The prophet has returned! Van Morrison, he who brought us the timeless Gloria and Brown Eyed Girl, steps back in time for his new album The Prophet Speaks. The Irish bard delves into the world of jazz, blues and rhythm’n’blues with his renditions of classics from John Lee Hooker, Sam Cooke, Willie Dixon and Soloman Burke, to name but a few. Such are the talents of Van The Man that he even includes six of his own compositions (Got to Go Where The Love Is, 5am Greenwich Mean Time, Love Is Hard Work,Spirit Will Provide, Ain’t Gonna Moan No More and The Prophet Speaks) within the genre of jazz’n’blues’n’soul.

Van Morrison – Versatile (2017) [Official Digital Download 24bit/96kHz]

Van Morrison never had to choose between rock, blues, rythm ‘n’ blues, soul and jazz, since he created his own style, the Van Morrison style; that is to say a subtle blend of rock, blues, soul and jazz… Sometimes, however, the septuagenarian bard from Belfast insists a bit more on one of those genres. Like here with Versatile, where the mood is definitely jazzy. Only three months after having released Roll With The Punches, in which he covered soul and blues wonders penned by Sam Cooke, Bo Diddley or Little Walter, this time round he revisits classics that have become legends of the blue note. In this return to the basics, Van The Man sings the Gershwin brothers (A Foggy Day and They Can’t Take That Away From Me), Cole Porter (I Get A Kick Out Of You) and some essentials like Let’s Get Lost (popularized by Chet Baker), Bye Bye Blackbird, Makin’ Whoopee, The Party’s Over, Unchained Melody (magnified in the last century by the Righteous Brothers) and I Left My Heart In San Francisco which was one of Tony Bennett’s greatest hits. It’s a 38th studio album that the master of the blue-eyed soul tackles with some serenity. His crooner voice is no longer his same voice from his 20s or 30s, but he manages to make each and every one of his sentences endearing, poignant even. There’s nothing revolutionary here which could compete with his masterpieces Astral Weeks, Moondance or Veedon Fleece, but a great feeling of serenity anyway. That’s not so bad in a way…

Van Morrison’s 37th studio album – sees him simultaneously hand-picking a selection of rhythm and blues classics (by the likes of Bo Diddley, Mose Allison, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Lightnin’ Hopkins among others) and recording a set of new self-written songs. It’s an album that features raw, intimate interpretations of some of the cornerstones of rock’n’roll alongside five new numbers by one of our most consistently brilliant recording artists.

Van Morrison – Moondance (Deluxe Edition) (1970/2013) [High Fidelity Pure Audio Blu-Ray Disc]

Genre: Pop, Rock, Soul, Irish Folk
Year of the album’s release: 1970
Year of publication: 2013

Duration: 00:39:20
Size: 5.11 GB

In the fall of 1969, Van Morrison entered the studio to record Moondance, the album that would soon become his commercial breakthrough and one of the most beloved recordings of all time. Fans will soon have the rare opportunity to experience this classic album like never before with the newly remastered and expanded version featuring 50 unreleased tracks including studio outtakes of favorites, plus multiple takes and a final mix of the unheard track “I Shall Sing.”
The Deluxe Edition includes 4 CDs/1 Blu-Ray Audio with newly remastered version of the original album, three discs of previously unreleased music from the sessions, a Blu-Ray Audio disc with high-resolution 48K 24 bit PCM stereo and DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround sound audio of original album (no video). The package is presented in a linen-wrapped folio Includes a booklet with liner notes from Alan Light and original engineer Elliot Scheiner.
The Deluxe Edition unearths an amazing trove of unreleased gems that take the listener right alongside Morrison and his band in studio. There are multiple, often lengthy, takes from the recording sessions of nearly every track found on the 1970 original, including “Glad Tidings,” “Brand New Day” and “Come Running.” There are also early takes of “I’ve Been Working,” a song that would appear later that year on His Band And The Street Choir. The early version included here is quite different from the official album version. The Deluxe Edition also includes a Blu-Ray audio disc with high-resolution stereo and surround mixes of the original album, mixed by original engineer Elliot Scheiner, who also oversaw the new re-mastering of the album.
One of the most significant revelations is “I Shall Sing,” a Morrison original that was completed but left off the album. There are multiple takes of the song (spread across six tracks), plus a final mix of the finished song. While no one has heard Morrison’s version, Art Garfunkel had a Top 40 hit with the song, which appeared on his 1973 solo debut.
