Products / Van Morrison - Astral Weeks
(Folk rock) Released shortly after the pop success of ‘Brown Eyed Girl’, Astral Weeks shows a far more diverse musician in Van Morrison than his previous work was able to achieve. Folk, jazz and even classical music pours out of the record, while the blues is always present somewhere. As delicate and emotive as the music is – comprised of acoustic guitars, brushed drums, wind instruments and strings – much of the album’s true artistry comes through in Morrison’s lyrics. Some critics have referred to the record as a concept album, and one of the most important in rock history. Highlight track: 'Cyprus Avenue'
