I do a lot of ribbing on Herman and the Hermits on various threads, but deep down you have to appreciate the pop production of their hits.  I gotta think they had some good session guys playing on their tunes, such as the banjo on Mrs. Brown.  I tried to link to the cover of an album of theirs done by Frank Frazetta, but it wouldn't show for some reason.  Looks collectible to me.

Some of their early stuff was penned by Graham Gouldman later of 10cc fame - No Milk Today, for example.

They do put on a great show though, I've seen them in concert 10 times soon to be 11 and it just gets better and better, Peter Noone has a great personality and is great to his fans, he knows who I am before I introduce myself, now how many celebrities take the time to get to know their fans? I have lots of respect for Peter, he's wonderful!!

Herman's Hermits sound like they're in the same leagues as the Beatles, the Stones & the Who these days.  My all time HH's classics are Mrs. Brown You've Got A Lovely Daughter, Listen People & Henry The 8th.

"Listen People" is one of my fvorote songs from the 60s! Peter had such a great voice and most of their songs were very very catchy! The Hollies seemed to be intertwined with this band from the same era! Similar sound same direction.

I agree with you about PN's vocals apple sauce except the Hollies were taken more seriously than the Hermits.

Well the Hermit's front man was a teen pop idol and they projected a more Heart throb style then the "Hollies". I think their songs were portrayed as more "fun" then the Hollies material. I'm Henery The 8th, Mrs. Brown, along with Dandy were all sweet little pop songs destin for am radio!

I think they were more successful in America than the UK and some of their songs seem purposely geared to the US market. With its love of all things British at the time it seems HH recorded some songs that were deliberately overly British, such as "Mrs Brown..." and especially "Henry VIII" for the US.

They're a bit too syrupy for my taste but if you were 13 and American at the time I can see the appeal - The Beatles were growing up and leaving a gap in the market.

They did make some dreadful songs in my opinion and although their version of "I'm Into Something Good" is a classic, it's still not a patch on Earl Jean's original (IMO)!

Some of their songs just make me cringe - "Silhouetes" and "No Milk Today" for example, but there is no denying the quality of "A Kind Of Hush".

Micky Most did a good job!

The cool thing about Peter Noone is he still looks the same, literally & he's approaching 60 next year.

Well again I think their talent was thin, but "Peter" had that pop idol look about him which they cashed in on! The songs were written with 12 year old girls in mind. Did they do a version of the "Sillouette On The Shade" song also?
