Tim and I had an exceptional listening with Van Morrison's Astral Weeks last night. It's a favorite album for the both of us, and certainly for all the writers at this blog. If nothing else, listen to "Sweet Thing" and "Madame George". So tender, so natural, such great pieces. Below is a stellar video of "Into the Mystic" off of Moondance, with a nice Morrison sax solo featured. Astral Weeks link in the comments.
