During the British Invasion period in 1960s, Herman's Hermits was one of the most successful UK group who landed numerous top40 singles in both UK and US.
Their popularity led to a number of compilations on the market, ever since they disbanded in 1970. There were some excellent single-disc compilation such as 2001's 25-track The Very Best of Herman's Hermits or 2004's 26-track Retrospective. Both choices were perfect for fans who want only the hits, but they contained very few non-singles tracks. On the other hand, multi-disc collection, such as boxset, would cost more than most listeners prefer to pay for. However, if there exists a multi-disc album that contains plenty of hits and album tracks, and has the same price as any single-disc album - would you go and buy it? This was the case in 2005, when EMI released a 2-CD Very Best of Herman's Hermits album into the market. Among this enormous 56-track album were all their UK and US charted singles, plus plenty of album tracks to satisfy the hardcore fans.
Unless you are the kind that love single-disc album, this is the perfect one-stop shop for anyone who want one definitive collection for this UK superstar band.
