      No Comments on Van Morrison “Best of” out November 6th

From the press release:


(Los Angeles, CA) – More than 40 years since bursting out of Belfast with Them, Van Morrison continues to make great music, continues to tour the world, and continues to inspire and engage new generations of fans and artists alike.

Here on Still On Top – The Greatest Hits (Hip-O/Ume) are 21 classic tracks that chronicle Van’s incredible journey so far; all remaining true to his mantra “it’s always been about soul.”

Featuring selections spanning his work from 1964 to 2005, Still On Top – The Greatest Hits is the definitive collection of Van’s original recordings. There are musical milestones from five decades of prolific recording, including – for the first time on a Greatest Hits collection – his powerful songs from the 90s and the new millennium. Among the gems included are 1995’s “Days Like This,” an alternative version of 1997’s “Healing Game” and an already-classic from 2005, “Stranded.”

Still On Top – The Greatest Hits moves seamlessly across the genres, reflecting a career which began in the 60s with the hat-trick of “Here Comes The Night,” “Gloria” and “Brown-Eyed Girl” and has not faltered since. Highlights from the Seventies include “Domino,” “Jackie Wilson Said (I’m In Heaven When You Smile),” and “Warm Love.” Among those selected from the Eighties are the romantic ballad “Someone Like You” (one of many Van songs borrowed by the big screen, in this case for Bridget Jones’s Diary) and the glorious “Have I Told You Lately?.”
