Van Morrison - How Can A Poor Boy

“Chase my congregation, chase my flock. I was a shepherd of men. Chase the wild goose, chase the pot of gold. Chase the rainbow’s end. How can a poor boy deliver this message to you when you don’t believe anything that’s true?” A good, solid blues beat delivers a beautiful opening cut to a solid album. Bare-bones band that sounds like it was recorded live in the studio. “I’ve been anointed, been appointed , even been magnified.” Harmonica, fiddle, acoustic guitars, good old fashioned tasty home-spun blues with a perfect touch of humor for spice. “Tell me, what evil lurks in the hearts of men? Only the shadow knows.” LOL. Shoutout for Keep It Simple. Van Morrison
