A Period of Transition

A Period of Transition (1977)

A Period of Transition is the ninth studio album by Northern Irish singer/songwriter Van Morrison, released in 1977 (see 1977 in music). It was his first album in two and a half years, largely forgotten or looked over by most casual fans. At the time of its release it was received with some disappointment by critics and fans: "Most were hoping for a work of primeval vocal aggression that would challenge the emerging élite of Morrison pretenders, whose ranks included Bruce Springsteen, Bob Seger, Phil Lynott, Graham Parker and Elvis Costello."(Johnny Rogan) However, the album is still notable for several major compositions, including "Heavy Connection," "Flamingos Fly," "The Eternal Kansas City" and "Cold Wind in August".

Douglas Brock - An ex-girlfriend turned me on to Van Morrison And I have been hooked ever since and that was 1999 the relationship didd'nt turn out all that well, But at least I got Van Morrison's music out of the deal, and that alone

Sonny - I am looking for the name of a song. I believe some of the lyrics where something to the effect of skinny and fat. About a woman and how he prefers them. (4 years ago)
