The beginning of Van Morrison’s career. Of course many will just remember hits like “Gloria” & “Baby, Please Don’t Go” from 64′ & 65, then Morrison quit in 66′. From my view it was only then Them became quite interesting. In reality there were two ” Them’s” when band-mates broke apart. So then there was ” The Other Them”.
But this album and song were THEM.
Still following? lol
I’ll leave you to Wiki and other articles of members who were originals, who tried to take the band name and who ultimately got to use it. All I know is the album in which “Square Room” finally gets released in 2003 called Now and Them was a mastery of 1967 psychedelia when it was recorded.
Frankly I like this “Them” without Van Morrison. So did Bill Graham who had them at the Fillmore West.
Another masterpiece emerges from obscurity. From Ireland to the San Fran love in of the 1960s. Some call it garage rock, I call this one King of the acid hills.
