Astral Weeks is one of those classic albums that everyone should have!
Released back in 1968, it blended jazz, blues, folk and classical music ideas together to make ethereal sounds quite unlike anything else at the time. The album was recorded in New York, with a team of seasoned jazz musicians and a string quartet.
Over this eclectic backdrop, Van’s vocal dexterity and passion oozes from every groove. Among the highlights are Madame George, which captures the mixture of joy and sadness that comes with the loss of innocence, and Cyprus Avenue, a song about unrequited, perhaps even forbidden love. An absolute masterpiece!
