"After the departure of Van Morrison, the legendary Them reformed in the U.S. where they released a couple of albums for Tower as well as a bunch of singles. In 1970, with only bassist Jerry Cole left from the original formation, they recorded this rare album for the money-laundering label Happy Tiger. Allegedly counting on contributions by guitarist Ry Cooder and well-known composer/producer Jack Nitzsche (whose worked with the Rolling Stones, Phil Spector, Neil Young and many others), this album is, in our opinion, the best of Them's American output. With a much rawer sound than their psych-pop Tower efforts, here you'll find snotty garage-punk, waves of fuzz, strong vocals and pounding drum breaks (just listen to the opening track!), with a style ranging from garage punk to trippy psychedelia, a spoonful of Eastern music and a brief hint of country ('Take A Little Time'). Limited to 500 copies, with remastered sound and preserving the original artwork."
