Van Morrison - Astral Weeks Alternative mp3 album
Astral Weeks is generally considered one of the best albums in pop music history, but for all that renown, it is anything but an archetypal rock & roll album.
Van Morrison is proud to announce the mini release of his landmark album Astral Weeks, ‘Astral Weeks Alternative’. The 10 mini-album vinyl collection features four bonus tracks from the release which are Beside You (Take 1), Madame George (Take 4), Ballerina (Long Version), and Slim Slow Rider (Long Version). The Genre combining album ‘Astral Weeks’ is one of the most critically acclaimed albums of all time, and defined Morrison as a gifted jazz and blues artist.
In 1968, Van Morrison was 22 years old and one album down, a Northern Irishman in New York, with a fledgling career built on garage rock, TB Sheets and Brown Eyed Girls.

And so we find memories of viaducts and slipstreams, ferry boats and cadillacs and cherry wine, mingling with talk of Huddie Ledbetter and little red shoes.
