The Tams

A "beach" music favorite, Atlanta's Tams were among the more popular up-tempo soul groups of the '60s, although they were never able to break Motown's pop stranglehold. Joseph Pope's gravelly voiced leads were their selling point. He was joined by his brother Charles, Robert Smith, Floyd Ashton, and Horace Key. They began on Swan in 1960, then landed their first hit with "Untie Me" for Arlen in 1962. It peaked at number 12 on the R&B charts (number 11 pop). They moved to ABC-Paramount the next year, where they remained until 1968. They scored their biggest hit in 1963 with "What Kind of Fool (Do You Think I Am)." But many soul fans regard 1968's "Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy" as their ultimate hit, although it only reached number 26 on the R&B charts. ~ Ron Wynn, Rovi

These guys made my youth magical and I still get that feeling every time I listen to them.
It did get any better than The Pad in the 60's
I remember the Inman. They were collage buddies from the Greensboro area. Elon Collage I think
Nothing like the tams and southern beach music! Reminds me of great fraternity parties at UGA and southern beaches! All of my children were raised on beach music and bulldogs football. Nothing better!!
Hey Girl Don't Bother Me...a great song

Best music and times of our lives!!! When you hear one of the songs you can close your eyes and relive the best of times and memories. It is so great that the younger Tams are carrying on the beat so others will know what they missed.

Saw the last of the original Tams retire from the stage while his son carried on the tradition with great talent and enthusiasm. Then this spring at North Myrtle Beach festival...t h e r e were three little baby Tams on stage working those same signature moves! Three generations of true entertainers . Tears of joy! Love those Tams!!!
I grew up in the 60's. Ii have been to numerous Beach Music Concerts all over NC. I have loved the Tams since I was in high school. I saw them a lot after college and beyond. Coming to Pinehurst July 5..
Are there a new set of The Tams performing still today and also where can we get their music? Contact me @ centerpointc h u r c h @ s c t e l c o m . n e t

I saw the TAMS perform over 50 times in the mid sixties - seventies.
Joe Pope was one of the greatest lead singers ever in Beach Music!!! The TAMS put on a great show every outting, and the flute background was a signature element.
