HERMAN\’S HERMITS – \”Herman\’s Hermits\” (Regal SREG 1117) 1968

From what I can gather this album is a \”Best Of\” or at least an interesting collection of Herman\’s Hermits recordings, mostly singles but with some surprisingly good album cuts including a take on the folk-rock classic \”Where Were You When I Needed You\”, The Hollies \”Bus Stop\” and a satisfying cover of the rocker \”Jezebel\”.

My choice is the bouncy pop tune \”If You\’re Thinkin\’ What I\’m Thinkin\’ written by Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart. As far as I know The Monkees did not record this song, nor did Boyce & Hart when they started releasing records. Teen group Dino, Desi & Billy recorded a version so it must have been a song that was doing the \’rounds\’ at the time.
