Herman's Hermits - Live At The Hilton
This is my description text 1. It can support html.

Herman's Hermits formed in Manchester in 1963. The group had a clean-cut image, which was emphasized by lead vocalist Peter Noone’s boyish good looks. Although the band, like many of the era,  originally played R’n’B on the club scene in the UK under the management of producer Mickie Most the band recorded a string of classic pop songs hitting pay dirt with the Goffin and King song I’m Into Something Good,  which reached number one in the UK in 1964. The band would go on to have further hits in the UK until Noone left the band for a solo career in late 1970 although the band continued without him, and continues to this day led by sole founder member Barry Whitwam.

In addition to the band's UK success they also had many hits in America including Mrs. Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter and I’m Henry The Eighth I Am, both of which made number one in the US singles charts. Outside of the UK, particularly in America, the band were massively popular and had many singles hits and successful albums. The band also appeared in a number of movies including When the Boys Meet the Girls, Hold On, Mrs. Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter and Pop Gear.

This DVD features a concert performance in front of a wildly enthusiastic (mainly female) audience at the Hilton Hotel in Australia in 1966 when the band was arguably at their height in terms of worldwide popularity. The band perform a number of their hits,  including I’m Into Something Good, A Must To Avoid, Silhouettes and Mrs. Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter. Also included on this fabulous DVD are a documentary originally filmed in 1985, which includes interviews with band members Derek Hopwood, Barry Whitwam and Karl Green along with the bands producer Mickey Most. As an added treat there is also bonus footage of the theatrical trailers for the bands films Mrs. Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter and Hold On. Finally a specially made video accompanies the massive worldwide hit No Milk Today.

At one point the band were considered as popular as The Beatles, particularly in America, going on to sell over thirty million records worldwide. This DVD captures just what it was that made the band special.
