Both Sides of Herman's Hermits is the fourth album released by MGM Records in the U.S. and Canada for the band Herman's Hermits. It was released in August 1966. Val Valentin was the recording supervisor. The original artwork was by Frank Frazetta. In October 1966, the band's UK label, EMI/Columbia, released an album of the same name but with different artwork and track listing. The UK version was re-released on CD in 2000 by Repertoire with bonus tracks that mostly combine the two albums.
