A Letter from PETER NOONE
Listening to these tracks is as if I am in the studio making them! This is the best I have ever heard my songs sound. What fun it was to be in Herman's Hermits.

Mickie Most was often heard to say that he enjoyed Herman sessions more than any others.
The great camaraderie and friendships through love of a style of music can be heard all over these recordings. I am so proud and happy to have been some of the inspiration for these recordings.
When we first auditioned we were just a group of boys from Manchester England. We recorded I’m Into Something Good in late July 1964. I was 16, Keith Hopwood and Karl Green were 17, Barry Whitwam was 18 and Derek (Lek) Leckenby was 20.

We recorded on our days off and they were few and far between but the sessions were always a highlight as we recorded everything we could play. One day people will look back on the British invasion in the ‘60s as great fun and I am sure I speak for everyone in Herman’s Hermits, we had more fun than any boys in Man- chester ever had. Hope you smile a few times as you listen to OUR STUFF, you will hear a steady progression and an odd laugh as we often did!
Peter Noone 2014

hermans hermits 50th

Thank you to the bear family for this great 2 disc set.
Have been waiting decades for this. I really like the tracks that have a longer fadeout and some that have a count in. I have been looking for longer version of no milk today and now i've found it. Looking for years. Was wondering if these tracks are coming to HQ stereo anytime soon- Wings of love from best of vol.3. my old dutch,dial my number,L'autre jour,the future mrs. 'Awkins,and two lovley black eyes from both sides of hermans hermits. I sure hope so. Again to the bear family thank you from a 60 year old guy who's health is not all that great feel a whole lot better.

Fantastic cd

Well what can i say about this collection as an avid fan i am always excited when any thing comes out with new unrealsed songs on.
When emi released the 4cd set in 2008 titled hermans hermits & peter noone into something good the mickie most years 1964-1972

I got a copy within days as it had songs on that i never had known before it also had a liner hotes and a few words by peter noone

As with this 2cd set a letter by peter noone i would love it to have had a few notes from barry,karl, keith after all they was there too yet they never get asked WHY ?

Also why has no one released any of hermams hermits at abbey road ? And at the bbc so much unreleased material and iam informed original guitarist keith hopwood is trying to get all the material hermans hermits performed at the bbc released

Why is it so hard to get this stuff released any other artist no problem yet this was the band that out sold the beatles in 1965
Not even cliff/ the shadows could do that
So i would like to say a big thank you to the bear family for this 2 cd set with unreleased rarities and a fantastic book with so much information i give it 10 out of 10
I am now praying with all the unreleased rarities still in the vaults get issued it would have been great to have all of this done last year in there 50th year anniversary but as most critics still do not give any credit for what hermans hermits achieved as a band not sure if this will ever gat done fingers crossed
Perhaps the bear family could be the ones to bring out more unreleased raities once again many thanks for such a fantastic package

Thank You for the Hermits!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for putting out the Herman's Hermits 2-cd box. This was a favorite group of mine in the '60s and I never thought I'd be hearing these songs in stereo! The stereo, and in most cases longer mixes, are stunning and I can't thank you guys enough. Hopefully you'll put the rest of the Hermits catalogue in the future. Keep up the great work.

Das ist einfach Spitze!!

Das hier in Rede stehende Album im Digipack-Format bietet auf zwei CDs insgesamt 66 Titel, wobei alle chartplatzierten Songs der "Herman's Hermits" von 1964 bis 1970 in bestem Stereo-Sound und digitally remastered zu finden sind. Und noch mehr: B-Seiten und Promitions-Singles, ja vieles bisher nie Veröffentlichte ist auf diesen Scheiben zu finden. Das Ganze ist schon ein Hörgenuß der besonderen Art, den es betreffend die Gruppe "Herman's Hermits" so bisher noch nie auf CD gab. Und dazu ein (herausnehmbares) Inlay-Bokklet (in englischer Sprache)
mit ausführlichen Details zu jedem Cut und zur musikalischen Geschichte der "Herman's Hermits", reichlich bebildert und umfassend dokumentiert. Auch das gab es so noch nie!
Und alles zu einem absolut günstigen Preis – das ist einfach Spitze und stellt eine Rundum-Kaufempfehlung dar.
Wer sich dieses bemerkenswerte Album zulegt, sollte aber seine bisher von dieser Gruppe erworbenen Platten, die in der Regel in Mono gehalten sind, nicht einfach beiseite legen.
Denn auch die Mono-Aufnahmen all der Hits, die Bear Family nun in Stereo anbietet, haben ihren Reiz und klingen zuweilen voluminöser, ja voller als ihre Stereo-Parallelen. Ich denke da an die heute noch erhältliche (Mono-) CD :"The Best Of" aus 2008 von EMI und an die ebenfalls heute noch erhätliche (Mono-) CD "Their Greatest Hits" von 1987, digitally remastered, von Abkco Music and Records.
"The Ultimate Collection" von Bear Family Records aus 2015, wovon hier die Rede ist,
verdient rundum 10 Punkte – das ist allerbeste Musik zu einem hervorragenden Preis.

Fantastic

I haven't even purchased this CD set, but with Ron Fumanek and his thorough stereo investigation, I know it will be nothing but great to listen to!! It is sad it took this long. I do believe I spotted Mr. Noone at Amazon over another Hermits' CD set with (1) stereo track!!
Many thanks to you and Bear Family for this great, overdue publication!!

56 tracks are promised to appear for the very first time in true stereo mixes.

Bear Family Records is into something good!

On March 27, the reissue specialists will unveil The Best of Herman’s Hermits: The 50th Anniversary Anthology, a two-CD, 66-song collection including all of the band’s classic hit records plus demos, B-sides, rarities and a 140-page (!) booklet. For this set which totals almost three hours of music, a whopping 56 tracks are promised to appear for the very first time in true stereo mixes.

Herman’s Hermits burst onto the pop scene with their 1964 revival of “I’m Into Something Good,” a Carole King and Gerry Goffin composition originally recorded by Earl-Jean of the Cookies earlier that year. “Something Good” topped the U.K. charts and placed a respectable No. 13 in the U.S. It launched a successful series of singles on both sides of the Atlantic which revealed the British Invasion in full swing: “Silhouettes,” “I’m Henry the VIII , I Am,” “Can’t You Hear My Heartbeat,” “Listen, People,” “Dandy” and of course, “Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter.” Led by Peter Noone (or Herman), the band boasted the considerable talents of Keith Hopwood, Derek Leckenby, Karl Green and Barry Whitwam. While session players including John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page contributed to the Hermits’ records, producer Mickie Most has confirmed that the band played on many of their own most successful recordings. All told, Herman and his Hermits scored eleven U.S. Top 10 hits between 1964 and 1967 and 30 international hits.

All songs appear here in true stereo for the first time ever, with the exception of the following eight (which have previously been released in poor stereo sound): “A Must To Avoid,” “There’s a Kind of Hush,” “Museum,” “Upstairs, Downstairs,” “Busy Line,” “Green Street Green,” “Don’t Go Out Into the Rain” and “Mum and Dad.”
