Clocking in at a healthy nine minutes and thirty five seconds, Van Morrison’s “T.B. Sheets,” culled from his first album Blowin’ Your Mind!, remains one of his most spirited exercises in blue-eyed soul. Fevered, you can almost feel the man’s cold sweat just prior to his transformation into a household name.

“The cool room Lord, is a fool’s room. The cool room Lord, is a fool’s room. And I can almost smell your T.B. sheets. I can almost smell your T.B. sheets. I gotta go.”

  5. She’s a banging track, I’ve already got it stuck on a summer playlist (southern hemisfear down here!) not far from Ghostface’s Greedy Bitches track which samples it. Rockin’ in the sun.

    I have a record with this and Who Drove the Red Sports Car which was I played on high repeat for ages a couple of years ago. Can’t remember what the album was but the illustration on the sleeve sure looked like a NY scene.

  6. L’influence des pierres précieuses et l’astrologie….

    Il est bien connu qu’à l’époque du premier christianisme plusieurs ?uvres d’auteurs anciens sur l’influence des pierres sur la santé et le destin de l’homme ont disparu (l’église croyait que c’étaient les résultats de la superstition païe…

  7. PLEASE PLEASE Please POST Van Morrison’s TB Sheets again, with the mp3 download, you would just make my summer!
