Celtic Guru :: Van Morrison In The 80s | A Sense of Wonder

Fresh off the road from showcasing his calculated brand of Celtic Soul, Van returned to the studio in 1984 to record his most overlooked work of his 1980’s oeuvre. From the opening licks of “Tore Down a la Rimbaud” we’re greeted with familiarity: a tight groove, a muted edge, and Van drawing inspiration from his literary heroes. The studio craftsmanship of Morrison’s prior works of the decade remains, and he runs a tight ship keeping the layers of arrangements and backing singers right on time . . .
