Their Greatest Hits [ABKCO]

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
When it first appeared on CD around 1987, this 16-song compilation was easy to justify, as there are no other domestic compilations of the group's work and imported CDs were difficult to come by. And it isn't bad, as far as it goes -- encompassing all of the significant American chart singles and their most recognizable songs. This disc is probably the most easily available Herman's Hermits CD that there is, and it could be the place to start and finish with the group as far as any awareness of their popularity goes.

Over the years, however, EMI in England has issued far more generous and better-sounding collections of the group's work, with the result that Their Greatest Hits is no longer competitive on that level, nor is it remotely the place to get the fullest account of the group's range, which went considerably beyond AM radio hits. EMI's The Very Best of Herman's Hermits offers more songs and better sound at a lower price, and any of the Repertoire Records reissues of their albums, though the hits aren't all represented, will give the listener a fuller account of the group's full capabilities, which were highly underrated.

    Hurray For Herman's Hermits!

    Herman's Hermits, headed by Peter Noone were on the front line of The British Invasion, even though they were eventually pushed to the back by the unbelievable success of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. Like The Kinks, their music is whimsical, often humorous, and always makes you feel great. I think it's one of the best cures for the blues, just listen to any of the old songs of bands like The Zombies, Tommy James, or The Dave Clark Five and you will instantly find a smile on your face as your foot taps to the beat. This is feel good music that sounds just as good today as the day it was written, despite the innocent and sentimental lyrics which were more likely to be popular in 1968 than today. If you want a more modern version of Brit-pop, listen to The Arctic Monkeys. They were listed as one of the best pop rock bands of all time in my book, The Bachelors Bible.

    Look No Further

    If you love all the old Herman's Hermits tunes from the 60s, this is the c.d. for you. Original artist and the best versions of all their songs!

    I love this album

    I don't have this album, but I've listened to the songs on radio. I say it's a fun album to sing to.
