Not that there was much competition, but with this album, Morrison made a convincing case for his being the Irish Al Green. The classic Memphis soul sound he adopts here is a logical extension of the R&B roots he had expanded on since the beginning of his career. Helped out here by Dr. John, he presents a group of songs that are among his most visceral and immediate. Miles from the dreamy minstrelsy of VEEDON FLEECE, this recording is based around solid, propulsive R&B grooves that lay an undeniable claim to dancing feet while the lyrics still address the kind of spiritual concerns that have become a Morrison trademark. Van at his funkiest.
