Van Morrison didn’t really settle into the role of gypsy soul-man until the sixties were winding down and he was out on his own - see the inimitable 'Astral Weeks', for example.
But before he was a true lightning rod for feel and groove, Morrison was a rock and roll vocalist who howled with a voice and flow that rivalled the best of the dancehall era hit-makers.
