I didn’t know anything, if I’m honest, about Van Morrison going into this - other than vaguely knowing some of the bigger hits. none of them are on this album, and boy, does VM go off-piste here. It’s like a kind of rocky jazz, where he doesn’t stick to any of the known rules of music. I didn’t really like it, although I did manage to get through it twice without too much pain.
