Born to Sing: No Plan B – Van Morrison | Songs, Reviews, Credits, Awards | AllMusic

Hi Boppers! Here is an excellent review of the fantastic new release by one of my old faves, Van Morrison. I was stunned by the cut, “If in Money We Trust,” while driving on Hwy 1. I listened to the end and thank god the DJ had the wherewithall to announce who the heck it was, because at the time I didn’t recognize the old Irish bard’s seminal vocals. I bought the album right away when I got home (on iTunes).
