- Artist – Album: Van Morrison – Astral Weeks
Joni Mitchell’s Blue album is a revelation; this is another of those “revelation” albums, this one from Van Morrison. I don’t know how you even start to come up with this one, but from what I’ve read about the making of this album, it involved a lot of improvisation, some luck, and a lot of confusion and miscommunication.
Well, Van the Man finally got his message across but good. I’m suggesting The Way Young Lovers Do because it’s the only track on the album that has even a semblance of traditional structure to it. You should give the whole album a listen, though, from start to end. Let it flow over you. It seems to meander at times, but the extended tracks are meant to take you to another time and place. Let it.
