The inimitable Van Morrison tonight, by way of his British Invasion tenure with Them, in session for the BBC program Saturday Club, recorded on April 3, 1964. In retrospect, Them during the Van Morrison period lasted a little less than two years. But in that short period of time released two albums and some of the most landmark and pivotal singles of the era. It was during Van Morrison’s tenure that the band released such 60s anthems as Here Comes The Night, Mystic Eyes and the immortal Gloria.

So even though the stay was a short one – Them from 1964-1966 was legendary.

Tonight it’s a session that ends with Here Comes The Night and a glimpse of things to come.

Play loud and play often.
