Absolute sonic treat. Like hearing these for the first time. Oh wait, these ARE in stereo (mostly) for the first time!! DES/twin-track stereo and true stereo mixes both sound fantastic to these ears. Some purists will not like the DES "stereo" (basically a sync-up of a mono backing track with a final mono recording, added with a bit of delay) but it's actual separation and these tracks breathe more than ever. Also several tracks have longer fade-outs or even end cold instead of fading out! BRAVO BEAR FAMILY

For the first time ever (for a lot of their songs), Herman's Hermits appears in Stereo! It sounds amazing - remastering these songs must have been fun. A must have for any collector of British Invasion music.
