Van Morrison's Original Band Them Release Box Set (Week in Review)

On Wednesday Van Morrison's Original Band Them Release Box Set was a top story. Here is the recap: (The Blues) Van Morrison's career-launching band Them are the focus of a three-disc box set that's just gone on sale. The Complete Them 1964 - 1967 contains a total of 69 tracks, many previously unreleased, alongside trademark songs Gloria, Baby Please Don't Go, Here Comes The Night and Mystic Eyes.

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.
