UPDATE: And Andrew.
Even though I could have been a Van Morrison fan since the 60's, I only started buying his music a few years ago. This is his latest album, and I like it a lot. Thirteen songs done Van-style is a big plus. Mercifully there seem to be fewer it-sucks-to-be-rich-and-famous songs compared to the previous album, so that's another plus.
I see from the Amazon review there are a couple of covers here: "I'm Confessin'" (Perry Como!) and "This Love of Mine" (Sinatra).
