A beautiful copy of a hard to find Van Morrision item.
Background: Them Again, released in 1966, was the second album by Them and the final album by the band to include Van Morrison.
The LP was issued in the UK in mono, with 16 tracks; it was issued in the United States in a 12 track version and most of the copies sold were in rechanneled stereo.
The album peaked at #138 on the U.S. album charts. It did not chart in the UK.
The group’s second and, for all intents and purposes, last full album was recorded while Them was in a state of imminent collapse. To this day, nobody knows who played on the album, other than Van Morrison and bassist Alan Henderson, though it is probable that Jimmy Page was seldom very far away when Them was recording… but the main thrust is soul, which Morrison oozes everywhere — while there’s some filler, his is a voice that could easily have knocked Mick Jagger or Eric Burdon off their respective perches.
