Herman’s Hermits‘ fifth U.S. album, ‘There’s A Kind Of Hush All Over The World,’ debuted on the Billboard Top LP chart (#125; 2 weeks) on March 18, 1967. After just 7 weeks on the chart, the LP peaked at #13 on April 29 and remained there for 2 consecutive weeks, through May 12. The album produced 3 singles for Herman and his Hermits. “There’s A Kind Of Hush,” “Dandy” (1966) and “East West.” “The biggest single off the LP, “There’s A Kind Of Hush,” was released in January. The single would peak at #4 on the U.S. pop chart. While “No Milk Today” (play audio 16:21) peaked (U.S.) #35 later in the year, M-G-M (U.S.) released the title instead as the B-side of the single, “There’s A Kind Of Hush.” Thus, becoming a two-sided hit for the British pop band.
