One great CD one that is curious
on 24 August 2009
I am a great Van Morrison fan. He is the greatest. However I like some of his output more than others. His jazzy numbers have never thrilled me.
There are two CDs here. The one from 1974 is interesting in that you see the man six years after he recorded Astral Weeks using material that has proved very ephemeral.
The CD of the 1980 concert in contrast is magnificant. It must have been released after the CD Wavelength was released (with Into The Music as some of his best albums). Almost ever song performed is a classic and the performances are great.
