I have most of his albums, so also have these tracks, but this latest cut of the album is sharper and clearer than the previous copy as it is now 20 bit repro. The production is first class and so it is a great CD to put on and just leave playing. Few artists can say that an album can just be left to repeat for hours without the listener becoming bored. Van can.

Indispensible. If you're not sure about Van Morrison, buy this and I guarantee you'll be hooked. Classics you'll recognise in an instant, such as Moondance and Bright Side of the Road, abound. And after this get Astral Weeks. Surely Beside You is one of the greatest songs of all time?

This album proved to be the start of my beloved Van Morrison collection, and certainly what prompted my hunger to consume every other album of his before and after! I loved this compilation from the very first listen. I have had it now for 7 years, and I am still not bored with it. His music has a mesmerising affect on me. Although it's great for background music - the poetry of his lyrics urge you to sit quietly and take the ride with him. The choices are brilliant - from the high-spirited "Brown-eyed Girl" and "Jackie Wilson said", to the simply beautiful "Have I told you lately". My personal favourite is "Queen of the Slipstream", a soaring song which I cannot do without listening to at least once a week! If you enjoy this compilation album, give "The Best of Van Morrison, Volume 2" a listen. Slightly more down-beat and introspective than Volume 1, but absolutely beautiful. Go grab them both!

This Best Of is a seamless compilation of Morrison's earlier work, from the bouncy Bright Side Of The Road through timeless songs like Gloria, Browned Eyed Girl, Jackie Wilson Said and And It Stoned Me, to his duet with Cliff Richard in the 1980s, Whenever God Shines His Light. It's hard to pick favourites from the abundance of quality songs collected here, but personally I most love Queen Of The Slipstream, And It Stoned Me, Jackie Wilson Said, Have I Told You lately and Gloria, a song that was covered by Patti Smith. All the styles of Van are covered here: Celtic soul, inspirational rock, moving ballads, soulful gospel, raunchy R&B and bubbly pop. These are all gems, songs with poetic lyrics and unforgettable melodies, all infused with true spirit. This impressive compilation would be a good starting point for those who wish to investigate this great singer and composer. I also recommend Best Of volume 2, for more sonic jewels from a later part of his career.

It's Van Morrison and it is a compilation...what could be a more perfect mix? It's a natural hit. Van Morrison just has one of those voices that you can sing along to and it puts you in a good mood no matter what. This album is no exception...it is full of all of Van's greatest hits and with 20 songs on just one CD, you get your money's worth and more. You will find yourself singing along (in tune or not) to classics such as: "Bright Side Of The Road", "Gloria", "Have I Told You Lately", "Wild Night", and my all time favorite..."Brown Eyed Girl". This is a super album for any music fan you know - from your parents to your very best friend. It lends hours of enjoyment and will never go out of style...

I have been a fan for many years and well remember the sixties hits, 'Here comes the night' a particular favourite, my youth came flooding back. I have this album in my car it is played continuously, this and other Van Morrison albums I will enjoy forever.

The cd opens with Van belting out Bright Side of The Road, and if this doesn't get your toes a tapping, then nothing will. The cd contains 21 of Morrison's best known tunes including Baby Please Don't Go, Sweet Thing, Brown Eyed Girl, Wonderful Remark, Moondance, Have I Told You Lately, to name but a few. For any Van Morrison fans, then this is of course a must to add to your collection if only that all the favourites are one cd. An excellent cd to give as a gift, a great introduction to Van Morrison. A perfect opportunity to listen to some happy music.

This album has all the Morrisson songs that the casual music follower would know, as well as giving a taste of the huge variety of styles that he has tried over the years.

It opens with the instantly recognisable "Bright Side of the Road" and has other well known songs such as "Brown Eyed Girl". Lesser known songs like "And It Stoned me" and "Whenever God Shines his Light" are also included and hopefully will encourage listeners to explore more of the great man's work.

And if not it's still a great album to listen to at any time!
