Thoughts on Songs with Van Morrison

I find many of his songs mystical in a spiritual sense. In live performance he injects an interpretation that is very soulful. And his interjections are worshipful. IN the third line you will here him say 'if you've been born-again' on live renditions. These are the days of Redemption, the Day of the LORD, as it were.
