  • Here is another article about him becoming a Sir now with some video clips: http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/northern-ireland/sir-van-morrison-exhilarated-over-knighthood-34422905.html
  • Common One is apparently Van's favorite album of his own: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-northern-ireland-35494713
  • I thought it would be weird to post something here. It wasn't.
  • Common One is one of my favorites along with those already mentioned.
  • LOVED 'Hard Nose'. It looks like Van can do no wrong!
  • Yeah, those mentioned below, and No Guru, No Method, No Teacher is wonderful too, especially if you like Astral Weeks and Veedon Fleece. Transcendental. I would also suggest Also Hard Nose the Highway, for a more down-to-earth album. It came between Saint Dominic's Preview and Veedon Fleece, and even if it might not reach the height of those two, it is still fantastic.
  • Wavelength, Into the Music, Common One, Beautiful Vision - that's chronological order, not necessarily recommended order of listening. I think you'll love all four, but the surest bet is Into the Music, and Beautiful Vision after it, though that one may take three or four listens until the beauty of the songs and performances overtakes the initial surprise of hearing Van with (slight but present) '80s sheen.
  • So i'm working on my VanMo vinyl collection. So far I have Astral Weeks, Moondance, St. Dominic's Preview, Tupelo Honey and Veedon Fleece. I've only heard a few other albums of his all the way through and these have been my favorites. What should I get next?
  • Immer wieder schööööööön....
  • Happy birthday Van the man! Wish I was at Cyprus Avenue today.
