Van Morrison
Astral Weeks

Astral Weeks was the second album by Irish singer/songwriter Van Morrison. It was originally released in 1968. Morrison assembled a band of jazz musicians to create an album that was more expansive and meandering than his previous work. It’s highly regarded among fans and its influence has even shown on recent albums such as Primrose Green by Ryley Walker. Highly recommended!

It seems strange now to think that, when it first came out, Van Morrison’s 1968 LP Astral Weeks was a commercial failure. Licking his wounds, Van Morrison retreated to upstate New York (it’s always upstate New York, isn’t it) and wrote Moondance. The 1970 album would turn out to be his breakthrough, selling bucketloads and charming critics. And, of course, paving the way for all those sleeper sales of Astral Weeks. Now Moondance is reissued on wax by Rhino.
