The Van Morrison has been born in 1945 in Belfast at the top since he in 1965-the debuteer with the Group Them. As a solo artist he made masterpieces as Astral Weeks (1968), Moondance (1970), Veedon Fleece (1974) and Avalon Sunset (1989). In the 1990s he seized more and more back to the music of his youth, such as on the live album The Skiffle Sessions (2000). The cover photo and album title Down The Road give the listener an immediate summary of the music they can expect on this cd. The picture shows a used record store in the shop window with plates of, among others, Louis Armstrong, Ray Charles, Muddy Waters, James Brown, Chet Baker and Mahalia Jackson. It is therefore an old-fashioned swinging rhythm & blues-album on which ' The Man ' in some nice ballads also not lose sight of his own Irish ancestry. Good examples of this are the ballad Steal My Heart Away, the bluesy Choppin' Wood and the surprisingly fresh sounding implementation of the evergreen Midnight Train To Georgia. One criticism might be that it is not innovative plate. But the musicians play with so much fun and craftsmanship that yet again a pleasure is to go Down The Road to listen.
