The Complete Guide to the Music of Van Morrison

Ditto George Ivan Morrison. That run from Astral Weeks to Veedon Fleece ranks alongside Bob, E. Costello and The Beatles. Again, it was a treat to be able to find a reason and justify sitting down and listening to some of my all-time favourite albums. Van remains a man of mystery, someone who could write songs which cut through to the heart, but as a person was known to be… difficult. What came across was how young he was when he was caught up on Cyprus Avenue.
