EDITORS’ NOTES

Few albums define an era like Moondance, a 1970 release that brings together several of our all-time favorite Van Morrison tracks. The opener, “And It Stoned Me,” simmers with the swaggering soul inflection that runs through most of the album. But the fusion of jazz, folk, R&B, and Irish mysticism is a stylistic playground for the volcanic vocalist. He’s clearly having a blast—whether he's gliding through the Sinatra-esque title track or belting out a full-throated command to “turn it up…the radio” on “Caravan.”
