uncredited writer, KRLA Beat, 29 July 1967

"BEYOND THESE things" is a blue-eyed British group who named themselves after a Siamese cat, recorded a poem, sent it to number one in England and are being played on the rhythm 'n' blues stations Stateside because they haven't yet found out that the group is not genuinely in that bag.

Total word count of piece: 648
