16 Songs, 1 Hour 16 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Fifty years into his career, Van Morrison’s voice still penetrates. The selections on this loose, spirited duets album—shared with a bevy of R&B legends both British and American—don’t just celebrate Morrison’s catalog; they explore it. Morrison foregoes obvious picks like “Brown Eyed Girl” and “Into the Mystic” for lesser-known songs like the brooding “Streets of Arklow” (with Simply Red’s Mick Hucknall) and “How Could a Poor Boy,” a 2008 blues tune stretched out for a simmering six and a half minutes with the help of fellow journeyman Taj Mahal.

Sliante!

Looking forward to "staying a while with my own ones ..." Thank you, Mr. Morrison.

Oh, Hell No! ,

What a gift!

Wasn’t sure how these duets would work out. I should have known better that to doubt Van. Have just started on my 2nd listen to this album. Buy it. You will enjoy every track.

Van's still The Man

A sweeping survey of Van's catalog that's impeccably arranged and cleverly curated.

Highlights:
• Higher than the World
• Wild Honey
• Some Peace of Mind
• Carrying a Torch
• How Can a Poor Boy

There's a couple misses but 10-12 tracks sparkle and take you back once more 'Into the Music'.

If you like Van you'll love this album.
