Herman's Hermits (sometimes called Introducing Herman's Hermits) was the debut album of the band Herman's Hermits, first issued in 1965. As was typical of the time, the album's contents were different on the UK and US releases.

There are three different covers for the US album. Original covers indicate "INCLUDING THEIR HIT SINGLE 'I'M INTO SOMETHING GOOD'". When "Mrs. Brown You've Got A Lovely Daughter" was issued as a single, a yellow sticker was added to the cover, incorrectly reading "FEATURING 'MRS. BROWN YOU HAVE A LOVELY DAUGHTER'". Once the latter became a No. 1 hit, the sticker was eliminated and the cover was changed to read, with correct title, "INCLUDING 'MRS. BROWN YOU'VE GOT A LOVELY DAUGHTER".
