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.

  1. I would put this and “Moon Dance” neck and neck for my faves by Van, although I will admit to not finding him AS great as many of my fellow music fans. This is one fine record though.

  2. This one is my favorite I would say of Van…this and…..don’t hurt me too bad but Brown Eyed Girl…Hans I never get tired of it. I can listen to it on a loop.

  3. Just a fantastic song. Another reason why he is one of my favorites. I love when the background vocals hit with ‘She’s an angel’. It sends me. The sax doesnt hurt it. I think Springsteen got some juice out of this one.
