Herman's Hermits
"There's a Kind of Hush All Over the World" (Vinyl)

Released in1967, this was the Hermit's third release on MGM.
The pre-fab beat band was part of a friendlier, mom-friendly British invasion that favored shrink-wrapped accessibility and no controversy.

Not unlike the Monkees, Herman's Hermits sought to capitalize on Beatlemania by packaging their formula and running to the bank with it.  Herman's Hermits never achieved the same notoriety as the Monkees, but the Hermits enjoyed their own enduring impact on a generation of young listeners.
