A TAV Curator's Pick.

“Astral Weeks is the second studio album by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison, recorded at Century Sound Studios in New York at three sessions in September and October 1968 ... Blending folk, blues, jazz, and classical music, the album's songs signalled a radical departure from the sound of his previous pop hits, such as "Brown Eyed Girl".” – Wiki

“Instantly recognised as one of the rare albums for which the word timeless is not only appropriate but inescapable. And songs from the LP have continued to show up in Morrison's live performances since then. "Cyprus Avenue" was often his set closer, and as recently as last year he performed a "Ballerina/Madame George" medley.” – Rollingstone

“This is an album I grew up with, and that embodies everything I love about Morrison's work – the great rich stew of it, the beguiling swarm of the music, lyrics that are proved on the pulses, a voice that sounds like rain against granite – dour and swarthy and half-grunted, barking and nickering its way through the "clicking, clacking of the high-heeled shoe". It stands to me as a masterpiece, a maverick, a quite extraordinary creation.” – The Guardian
