This is a VERY good Van Morrison Album. Buy it,If you like Van the Man you will like this Album. Some say the lyrics aren't as DEEP and all that jazz but I have most of his stuff and half the time if you asked me what he was on about I really couldn't put it in to words that's why he's there and I buy his Albums. But What Do I Know? Unlike some reviewers of this record I Love ''Snow in San Anselmo'' . Forget any OLD bad reviews this is a must have!!!
