- VAN MORRISON: VEEDON FLEECE: 1974: 5 + STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: IPOD: FOLK JAZZ: This is the only album in Van’s career comparable to Astral Weeks- as the songs are stream of consciousness like. It would make my Mount Rushmore of Van albums. Now I need to go through the catalog again. The music is much more Celtic influenced. After years of living in the US he made a return visit to Ireland and the album showed the influence of the trip. It’s an album Van quickly disowned for some reason. It’s a masterpiece. Mount Rushmore:”Streets Of Arklow”, “Fair Play”, “Cul de Sac”and “Bulbs.”
