People, Let's Freak Out !

The Belfast Gypsies were a Them spin off band and Van Morrison's influence is very prominent throughout this enjoyable album.
It's a pretty even album when speaking in terms of quality. The Gypsies' sound is very similar to Them, having the same fopur-piece format.
Jackie McAuley is on keyboards, harmonica and vocals; Ken McLeod on guitar; Mike Scott on bass, and Pat McAuley on drums and percussion.
The album was produced by Kim Fowley, and the recording quality is amazingly sharp and clear; much more well-produced than some of Them's recordings.
(don’t argue, I've just said ‘some’) !
Sláinte !

Wow, excellent. That Kim Fowley does get about... I bought a CD of post-Van stuff by Them and it was, um, pretty good, but this is WAYYY better.
