Van Morrison

Van Morrison is one of the few proud Irish blues influences to make it really big in America. Starting first with “Them” a five piece rock group and shortly moving onto a solo career, which would lead to his his most famous works. Astral Weeks is an earlier album in his solo career and has a cult following that argues its the opus and most under appreciated of his works. With wonderful language and descriptions of heaven, young love, a little bit of heartbreak and just enough colorful psychedelia, this album has worked its way to becoming one of my all time favorites.
