Them - Again. 1966
Garage / British R&B classic from Van Morrison’s Them. This would be the last album with Van in the band. He would go onto stardom as a solo artist. Them stuck around and went psychedelic without him after this album. Solid album of high energy garage rock and roll and this last of this sound for Them.
Song Of The Day Lil Red Riding Hood by Sam The Sham and the Pharaohs. It is one of my favorites from forcibly having to listen to my parents radio station. “ What a big heart I have, The better to love you with”
This is another cover done by The Band of Joy in 1968, Originally made popular by Tim Rose in 1966, traditional Sony “Hey Joe” was made legendary by Jimi Hendrix in 1967 when he recorded a version for his debut album “Are you experienced”.
Much like #AlWiseman ’s #DennistheMenace work, #BilKeane depicted his suburban world of the ‘60s with a lot of specific, sharply-rendered detail. Here, we can see that one of the kids received the #PhantomRaider ship from #IdealToys for #Christmas . This #FamilyCircus paperback is made of #1966 strips, and that toy came out in #1964 , so I don’t know if that toy was on the market for several years, or whether he was looking at old family snapshots for reference.
