The Tams were an American vocal group from Atlanta, Georgia, whom enjoyed their greatest success in the 1960s, and the 1970s, and most improbably in the 1980s.

They were originally formed in 1952, as the Four Dots, but they took their long lasting name from the Tam O’Shanter style hat that the group choose to wear on stage. Although such an early origin suggests longevity, it was not until 1960 that the group finally emerged with a single on Swan Records. “Untie Me”, a Joe South composition, became a Top 20 U.S. R&B hit, but follow-up releases failed until 1963, when “What Kind Of Fool (Do You Think I Am)”, reached the U.S. Top 10.
