VAN MORRISON At The Movies - Soundtrack Hits
EMI 384 2242 (2006)

Van Morrison

Morrison has been recording some decent (and some not so decent) music for 40 years, and this compilation features tracks (solo and with Them) either featured in or inspired by films.

There's some well known, classic and not so well known tracks and films featured, but this is as good an intro to Van Morrison's music, regardless of your interest in films; that's just an added bonus.

'Baby Please Don't Go' is a classic track by any standards (trivia note: It was covered by AC/DC who actually did it better).

We also get live renditions of 'Domino' and 'Moondance' (American Werewolf In London), the latter previously unreleased. 'Irish Heartbeat' with the Chieftains is more of a celtic ballad.

And the album finishes with a live rendition of Pink Floyd's 'Comfortably Numb', a good song well done (let's face it, it's a song almost impossible to ruin).

From rock'n'roll to moody, pop, soul and ballads, he has a wide range. Worth checking out, film buff or otherwise.
