Product Description:

The quirky pop-rock of Herman's Hermits provided a jaunty experience for '60s music fans. This album originally saw the light of day in the mid 1960s, and is a collection of some of their biggest hits.
CD contains 13 bonus tracks.
Liner Note Author: Mark Brennan .
Repertoire records has sort of confused the issue of Herman's Hermits CDs by releasing this 25-song compilation in 1994 and then, in 2000, re-releasing the soundtrack Mrs. Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter on CD. To clarify, this is not the soundtrack to the 1968 movie, but a collection of the group's 1964-1965 sides from various singles and EPs. Some of it will surprise listeners who think of Herman's Hermits as the poppiest component of the British Invasion and barely a rock & roll group at all -- regardless of who is actually playing on "Walking With My Baby" or "Dream On," those are as solid as any early album track by the Hollies, and they don't do a bad version of "For Your Love" either; they even make an attempt at a slightly bluesier sound on "I Wonder," though this was clearly not Peter Noone's vocal forte. Keith Hopwood's "Don't Try to Hurt Me" and "Tell Me Baby" are off-the-shelf, generic British Invasion rockers of no particular distinction, pleasant but otherwise undistinguished except perhaps by the unusually ambitious playing on the latter number's guitar break. "I'm Henry VIII I Am," "The End of the World," and the title track are the most familiar songs here, and then come the A- and B-sides of the group's first five singles ("I'm Into Something Good," "Show Me," "Silhouettes," "Wonderful World," etc.) and their debut EP, which includes their version of "Sea Cruise," all perfectly listenable British Invasion rock & roll. The notes give a decent brief history of the group, and a discography is included as well -- the sound is very good, though more recent releases may have the edge for audio quality, if anyone cares about that in this instance. ~ Bruce Eder
