I Love Van ......
His music is AMAZING and it transcends...just like U2.
I think he's an acquired taste....the more you listen the more you want to !!!!

Van Morrison is at his best when he gets real real gone. My favourite right now is Madame George from 'Astral Weeks'. Another top track is 'Contemplation Rose':

Puerto Rican nursery rhymes
Angels in the snow and thyme
And I'm keeping my mind on that rose
In a church in Spanish Harlem

Got Watchtowers and Awakes for free
In the laundromat for you and me
but you can't take me down that way
As I'm not sinking

And if we go down one time you know
next time's not gonna be the last time
And I'm contemplating that rose
in a church
in Spanish Harlem...

------------------
"Once again
I'm in trouble with my old friend
She is papering the windowpanes
She is putting on a smile
Living in a glasshouse..."

It isn't so well known, but his PHILOSOPHER'S STONE 2CD collection is a personal favorite of mine. I like just about everything he has done though.

Yeah, the Philosopher's Stone has some very good material. I've got to admit I'm not really a big fan of anything Van Morrison has done since about 1980, but each album seems to display at least one gem, eg:

The Healing Game - The Healing Game
Days Like This - Ancient Highway
Too Long in Exile - Gloria (redone)
