Van Morrison's Original Band Them Release Box Set (Week in Review)
Van Morrison co-founded the Irish outfit in 1964 but left less than three years later, going on to establish his solo career. He recently told The Blues Magazine how the stint led to him standing still on stage, saying: "There was a lot of leaping around all the time. Very physical wasn't anything new. Because everyone else was doing it, people were saying, 'You're copying so and so.' I was going, 'Well, f*** you then,' and I'd stand still and sing.
"It's actually harder - it's more focused. It worked better because you have to evolve more as a singer. You couldn't depend on the physical thing. You just depend on your voice. I had to keep evolving as a singer." Check out the track details - here.
