Liner Note Author: Alex Ogg.
One of the most readily accessible groups of the British Invasion, Herman's Hermits, led by charismatic vocalist Peter Noone, became highly successful in the mid-1960s with a sunny pop tune ("I'm Into Something Good") and lighthearted cockney-tinged ditties ("Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter," "I'm Henry the VIII, I Am"). While these hits are presented on this 25-track collection, THE VERY BEST also includes other gems such as "Dandy," a jaunty Kinks cover, and the buoyant "There's a Kind of Hush," making it one of finest Herman's Hermits compilations on the market.
