REVIEW: VAN MORRISON AT BOURNMOUTH PAVILLION

I FIRST SAW VAN MORRISON AT BIRMINGHAMS RAINBOW SUITE CLUB IN 1965. I WAS A PRECOCIOUS UNDER-AGE YOUNGSTER.  VAN MORRISON HAD ALREADY HAD TWO HUGE POP HITS WITH BABY PLEASE DON'T GO AND HERE COMES THE NIGHT WITH HIS BELFAST BAND THEN.
  
EVEN THEN, VAN MORRISON WAS A MAVERICK DURING THE SET HE WANDERED OFFSTAGE, LEAVING THE AUDENCE PERPLEXED A FEW MINUTES LATER HE STROLLED BACK ON ASTONISHING THE YOUNG CROWED BY SWIGGING FROM A BOTTLE OF GUINNESS AND SMOKING A CIGARETTE. UNPROFESSIONAL? PERHAPS. A BAD EXAMPLE? MAYBE. COOL AND UNFORGETTABLE? DEFINITELY.
