Van Morrison should be right up my avenue. But he wasn’t. For years. To be fair, I was only 12 years old when Astral Weeks came out but, in the early seventies, he was, as they say, right in my wheelhouse. But, for whatever reason, I didn’t bite.
Fourteen years, and 11 albums later, I paid attention.
Bob Harris played this song as a pre-release from the Beautiful Vision album. I was lying on my sofa, headphones on. Despite the sofa, I was floored.
Since then, I have bought everything. I have seen him many times (not a duff gig, thanks,) and love his music.
So, what will you admit to coming late to? What was the track that did it?
