  • Director: Bert Berns.
  • After his initial success as the leader of the Irish band Them, Van Morrison came to the U.S to record his solo debut. He was still in transition from the uptempo rock and roll sound of his former band to the heady, blues-and jazz-inflected musings of his later work. The classic "Brown-Eyed Girl" is the closest Morrison has ever come to a pop song, and it remains a sparkling, infectious gem. The dark, fatalistic blues workout "T.B. Sheets" is closer to the improvisatory, impressionistic style Morrison would soon perfect on ASTRAL WEEKS. It is one of the most chilling vocal performances he has ever put on record.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (2/10/95, pp.70-71) - "...This expanded version of Morrison's 1967 solo debut displays the pitfalls of late-60's blues rock ....But in the hands of Van The Man, those vices are virtues, and what could have been tedious is often hypnotic..." - Rating: B
