Wallpaper Description:

Originally called Herman & The Hermits, they were discovered by Harvey Lisberg, who signed them up to management. Lisberg sent a return plane ticket to Mickie Most so that he could come up from London to see the band play in Bolton.

Most became the group's record producer, controlling the band's output.

He emphasised a simple, non-threatening, clean-cut image, although the band originally played R&B numbers.

This helped Herman's Hermits become hugely successful in the mid-1960's but dampened the band's songwriting; Noone, Hopwood, Leckenby and Green's songs were relegated to B-sides and album cuts.

Their first hit was a cover of Earl-Jean's "I'm into Something Good" (written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King), which reached No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart and No. 13 in the US in late 1964.
