3.0 out of 5 stars Notable for a couple of good album fillers, and one stonking full vocal belter, 12 Oct 2007
This review is from: Hard Nose the Highway (Audio CD)
A very one sided album, with the first side totally eclipsing the second. Made a year after his masterpiece, St. Domiinic's Preview, it has to be seen as one of those albums where he's still recovering himself from such a heightened spell of creative magic. He does manage to summon enough quality for one very good side of rock/soul fusion pop, but it leaves him clearly exhausted for the second, almost anonymous side.

I have to disagree. I absolutely love the 2nd side too, in fact Van's version of Purple Heather - the last on side 2- is one of my all time fav. tracks off any album ever.
Sadly scratched on my vinyl copy (played too often when inebriated in days of yore) but as soon as the price comes down I shall be investing in the cd version.

I fall somewhere between the two of you - side one is great, but Autumn Song lets the whole album down. Too long, too light and jazzy. Purple Heather IS classic Morrison though, and places this album with Morrison's best work. (A remastered, expanded version is due any time, so don't rush into anything yet!)
