The subtitle of Van Morrison's new album, Born to Sing: No Plan B, indicates the power that music still holds for this living legend. "No Plan B means this is not a rehearsal," says Morrison. "That’s the main thing—it’s not a hobby, it’s real, happening now, in real time."

5.0 out of 5 stars Van is still the man..... March 1, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Since I thought I was reviewing "Van Morrison Goes To the Movies", that is what this is.
"Well, this looked like just another attempt to wring a few more bucks out of a loyal fan base, but I am such a fan of Van that I got it anyway. It turned out to be one of those CD's that took over my car stereo for about 20 trips thru. Nice little ditties from the beginning to end, especially if U love Van. Then the last song begins, "Hello, Is Anybody In There", Roger Waters setting up Van singing "Comfortably Numb". Wow...........

The Roots of Van Morrison is a quite a good selection of early blues from various artists for those of U that love blues.

I can relate to some of Van Morrison's ambiences from listening to this compilation. This is a curiosity disc and if you want to know buy this.

I did not like this CD. I thought that this would be Van Morrison singing but it was various other artists singing. Not happy with it at all!!!!
