I woke up to The Ramones’ “Blitzkrieg Bop”. It’s gonna be a good day.

Next Plane To London - Rose Garden

I listen to this and think, it sounds "Indie" even nowadays if someone did it.

Good versions of this also by "Poor Side of Town" and Kenny O'Dell (author?).

Great vibe.

Maybe it sounds a bit like early Sonny and Cher too I think.

I can't comment as to whether they were the first to record the song, but that is the version that was a hit on Top 40 radio.

Thanks @PeteS in CA  for your posting of the HH songs but I think "No Milk Today" really is a classic that reaches beyond the usual Hermits fan, kind of one of those special songs imho.. just in my humble opinion and I know this guy very familiar with rock on a pretty comprehensive basis and he mentions that song. I think it is a cut above most of their others.

This might be my 2nd favorite by them... it's hard to say. We've been saturated with their mega-hits which "Henry VIII" was....


Error 404 (Not Found)!!1

On amazon, this was about 10 years ago, there was a guy who claimed he was Peter Noone at some reviews of HH albums. He sounded legit but who knows. He didn't post a lot, he was complaining about what might have been, say reincarnations of the Herman's Hermits and their CDs which did not include him.

...

I think "No Milk Today" may be one of HH's best. It's poignant like "Mrs. Brown", but "Mrs. Brown" feels like a 1-1 1/2 minute song stretched out to 2 1/2 minutes (or however long it it). I would put "Kind of Hush" up there with "No Milk Today". Peter Noone used to have a show that played on Sirius/XM. I haven't been a S/XM subscriber for several years, but it may still be on. Noone is in his early 70s.

Since we're in an Invasion vein,

I don't think they were at the time, but ferries at Liverpool are very colorfully painted. Mrs. S in CA and I visited there briefly in 2016. And also by the same group,

Yes, in short, I was a bit of a British Invasion guy, it's still great to listen too, I got some of the Rhino British Invasion CDs. there have been plenty of these kinds of releases from different companies actually.

Rhino released a series on the British Invasion.



I heard this next song on the radio and I had to get a copy of it, still sounds good.

I don't even know if I believe this was originally meant to be humorous. Melancholy, for me, hit the spot.

So, I'm fairly familiar with the genre.

On that series of CDs I got, it had another Lulu hit on it. This is of course, her big one here, "To Sir With Love", I'm sure most of us know.... great song. Lulu.

I'll have to try to find that other song sometime.

Tom Springfield, Dusty's brother wrote this.... Tom also wrote one of the Seekers big songs, I think "I'll Never Find Another You"...


Error 404 (Not Found)!!1

So, knowing this, I think the Seekers and the original Springfields are similar types of singing groups. Tom wrote other stuff, one would have to look it up. And believe it or not, Dusty sang in another group, I think a girl group, even before this album.

And the Seekers and Judith Durham are treasures for Australia.  I've heard songs like this, it seems a million times.  Yes, Tom Springfield wrote this.
