Herman's Hermits - retrospective SACD, 2004 ABKCO Music & Records Inc.

The music of Herman's Hermits is that of a lifetime.....and a band that never got the recognition they deserved....clearly were overlook by the British Invasionaries......The Kinks, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Animals etc.... But having said that this SACD compilation on ABKCO (the same Company who did the great Rolling Stones SACD remasters) is absolutely essential. The sound on this SACD makes all the songs sound just so fresh and alive again. There are sonic dimensions going on here that I have never heard before.....listen to the guitar strumming clarity on "Hold On" with it's very "beatle'esque harmonies, or the heavy foot tapping bass/drumming interplay on "I'm Henry The 8th". Peter Noone never sounded so good and I would recommend this SACD to anyone who is a big fan of Herman's Hermits..........essential

Performance:   Sonics:
Bob Ludwig did a great job with this disc. As with the Animals album, these tracks are all straight mono mixes made for 45s and AM radio. None the less, the tone and depth is wonderful considering the source. Beats out my LP by a long shot.
