Van Morrison's album Astral Weeks turns 40

“If I ventured in the slipstream / Between the viaducts of your dream / Where immobile steel rims crack / And the ditch in the back roads stop”: with this Dylan like imagery, the 23-year-old Van Morrison sucked you into his second album in 1968.

A masterful marriage of soul, folk, and jazz called Astral Weeks. Author and journalist Ryan Walsh got to the bottom of it in Astral Weeks: a Secret History of 1968, and is coming to talk about it at the AB. Stick around for the listening session!

ASTRAL WEEKS 27/11, 19.30 Ancienne Belgique
