If I ventured in the slipstream, between the viaducts of your dream

A friend tweeted after seeing Van Morrison perform Astral Weeks live recently. It is one of those “Classic” albums that I had somehow managed to avoid. It’s not that I dislike Van Morrison, however grumpy he may occasionally be, and we all like our heroes to be somewhat flawed.

From Maryport Blues 2007 – Saturday 28th July

So I downloaded the LP [from Amazon, quite legally 😉 ] and it has been played on the iPod almost constantly ever since.

It really is a quite extraordinary record, a fusion of folk, jazz and pop, unusual instrumentation, weird lyrical imagery. So if you haven’t heard it yet, you have a treat awaiting.
