Van Morrison: Astral Weeks (Vinyl LP)
Pressed on 180gram vinyl. Mastered from the original analog master tapes and it features all original packaging 1968's Astral Weeks remains not only Morrison's masterpiece, but one of the greatest records ever made. A haunting, deeply personal collection of impressionistic Folk styled epics recorded by an All Star Jazz backing unit including bassist Richard Davis and drummer Connie Kay, it's poetic complexity earned critical raves but made only a minimal commercial impact. Astral Weeks had been dark and anguished.
