Herman's Hermits (sometimes called Introducing Herman's Hermits) is 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. UK albums did not have any singles included.
The success of Herman's Hermits first single, "I'm Into Something Good", #1 in the UK and #13 on the US Billboard Hot 100, led to a US release of their first album in February, 1965. After two other single releases which were eventually issued on their second US album Herman's Hermits on Tour, MGM released "Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter" in April, 1965. It immediately went to #1 on the US Billboard chart. The album itself peaked on the Billboard 200 chart at #2, and remained on the chart for 40 weeks.
The album was not released in the UK until September, 1965. As was customary at the time, UK album releases did not have any singles on them. The UK version peaked at #16, and was only on the charts for two weeks.
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".
