Lyrics

If I ventured in the slipstream
Between the viaducts of your dream
Where immobile steel rims crack
And the ditch in the back roads stop

And the ditch in the back roads stop

Pretty great stuff.

If I was stuck on island alone this album could get me through
...don't (think) Van....
This may have been the precursor to the much later Queen of the Slipstream. I don't Van ever released a complete buzz killer or a filler dud on anything. Van Da Man.
My baby loves this song, I feel like she truly feels the message being expressed albeit she can't even talk yet...it's just that uplifting
Truly, truly... simply dripping with emotion and soul. That Van...
Vans the Man......man

this music makes you feel as though feeling everything is intensified to the nth degree...jus t so sublime
Great comment Nate and oh so true.
Van Morrison is the true begining of EMO music in it's most unabashed form. If you can find this album buy it, listen to it, and be happy...no one else put themselves out ther like he did, not even YOU.
