Not my first Van Morrison album but my favorite. Ever sine I first discovered some of the best music Van the Man ever recorded it has never been far from one that I reach toward when I need something to listen. My favorite tracks are Madame George and Cyprus Avenue. One of the best albums about love and loss, desperation and isolation. Not as good as the live version that was released last year this is the real deal. Give it a listen and let it take you somewhere else
