In October 2000 Van Morrison began work on his second collaboration with Linda Gail Lewis. The previous month ‘You Win Again’ an album of rock ‘n’ roll, country and blues covers had been released. This next album provisionally titled Choppin’ Wood contained Linda Gail Lewis’s vocals and piano parts overdubbed on all bar one track.

Touring his legendary Astral Weeks album appears to have rejuvenated Van Morrison. His 35th solo studio album is his jazziest: the warm brass and catchy, sweet melodies recall 1970’s Moondance. But the music’s velvet glove delivers some of his hardest-hitting lyrics. With the global economic meltdown providing inspiration, End of the Rainbow finds him rueing capitalism, materialism and social climbing. Educating Archie lines up targets like ducks: “global elites”, “slavery to capitalism”, control by media and – most wonderfully – “entertainment on TV and all kinds o’ shite!” Morrison is famously curmudgeonly, and there’s more black humour in the sublime Goin’ Down to Monte Carlo. Like a Belfast Mark E Smith, he flees Sartre’s “hell” of other people only to find himself bombarded by “some kind of phoney pseudo-jazz!” Elsewhere, his moods swing like the rhythm section. Open the Door is warm and friendly, Pagan Heart a Doorsy blues. Of all the songs here, If in Money We Trust – a mantra-like rumination on the love of Mammon over God – most deserves to join his pantheon of classics.

In Wavelenght magazine No. 1 there was an article by the leading Irish poet Paul Durcan called “The Drumshambo Hustler” which was first printed in the litery magazine MAGILL in May, 1988. The article attempts to put Van’s poetry into a modern Irish context and he contends that Patrick Kavanagh and Van Morrison are the two finest poets in Ireland in his lifetime. A Quote by Van Morrison on lyrics, music, people, poetry, and words in lyrics music people poetry words.
