Them – Now—And “Them”

Them were a band whose membership had been in a state of flux since their formation in 1963, so it came as no surprise that, even after Van Morrison’s exit in ’66, the band soldiered on. Working with producer Roy Ruff in California augmented their raucous R’n’B sound with garage psychedelia and chart-oriented pop. A mixture of self-penned material and covers (including two Goffin and King songs, “You’re Just What I Was Looking For Today” and “I Happen To Love You”), this album sits nicely between the extended guitar fantasies of the Grateful Dead and the expansive jangle pop of The Byrds.
