Moondance, one of the standout albums in a sea of them by Irish singer/songwriter Van Morrison, is now available on MP3 format from Amazon this month for only $5.
Originally released in 1970, the album remains a masterful potboiler of emotional sounds and styles. Musical fabrics like somber soul, R&B, jazz and blues are deftly woven together to create a wonderful attack on the senses and soul. “Moondance,” “And It Stoned Me,” “Caravan,” and the hauntingly, achingly glass in the heart ballad “Into the Mystic” are the more well-known songs, but tracks like “Come Running,” “These Dreams of You,” and “Everyone” also keep Morrison’s musical gambit in full river deep, mountain high force. Moondance (along with a lot of other of his releases) is an essential recording for any musical taste or collection.
