I want to rock your gypsy soul (Happy birthday, Van Morrison)

Happy birthday, George Ivan Morrison!!
Van Morrison was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on Aug. 31, 1945. He started playing guitar at age 11, and by 14 was learning saxophone and reading music.

His father had an extensive record collection so Morrison grew up listening to a diverse mix of music—blues, jazz, gospel, folk, and country & western. It explains why Morrison’s albums vary in musical genre from release to release.

Here’s some pure Celtic Soul from 1970’s Moondance LP, “Into the Mystic.”  http://youtu.be/gVAnlke_xUY
