" Jan 7 The sounds on this album melt into more than vocals and instruments but vibrations of the soul.The way Van Morrison sings is as if he's pleading for everyone to understand without knowing what they need to understand. Astral Weeks reminds me of the importance of those subtle connections you have with your fellow man, a wink of approval,a shake of the hand or a hug between best friends... it escapes description but you just know or feel it."

RS 500: Part 1 (100 music items)

""This is music of such enigmatic beauty that, thirty-five years after its release, Astral Weeks still defies easy, admiring description. There was no precedent for it in Van Morrison's previous vocal and songwriting success: the bright, rolling pop of his 1967 Top Ten hit, "Brown Eyed Girl"; his earlier spell as the leader of Irish R&B punks Them and writer of the garage-rock standard "Gloria." And Morrison — a notoriously private man for whom singing and songwriting have long been a form of e"

Records, Morrison then assembled a bunch of jazz-based players, took them into a New York studio, and emerg"
