View Detail

The title of debut LP The Angry Young Them seems an aptsummary of their stance. Originally from Belfast the band had to fight hard to make it in London, which they did after a startling performance of Baby Please Don’t Go on Ready Steady Go. The Paris performances show Them to be a gritty R&B band driven by Jackie McAuley’s organ. Mystic Eyes begins with a raucous instrumental passage which highlights the bands instrumental prowess before the entry of Morrison’s vocal. Garage band anthem G-L-O-R-I-A gets a brief but effective workout with effective call-and-response vocals. A later show in Holland saw Van Morrison backed by Dutch blues band Cuby and Blizzards and showcases slower, more soulful tunes. One More Time features guitar rather than organ whilst the spoken passages in If You And I Could Be As Two are totally convincing. Tracks 1 and 2 recorded for French TV live in Paris October 19th 1965 Tracks 3 and 4 recorded for Dutch TV live in Deventer September 3rd 1967. All songs written by Van Morrison.
