On this album, Them have introduced vibes, sax and flute. They are not content to stand still musically and rest on the laurels of three big hit records, and are now moving towards a "sound" very close to the jazz idiom. This is an album to enjoy! To dance to! But is also an album for connoisseurs. Van Morrison, the lead singer with Them sometime throws his advisors into a frenzy of hair tearing despair On sessions Ich Bleib Dir Treu - Carl Grunow - Die Tolle Lola / Madame Flirt (Shellac) asked to alter the phrasing of a number or increase the tempo, he will say with quiet rebellion: "No!
I always sing this way A stormy, tempest riven album for those looking for an 'experience'. And in every phrase, every note, a supremely great album! We hope you will agree! It is a startling, dramatic opening number and sets the tone of the entire album. Kenner and recorded by the one and only Chuck Jackson. Van is an admirer of the famous American singer, and recorded this title in the form of an acknowledgment. The boys were "balling around" during the recording of this number and by the time they arrived at the Could You Would You - Them Featuring Van Morrison - Them Again chorus-things were really swinging!
This track, perhaps more than any of the others, shows Van Morrison's great flair, versatility and inspirational genius. For those who like their music pulsatingly wild, "Out of Sight" is the track for them! This track beautifully illustrates Morrison's rapport between himself and the song. For even a progressive group like Them, to introduce the flute is somewhat unusual. On this fast moving track Van mentions districts and place names of London Queensway in particular is very like New York's Greenwich Village.
One could almost say that Van really "goes to town" on this track.
