Then: The Earlier Years ay isang dobleng pagsasama ng album ng banda na They Might Be Giants, na inilabas noong 1997. Ang Then ay naglalaman ng album na Lincoln sa kabuuan nito, ang mga album na They Might Be Giants at Miscellaneous T na bawat isa ay nawawala ang isang track, ang ilang kung hindi man ay hindi pinag-aralan ang mga kanta mula sa kanilang 1985 Demo Tape at iba pang mga kanta na dati nang hindi na-rate. Ang kanta na nawawala mula sa Miscellaneous T ay "(She Was a) Hotel Detective (Single Mix)" at ang awit na nawawala mula ng They Might Be Giants ay ang bersyon ng album na "Don't Let's Start", dahil napalitan ito ng angkop na lugar sa listahan ng track ng iisang bersyon ng parehong kanta mula sa Miscellaneous T. Ang sanggunian na "We're The Replacements" ay tumutukoy sa kahaliliang bandang pang-rock ng parehong pangalan.

Nagbebenta rin ang They Might Be Giants Online Store ng mga non They Might Be Giants at Lincoln na magkahiwalay, sa dalawang bahagi na pinamagatang Giants Jubilee at Mightathon. Ang mga album na ito ay isang beses na ibinebenta nang hiwalay, ngunit ang buong album ay karaniwang magagamit para sa pagbebenta nang awtomatiko.

Ang compilation Best of the Early Years ay epektibong isang mabibigat na bersyon ng paglabas na ito (isang solong disc at 10 track lamang).
