Deep Cuts From 1971: ‘Tupelo Honey”- Van Morrison. The title track from Van Morrison’s 5th studio album- released as a single incredibly it failed to make the Top 40 peaking at #47. The title of the song comes from the expensive mild tasting tupelo honey produced in the southeastern part of the United States. A friend of us all- Mr. Bob Dylan once commented that ‘Tupelo Honey’ has always existed and that Morrison was merely the vessel and the earthly vehicle for it”. If I were to make a list of favorite Van Morrison songs- ‘Tupelo Honey’ would no doubt be high on the list.
