Van Morrison - The Time Interview

Van toured last year performing new versions of Astral Weeks.
"I just listen to the stuff that got me nto it - jazz and blues."  "Brown Eyed Girl i didn't do for a long time.  It was just a throw-away song.  I've got about 300 other songs that are better than that."  "In a lot of ways it's harder when you're better at it."  "If I did it all over again I wouldn't become famous."

Here comes the night: Them - Van Morrison

Van was skinny when he was 20 years old playing with his group Them.  Here they do Here Comes the Night.  An immature classic. h/t Deborah Frost
