Van Morrison not only creates revelatory music on Astral Weeks, he constructs a secret world. A beautifully personal set of surrealist folk-rock bathed in jazzy nuances, emotional vocals, and poetic license, the psychedelic-tinted 1968 album is an invitation to a one-of-a-kind atmospheric paradise. The haunting, deeply personal collection of impressionistic folk styled epics was recorded with an all-star jazz backing that includes bassist Richard Davis and drummer Connie May. Mastered from the original analog tapes by Kevin Gray and pressed at RTI, this extraordinary audiophile vinyl reissue features revelatory dynamics and nuances. You've never heard a better pressing.
