Van Morrison - Moondance download album

Moondance is the third studio album by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison. It was released on 27 February 1970 by Warner Bros. After the commercial failure of his first Warner Bros. album Astral Weeks (1968), Morrison moved to upstate New York with his wife and began writing songs for Moondance. There, he met the musicians that would record the album with him at New York City's A & R Studios in August and September 1969.

Moondance - Remastered.

Van the Man’s third studio album, released in 1970. The LP hit No. 29 on Billboard’s Pop Albums chart. The album ranks among Morrison’s most memorable. It was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999 and ranked 65th on Rolling Stone magazine’s 2003 list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

The album would solidify Van Morrison as an FM radio mainstay, act as a midwife for the burgeoning genre of soft rock, and help usher in the ’70s in America, where the beautiful hippie couples of the late ’60s would soundtrack their developing newfound domestic comfort with the sweet sounds of Morrison’s mystical love-anthems. Morrison’s lyrical interests on Moondance turn towards the preoccupations of gypsies and sailors.

Born in 1945, Van Morrison was introduced to American jazz and blues by his father and by the age of twelve had formed his first band, The Sputniks (if this isn't a sign, then I don't know what is. Ha!), but it wasn't until the latter half of the 60's when things started to pick up from him.
