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!

9/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 14th February 2016

This is Van Morrison's best album by some margin. "Moondance" which followed had a handful of good songs on, but this is a complete album that takes you somewhere and gets you lost in it's world. The songs were written by Morrison on the guitar and taught to the assmbled musicians but they were given no real direction, just told to play by feel. The result lands somewhere between pastoral folk and jazz with poetic lyrics sung by a blues/rock singer. Morrison uses his voice to great effect throughout, the dynamics match the dynamic music. "Sweet Thing" is lyrically the most positive and upbeat song on the album, which is refected in the lively bass line and string flourishes. "The Way Young Lovers Do" is rousing and has a big band feel with brass stabs punctuating the meandering bass and drums. "Madame George" and the title track are other stand out moments.
