Fantastic For Fans

This HH album is a very good buy. The lead singer is the original, and with it being remastered, it sounds as though you are at a live concert. A MUST for any HH fan!!

Excellent Recording!

Thjs album is the best remastering of the original recordings of the Hernan's Hermits that we've been listening for decades in the United States. I grew up with this group's music. I highly recommend this album and its individual music to anyone who is interested in this group.

Biography

Formed: 1964 in Manchester, England

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '60s

Herman's Hermits were one of those odd 1960's groups that accumulated millions of fans, but precious little respect. Indeed, their status is remarkably similar to that of the Monkees and it's not a coincidence that both groups' music was intended to appeal to younger teenagers. The difference is that as early as 1976, the Monkees began to be considered cool by people who really knew music; it has taken 35 years for Herman's Hermits to begin receiving higher regard for their work. Of course, that...
