Them Did That Best

[youtube=]I stated my position over dinner this weekend:  Of all the blue-eyed soul / garage rock / cusp-of-psych bands that came out of England and Ireland in the 1960s, Them did that best.

It's Van Morrison's broken glass, no-holds-barred, arrow-through-my-heart vocals. They belie his foppish hair.

If Them were easier to search for on YouTube and Google Videos, I'd have tracked down footage of a live performance of "I'm Gonna Dress In Black" or "Little Girl," two of my favorite tracks off The Angry Young Them.
