Unfortunately, "oh" i ...

Not so with Van Morrison's new collection "Duets: Re-Working the Catalogue" which skips obvious hits like "Moondance" and "Brown-Eyed Girl" for overlooked, sometimes eccentric tracks from memorable albums like "The Healing Game" and "A Period of Transition." The result is a warm, refreshi ...
