Van Morrison – “Cyprus Avenue” from Astral Weeks (1968)
Astral Weeks may be the most beautiful record made in the rock era. Every track aches but the album seems to overcome its own pain until “Slim Slow Slider” when Van gives in and its absolutely devastating. But it’s worth it and I can’t recommend it enough to anyone.
Read Lester Bangs’s review, which is, I dare say, almost as pretty as the record itself.
