This is Van Morrison's most recent release. While Van is the master of many musical genres, this album reflects his roots in the blues. All the songs on the album are written by Van. Our favorite is March Winds in February.
Going back to the blues and early rock sounds that formed his vocal style, Van delivers the goods on his 37th CD. His performance combines originality with respect for the songs and singers that influenced him as a young performer. Highlights include: Sam Cooke’s Bring It on Home to Me, Bo Diddley’s Ride on Josephine, and Lightin’ Hopkins’ Automobile Blues. On Count Basie’s Going to Chicago, our favorite, he is joined by rock great, Georgie Fame. Five originals among 16 tracks.
For their 50th Anniversary album The Chieftains collaborate with the stars of Indie rock. These artists perform a great selection of Irish songs including Lagan Love - with Lisa Hannigan; School Days Over - with The Low Anthem and Peggy Gordon - with the Secret Sisters to which The Chieftains add their instrumental genius. On the track The Chieftains Reunion each member performs a solo piece as they do in all their concert performances. After 50 years The Chieftains are still re-inventing traditional Irish music.
