Listen free to Van Morrison – The Best of Van Morrison (Bright Side Of The Road, Gloria and more). Equal parts blue-eyed soul shouter and wild-eyed poet-sorcerer, Van Morrison is among popular music's true innovators, a restless seeker whose incantatory vocals and alchemical fusion of R&B, jazz, blues, and Celtic folk produced perhaps the most spiritually transcendent body of work in the rock & roll canon

The Best of Van Morrison is a compilation album by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison. It compiles songs spanning 25 years of his recording career. Released in 1990 by Polydor Records, the album was a critical and commercial success, becoming one of the best-selling records of the 1990s and helping revive Morrison's mainstream popularity. Its success encouraged him to release a second and third greatest hits volume in 1993 and 2007, respectively. The album remains Morrison's best-seller.

The Best of Van Morrison Volume Two is a compilation album by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison released in 1993. Morrison chose the tracks for this album himself. It is mostly drawn from his work during 1984-1991. Real Real Gone" from the 1990 album Enlightenment was the only song included that was a fairly successful single.

As the story goes, Van Morrison wanted nothing to do with his first greatest hits collection. The Best of Van Morrison was acclaimed by critics from Goldmine and Q magazine, who called it essential.

Morrison was reluctant at first to have a greatest hits album released, although its success encouraged him to personally select tracks for

Nor should it be assumed that this is a collection of great songs that he's written in that decade-and-a-half, since this is chock-full of covers, including revivals of songs he recorded throughout his career

Van Morrison's soulful 1970 ballad was no doubt playing in the background as many a baby was being made. The tender track has been one of the most covered songs throughout the years, as Robbie Robertson, Aaron Neville, and Brian Kennedy all had their versions featured on film soundtracks. Rod Stewart, Bryan Ferry, Helen Reddy, and Michael Bolton have also covered the track. The track itself had a bizarre trajectory, as it was finally released as a single seven years after the album came out. 3. 'Domino'. From: 'His Band and the Street Choir' (1970). You can't have a Van Morrison 10 Best Songs list without including 'Brown Eyed Girl. While it seems unfathomable that the song was ever named anything else, Van reveals that the track was initially called 'Brown Skinned Girl. He remarked, "That was just a mistake.
