Mrs. Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter By Herman’s Hermits

 

There was the British Invasion of The Beatles, Dave Clark Five, and Rolling Stones. Then there was the British Invasion of Freddy & The Dreamers and Herman’s Hermits.

The Hermits may have been the light pop side of the English sound but 1965 was their year. They had seven singles reach the Billboard Pop Chart and all seven reached the top 10 with two becoming number one hits.

Peter Noone was a child actor before he became Herman. While they were a legitimate band, many of their studio tracks music were played by outside musicians including Jimmy Page and John Paul Johes, who would become one half of Led Zeppelin.

Mrs. Brown reached the Billboard Hot 100 Chart April 17, 1965 at number 12. Two weeks later it was the number one song in America where it remained for three weeks.
