Van Morrison

Ever since I saw Van Morrison perform in The Last Waltz I've been buying his music and can't think of anything I've bought that I don't like. Even so I knew little about him except that he grew up in Belfast, Northern Ireland. This documentary, Van Morrison: Under Review: 1964-1974 describes where he came from and how he developed his music, his first single hits, the first big album, Astral Weeks, and on, including interviews with Morrison, his biographers, associates, and also a lot of music. The video takes about and hour and fifty minutes. [Apparently you need to go through to Crackle to watch.]
