I was rooting around looking for CD's to change out my in the stereo in my truck. I came across a Van Morrison CD he put out in '83. I was at a party back then and the host had the latest Van Morrison album 'Inarticulate Speech of The Heart'. It wasn't opened yet. We pealed off the plastic and put it on the turntable.
Wow...I remember thinking this was the best music I've ever heard...I was at a loss for words.
I bought the album the next day and played it so much I wore it out.
Van Morrison 'Higher Than The World' 1983
