Product Description

During the mid sixties, Herman's Hermits were second only to The Beatles in terms of record sales, but the band was more than just a pop phenomenon, they crafted some of the most enjoyable music of the era. Herman's Hermits: Listen People 1964-1969 is the group's first official DVD release and features 22 complete songs filmed from 1964 to 1969 that sets the record straight on one of the most underrated bands of the sixties. Included are the classic hits 'I'm Into Something Good', 'Can't You Hear My Heartbeat', 'Wonderful World', 'Mrs. Brown You've Got A Lovely Daughter', 'I'm Henry VIII, I Am' and 'There's A Kind Of Hush' as well as later masterpieces 'No Milk Today', 'Listen People' and their cover of The Kinks' 'Dandy.' In between the performances, original members Peter Noone, Keith Hopwood, Karl Green and Barry Whitwam talk about the songs and tell the band's history in new interviews filmed exclusively for the DVD. The bonus features include a 24-minute concert filmed in 1966 for Australian television, a commentary track with Keith Hopwood and Karl Green and an additional 15 minutes of exclusive interviews including the band's great recollections about the 1967 Hermits/Who tour. This DVD is one of the first four releases in the British Invasion series and is sold individually or as part of the British Invasion Box set along with Gerry & The Pacemakers: It's Gonna Be All Right 1963-1965, Small Faces: All Or Nothing 1965-1968 and Dusty Springfield: Once Upon A Time 1964-1969 and an exclusive bonus disc with over 2 1/2 hours of additional content.

Reelin' In The Years Productions, has created some of the best loved and critically praised DVD series on the market today including the multi-platinum selling Definitive Motown series (Marvin Gaye, Temptations, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles), the GRAMMY-nominated American Folk Blues Festival series and the award-winning Jazz Icons series. Now, with Metropolis Studios' Voyage label, they are proud to give the deluxe treatment to one of the greatest periods ever in music--the British Invasion. Each DVD features archival full-length television performances filmed back when the artists were in their prime and at the height of their careers. Interspersed between the performances, original band members talk about each song and recount special moments in the history of the group. In addition, each performance has been transferred from the original master tape and includes best-possible video and re-mastered audio. Each DVD also includes a 24-page booklet with insightful and informative essays by noted rock historians as well as previously unseen photos and memorabilia.

Review

"... a welcome addition to the documentation of mid-'60s music...this set is a giant leap forward from the usual fare, which has tended to be thin on footage and way too long on a short list of talking heads. Indeed, British Invasion's chief assets are the abundance and quality of its visuals and the insights and brevity of its commentaries (from artists and associates-no critics)...Two thumbs up." -- SonicBoomers.com, Gene Sculatti, March 5, 2010

"And what audio/visual treats these discs are! Meticulously researched and packaged, expertly restored and annotated and whenever possible hosted by many of the actual participants themselves, the songs and stories flow in never less than quick, LOUD frenzies so perfectly reminiscent of those once-Swinging Sixties themselves...this is one British Invasion which truly concentrates, as all such documentaries should but seldom do, on the MUSIC." -- thecelebritycafe.com, Gary Pig Gold, March 22, 2010

During the initial onslaught of the British Invasion, as The Beatles and The Dave Clark Five slugged it out for the devotion of America's masses, a cuddly quintet, Herman's Hermits, practically usurped them both. Neither as adept nor as savvy as their competition, they were assured continuing chart success via the astute guidance of producer Mickey Most and a reliable arsenal of songwriting support.

Fascinating and entertaining, "Listen People" nicely documents the Hermits' flirtation with fame through rare home footage, 22 complete performances, an entire 1966 concert, and interviews with four of the five principals (guitarist Derek Leckenby passed away in 1994), who provide first-hand commentary describing an accidental parade of hits. Accidental, because the band's biggest singles -- "I'm Into Something Good" and "Mrs. Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter" -- were initially rejected.

There's no mention of the subsequent squabble over branding rights, but Noone admits they never had potential to further evolve like some of their contemporaries. As he acknowledges, a name like Herman's Hermits doesn't hold much potential for launching a psychedelic soiree. -- Goldmine, March 06, 2010
