Van Morrison Discography

Poet, philosopher, priest and patron saint of eternal childhoods and endless summers. Van got his first break in Them, a Northern Invasion band from Belfast that scored several R&B-inspired hits including “Baby Please Don’t Go,” “Here Comes The Night” and “Gloria.” Them had the makings to become as big as The Animals, but internal dissension split the band in two and Morrison left after two albums to record an album with Atlantic Records’ Bert Berns in New York on his new label, Bang.

The Bang sessions resulted in a hit single, “Brown Eyed Girl,” and an album, Blowin’ Your Mind (1967). Unfortunately, leftover tracks from the sessions have been the bane of discographers ever since. Morrison then signed with Warner Brothers and recorded a new album with an ad hoc group of jazz musicians. Astral Weeks (1968) revealed a completely different side of Morrison; recorded with no rehearsal and little direction, its fragile and beautiful soundscape was an inspired mix of felicity, fearlessness and genius. The albums that followed were more flesh-and-blood creations but no less inspired. It’s to these records that some of Morrison’s most recognizable hits belong: “Moondance,” “Domino,” “Wild Night” and “Jackie Wilson Said (I’m In Heaven When You Smile).”

Christianity, nature and the past have long played an important part in Van’s music. In the mid 70s, Morrison’s singles were more likely to be frothy creations like “Warm Love” than the hook-driven hits of yore. Still, his music has been remarkably consistent over the years; even into the 80s, it was comforting to know that you could put the needle down on a Van Morrison record and go home again.

Over the last couple of decades, Morrison has continued to release albums at a steady pace while experimenting with new genres (traditional Irish music, country, jazz). In many ways, his career has followed the path of another bard, Bob Dylan, both of whom have managed to maintain their enigmatic stature over the years. Throw Neil Young into the mix, and you’d have a trio of mercurial Mystery Men for the ages.
