Moondance (Deluxe Edition) ~ Van Morrison

Musically, as anyone who has heard Moondance and likes rock, will know that this is 5 stars. If the max was 10, it would rate 10; were 100 the limit, it would still score the full amount. Just superb, and at the time it was issued, ground breaking, genre bending, gentle groove cutting.

Anyone who saw Allen Toussaint's one man shows a couple of years ago will be familiar with the treatment and setting here. And I'm sure they'll be rushing to buy this. The recording captures the intimacy of the show well. I always find it fascinating to hear the writer's version of songs made famous by others, and we have several chances to experience that on this release. Maybe there is too much between track chat to play repeatedly. Nevertheless, this release is a welcome addition to the Allen Toussaint catalogue and will not disappoint his many fans.

It's Tindersticks. So you have mood, emotion, passion, tenderness, bitterness, fear. This one is the soundtrack to the latest Clare Dennis film, most of her previous films have Tindersticks scores The music still works without the visuals. A must for Tindersticks fans.
