Van Morrison is a rarity, one of the few vocalists who can make Bob Dylan and Captain Beefheart sound like a choir of angels.

Forty years I've been listening to this guy. He is still as ghastly and overrated as ever.

Originally released back in 1968 - "Astral Weeks" would be the second studio album by popular, Northern Irish singer/songwriter, Van Morrison (birth name - George Ivan Morrison).

This album's music blends folk, blues, jazz, and classical styles and it signals a radical departure from the sound of Morrison's previous pop hits, such as "Brown Eyed Girl" (1967). The lyrics and cover art portray the symbolism equating earthly love and heaven that would often feature in the singer's subsequent records.

This reissue of "Astral Weeks" contains all 8 original tracks, plus 4 bonus songs (which were all exclusively written by Van Morrison).

(*Be sure to check out the "Madame George" music-video*)

The album that put Van Morrison on the map. A Top 10 greatest album with a unique rock/celtic (with a touch of R&B) style. See my GerryD List for more great albums.
