      Dla spragnionych wiedzy o tym kawałku i grupie pozwolę sobie zacytować:

      "Here Comes the Night" is a 1964 song, written by Bert Berns and originally released by Decca on a recording by Scottish singer Lulu that charted at No. 50. The band Them, whose lead singer was Van Morrison, had a hit with it when their version was released in March 1965. Them's version charted at No. 2 in the UK and No. 24 in the US and was listed as No. 33 on the list of the Top 100 most popular hits in UK singles for the year 1965.
      This was the second Them record produced by Bert Berns and the first that he had written for Them. It was recorded in a session at Decca Studios in West Hamstead, London in October 1964 along with "Baby, Please Don't Go" and "All For Myself".

      Jimmy Page played guitar on this arrangement. Andy White and Tommy Scott performed backing vocals with Phil Coulter on keyboards. Drummer Ronnie Millings recalled that the band worked on the song at the studio with rehearsals lasting four days. Billy Harrison noted that "I remember sitting in Decca when Bert said he had this song, and he came out with "Here Comes the Night". He had a riff and that's all he had, and we sat and we worked on it, and we came up with what you hear. We worked at it sitting in the studio—but no engineers or anything." Phil Coulter later said, "I knew I'd heard a smash. It was the first time I'd ever heard a hit record in its emerging state."

      "Here Comes the Night" was Them's third single, released following the success of "Gloria". The first day of its release it sold 16,000 copies, at the time an impressive showing. It peaked at #2 UK and #24 US, spending 10 weeks on the U.S. chart. It was also released on the EP Mystic Eyes. After the record was released, Them immediately was sent on a public relations push with television appearances on Ready Steady Go! and Top of the Pops.

      "Them" were a Northern Irish band formed in Belfast in April 1964, most prominently known for the garage rock standard "Gloria" and launching singer Van Morrison's musical career. The original five member band consisted of Van Morrison, Alan Henderson, Ronnie Millings, Billy Harrison and Eric Wrixon.The group was marketed in the United States as part of the British In

      "Them" scored two UK hits in 1965 with "Baby, Please Don't Go" (UK #10) and "Here Comes the Night" (UK #2, Ireland #2). The latter song and "Mystic Eyes"" were Top 40 hits in the US.

      Van Morrison quit the band in 1966 and went on to a successful career as a solo artist. Although Them had a short-lived existence, the Belfast group had considerable influence on other bands, such as The Doors.

    • basilisque Nr. 242 Bachman Turner Overdrive "Taking Care of.. 31.07.13, 22:47
      Nie, mimo wakacji - całkiem nie zniknąłem. Widzę, że koledzy się zaopiekowali i mamy ciągłość. Zgodnie z planem przed Gwiazdką dochodzimy do pierwszej 10! A tymczasem "taking care of business" czyli bierzemy sprawy w swoje ręce. Już o BTO - było, więc jedziemy:
      TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS - nr 12 w r. 74 w US
    • basilisque Nr. 234 Simon & Garfunkel "The Boxer" 03.08.13, 22:14
      Cieszę się słysząc znów to znakomite duo (nie lubię tylko "El condor pasa"). Ta piosenka z 69 roku została umieszczona też na liście top 500 wszech czasów Rolling Stone'a i to wysoko na poz. 104!

    • basilisque Nr. 233 Aerosmith "Walk This Way" 03.08.13, 22:27
      Ten riff znany tak prawie jak ten z satisfaction. Tym razem nie daję oryginału, ale przeróbkę Aerosmith RUN DMC czyli rock'n'hop - włączając się w dyskusję na temat skomplikowanych relacji rock- rap!
      WALK THIS WAY - co prawda nie w tej wersji, nr. 12 w US jesień 77
    • basilisque Nr. 231 Ace "How Long" 05.08.13, 22:34
      To ciekawa historia , utwór b. znany, wykonawca (grupa) zupełnie zapomniana (nie mylić z Ace of Base), jej lider (głosowo i fizycznie podobny do Phila Collinsa) Paul Carrack, współpracował póżniej z Roxy Music, Squeeze no i w latach 80 - Mike & The Mechanics...
      HOW LONG nr 3 w US i tylko 20 w UK na przełomie 74/75
    • basilisque Nr. 229 T.Rex "Get It On" 05.08.13, 23:00
      I jeszcze jedna z tych ikon epoki, Marc Bolan którego Partnerkę Glorię Jones niedawno tu prezentowaliśmy, zginął w 77 r. w wypadku, jadąc z Glorią. Ona przeżyła:
      GET IT ON - nr 1 w UK i nr 10 w US w r. 71/72
    • basilisque Nr. 228 Bob Dylan "The Times They Are A Changin'" 06.08.13, 22:35

      TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGIN powstawał w roku 63 w 64 trafił do sprzedaży (album), dopiero 20 w US ale za to 3 na pocz.65 w UK, a piosenka - nr 9 na pocz. 65 w UK
